Over the course of a week editor Toddy Stewart received a couple hard drives from Anomaly containing more than a few hours of serious, sometimes dull focus group interviews taken after an amateur football tournament and during the England U21 squad training session. The attached note, the only brief he’d get, was “is there anything in here that’s usable?”

Toddy scoured the footage and found the odd bits, the off takes and the weird consistencies, made the connections and sent it back with an attached note “Yes, yes there is.”




Later, Anomaly would would duplicate the process with slightly more direction, sending a camera crew out to capture a few of their pros in the same manner, again sending it back to Toddy to find the moments.
