Notes Washington Square Films Director of Sales & Marketing Jonathan Schwartz, “Anson’s work is incredibly cinematic and incorporates wonderful storytelling and impeccable attention to detail. We are incredibly happy to have him join the family.”
“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,” adds Fogel. “Their diverse involvement across cinema and advertising is vital for where the industry is going.”

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, 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.
