Washington Square Films has signed director Anson Fogel for U.S. commercial representation. His credits include projects for such brands as Apple, Volkswagen, Burger King, GE, Microsoft, The North Face, Red Bull, National Geographic, Jeep and Marriott. With a diverse skillset as a director, writer, producer and DP, Fogel brings a holistic approach to work spanning commercials, experimental shorts, feature films and photography.
Prior to joining Washington Square Films, Fogel was with Camp4Collective. There as part of a three-person collective, he was a director on Apple iPhone’s “Don’t Mess With Mother,” which is currently nominated for the primetime commercial Emmy Award. Agency on the iPhone spot was TBWA\Media Arts Lab.
Fogel’s lifelong passion for film was ignited by a childhood spent exploring rural mountains while immersing himself in books, movies and music. He built his career on the crew side, beginning his work on set as an AC, then spending seven years as a DP before directing for brands, documentary and television work. He has won over 20 major film festival awards, including the Grand Prize and three other awards at Banff 2011, a Grand Prize at New Zealand, The Fowler Award at Telluride, The Camera prizes at Trento and Gratz, and had two narrative short film premieres at major film festivals. He is currently based in Boulder, Utah.
Jonathan Schwartz, Washington Square Films’ director of sales and marketing, said, “Anson’s work is incredibly cinematic and incorporates wonderful storytelling and impeccable attention to detail.”
Fogel related, ““The team at Washington Square Films truly cares about the work and is very creative and forward-thinking in their business model and approach to the industry. Their diverse involvement across cinema and advertising is vital for where the industry is going.”
