LOS ANGELES— Accomplice Media has signed
multi-talented filmmaker Eva Michon for exclusive representation in
commercials.  A skillful visual
storyteller with a whimsical sense of humor, Michon has earned considerable
praise for her work in music videos and fashion films, the latter including
work for such designers as Calla, Pink Tartan, Ten Over Six and Rita Liefhebber.
Her first feature-length film, Death From
Above 1979: A Fly in Amber
¸ about the Canadian dance-punk duo, is currently
in post production.
“I was drawn to Eva’s deft touch with storytelling which
ranges from whimsical in her fashion films to poignant in The Riverbed,” says
Accomplice Media Executive Producer Mel Gragido.  “She also has a good feel for contemporary  city life, 
a feel that should be intriguing for advertisers.”

Michon studied filmmaking at Ryerson University in Toronto
and began her career in Canada before relocating to Los Angeles two years ago.
Recent projects include The Streets Are
Still a Mess
for Sebastien Grainger, and The Riverbed for singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Owen
Pallett (Arcade Fire). It centers on a middle aged man and his tense encounter
with a group of street punks.
“I’m drawn to stories with clear narrative,” Michon says.
“I’m not satisfied in simply making things look beautiful, because that doesn’t
have lasting power.”
Michon’s work for fashion brands also shows her nuanced
storytelling skills. Her short fashion film Lollipop
centers on four young women (all played by actress India Menuez) who
perform a quirky a capella version of
Lil Wayne’s Lollipop during a car
trip through Brooklyn.
Michon plans to pursue advertising projects with similarly
engaging narratives. “When I’m working with a designer, I want to know where
they got the inspiration for the collection,” she insists. “If it’s a music
video, I listen to the song and talk to the artist. I try to develop something
that is visually interesting and has a concept or a story that will keep people
