Award-winning director Tim Godsall, formerly of Biscuit Filmworks LA, has joined Anonymous Content for commercial representation in the US, UK and Europe. The signing grew out of a relationship that developed while Anonymous produced Godsall’s upcoming feature film debut, Len and Company, starring Rhys Ifans, Juno Temple and Jack Kilmer.
About the experience of making a first film and switching commercial production companies, Godsall says, “Getting this movie made would have been almost impossible without the help of Steve Golin and the Anonymous team. Making a little independent feature is such a precarious and intense experience, but during the process of making it my respect for Steve and Anonymous kept growing. When the time came to get back into commercials, it made sense to do it with those guys. They’ve got great directors and very smart people running the place. Now I’m just excited to wade into a really good commercial project.”
Executive Producer Steve Golin echoes the sentiment, saying, “We’ve long admired Tim’s work and wanted to be in business with him for quite a while. The filmmaking process went so well that we decided to join forces and work together.”
Tim Godsall is an internationally acclaimed commercial director known for his offbeat brand of dialogue- and performance-driven comedy. A profile in Shots described his work as among “the funniest, quirkiest, and downright oddest commercials of the past decade…[which] helped reshape American TV advertising.” An expert of visual storytelling, Godsall is the recipient of over two-dozen Cannes Lions, various Clios, Andys, BTAAs, as well as a DGA nomination, leading him to be named the most awarded commercial director in the world by the 2013 Gunn Report.
