WME has signed British directing team Tom Jenkins and Simon Sharp, who have their own London-based commercial production company, The Theory. The two are looking to branch out beyond commercial directing and may have found their calling card in Address Is Approximate, a video short produced by Sharp and directed by Jenkins. The stop-motion animation short, about a lonely office desk toy taking a cross-country trip with the help of Google Street View, has gone viral, amassing 1.7 million viewers since it was posted 12 days ago.
