Director Tony Benna, who grew up in Reno, NV and studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, has signed with Detour Films for exclusive representation.  Tony unites his unique stop motion background with live action narratives to create heartfelt films for the commercial world and beyond. Tony Benna’s projects include a series of docu-style films for Dove Men as well as a series of beautiful vignettes filmed while driving across America to promote the Sh-100 camera for Samsung. Tony also co-directed a Pepsi spot for last year’s Superbowl. The flipbook-inspired ad was made up of user-submitted photographs, which flashed forward seamlessly to launch the halftime show. Added to his spots for Gap and Advertising Week, each piece showcases the mindful way that Tony uncovers beautiful moments of humanity.
