- LOS ANGELES
Production and management company Anonymous Content has signed director Marco Prestini for commercial representation in North America. Prestini’s poetic visual style marks a body of work that spans award-winning fashion films, music videos, and commercials for brands including BMW, Vogue and UNIQLO.
The winner of a Gold Cannes Young Director Award for his “Star* Back Home” campaign for Italian luxury brand Golden Goose, Prestini has had work screened at the 2017 Milan Fashion Film Festival and the 2017 Silver Horse International Film Festival. His acclaimed dark modern fairy tale, Three Rivers, also for Golden Goose, screened at multiple film festivals, including the 2015 Interference Festival where it won Best New Creative Advertising Piece.
“Marco is a fresh, vibrant talent. His style of cinematic storytelling fits seamlessly into the Anonymous Content roster,” said Eric Stern, Anonymous Content’s managing director and partner.
Prestini was previously at Strangelove for commercial representation in the U.S. He continues to be handled by Lark Creative for music videos in the U.S.
Born and raised in Italy, Prestini grew up with a fascination for visual arts, encouraged by his family’s passion for photography, music and art. He began his directing career while studying economy at the prestigious Italian business school Bocconi University in Milan, where he founded Flash Factory, a small collective dedicated to the creation of films that focused on fashion and underground culture. With his knack for blending engaging imagery with his knowledge of underground music culture, Prestini continued his career with arresting music videos for artists including Tierra Whack and Li Yuchun.
“I feel extremely fortunate and honored to join such a legendary roster and team,” Prestini said of his new roost, Anonymous Content.
Prestini, who also holds a BFA in cinematography at Art Center College of Design, now splits his time between Milan and Los Angeles.
