John Cameron Mitchell Shoots Promo for DIOR via Anonymous
Press Release from Anonymous
Director John Cameron Mitchell and Anonymous Content, in a direct-to-client relationship with high-end fashion, fragrance and accessory giant DIOR, just released an epic 6:00 promo for the company. Lady Grey London is a fanciful mini-epic that funnels the DIOR mystique through the actions of the enrapturing Lady Dior - across one night in London.
Mitchell wrote the script and worked closely with DIOR's in-house creative group over a few weeks to complete the concept. The project followed the release of this year's acclaimed Rabbit Hole, a Mitchell-directed film about a couple struggling to deal with the death of their young son.
The video follows another Anonymous Content-produced viral short for DIOR, DIOR Homme Fragrance's Un Rendez Vous, a sexual tryst set in Paris, directed by Guy Ritchie, and starring Jude Law. "We have a very good relationship with DIOR," noted Anonymous Content EP/Head of Commercials Dave Morrison. "They were really big on John after seeing his recent work, and were thrilled we could deliver him for their campaign. His work is second to none. But that's what sets Anonymous apart - our ability to deliver the best talent to turn out projects that perfectly balance advertising and Hollywood."
