Logan & Sons is proud to announce the signing of filmmaker David Slade for commercial representation. Previously with Anonymous Content, Slade brings a wealth of talent for crafting powerful experiences for film, music videos, and broadcast.
Boasting a diverse portfolio, Slade has helmed spots for the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood video game series, the Washington Lottery, and the MTV Exit Foundation spot “Goodnight, Travel Well,” for which he received a Cannes Silver Lion. His agency collaborations include campaigns with Cutwater, Publicis, and Saatchi & Saatchi, to name a few.
Slade also directed episodes of AMC’s Emmy Award-winning Breaking Bad, the pilot episode of NBC’s Awake, and the third film in the Twilight franchise, Twilight: Eclipse. Most recently, he has transitioned into a producer role, overseeing the development and direction of the eagerly awaited series Hannibal starring Mads Mikkelsen, Lawrence Fishburne, and Hugh Dancy.
“We’re excited to count David’s enormous creative talent as part of our team,” said Logan & Sons Founder/MD Alex Tylevich. “We look forward to developing a fruitful relationship.”
Slade got his start directing music videos for artists such as Aphex Twin, Muse, Stone Temple Pilots, Tori Amos, and System of a Down. Moving to the United States from London, England, he later directed his first feature length film, the two-character thriller, Hard Candy starring then up-and-coming actors Ellen Page and Patrick Wilson. The film was an overnight indie success and went on to win the Audience and Jury prizes at the Stiges Film Festival in Spain, followed by a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival where it was ultimately bought by Lions Gate Films. Transitioning into a full-fledged Hollywood director, Slade followed Hard Candy with the dark vampire comic book adaptation, 30 Days of Night.
