Anonymous content signs the direction of the duo thirty-two for spots and music videos
The thirty-two filmmaking duo of London-based Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace have signed with production and management company Anonymous Content for commercial and music video representation in the US and UK.
Southern and Lovelace’s iconic documentary on the final days of LCD Soundsystem, Shut up and play the hits (2012), received widespread critical acclaim after its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and has since been named one of the greatest music documentaries ever made by Rolling Stone, NMEand The Guardian. More recently, directors have reconstructed a mythological image of New York, with Meet me in the bathroom, based on Lizzy Goodman’s 620-page bestseller chronicling the New York music scene of the early 2000s. The documentary, which premiered at this year’s Sundance, features interviews and archival footage Moldy Peaches, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Strokes and LCD Soundsystem, and pays homage to the post-punk revival. Lovelace and Southern’s music documentary exploits also include For no distance to runa Grammy-nominated rock documentary that delves into British rock band Blur.
Southern, who is also a writer, adapted Max Porter’s novel “Grief Is the Thing with Feathers” for the screen with Film 4, and is currently working on the pilot for a TV show he created and is developing with Amazon. Studios.
The duo Thirty-Two tapped their bona fide rock star for their commercial directorial debut “Slow The Pace” for Kronenbourg, featuring legendary (and legendary pungent) Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilminster playing a stripped down version of the classic “Ace Of Spades” in a French bar. As Thirty-Two extended his work to advertisements, clients such as Apple, Nike, Samsung, VW, BBC and American Airlines followed, along with awards from Cannes Lions, British Arrows, Creative Circle, Kinsale Sharks and D&AD. Prior to joining Anonymous Content, Thirty-Two were managed by Pulse Films in commercial creation.
