Anonymous Content Wins Two Direction Gold Lions in Cannes

Anonymous Content won big this year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, winning six gold Lion awards. Amongst Anonymous Content's directors, and partner company directors from Somesuch and Iconoclast, the team was recognised with over thirty winning and shortlisted honours.

AT&T “Close to Home,” an anti-texting film for the brand’s “It Can Wait” movement, by BBDO and directed by Frédéric Planchon, won gold for direction. Five gold Lions, including one for direction, went to the Somesuch/Anonymous Content brand film, "The Piccards" for Hennesy, directed by Danile Wolfe via Dorga5. Mark Romanek and Wieden +Kennedy's Nike Mamba Day tribute "The Conductor," featuring Kobe Bryant, received the bronze for the clothing/footwear category. Other award highlights include golds for Frederic Planchon's SSE Piers, gold and bronze awards for Volvo "Look Who's Driving Now" directed by Megaforce, and silver for Kim Gehrig's John Lewis ad, "Man on the Moon."
