Atanasio + Martinez

Husband and wife directing team Anthony Atanasio and Valerie Martinez split their time between London and Los Angeles.

They are fascinated by the opportunities provided by burgeoning technologies and have been described as pushing "the technical boundaries of what advertising could and should be."

This has manifested itself in many different ways including a recent VR project for Etihad Airlines featuring Nicole Kidman.

Hotpoint appeal with an understated, visually pleasing ad for their ovens. It's a wonderfully quiet film with a lone voiceover recalling childhood memories of a bakery with affection which never descends into schmaltz. We like the subtlety of this ad, it doesn't need to shout to be heard. Another sincere piece from directors Atanasio + Martinez.
