The Atlantic Council today named acclaimed writer and director Dave Anthony as a nonresident fellow in its Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security.
Anthony is best known for his pioneering work on the blockbuster Call of Duty video game franchise. In 2010, he wrote and directed Call of Duty: Black Ops, which remains the best-selling video game of all time, grossing almost $2 billion in sales as of 2014. In 2014, Anthony formed Prisoner Six Productions, a Los Angeles-based production company developing both TV and movie projects.
At the Scowcroft Center, he will draw on his experience as a writer to contribute to the “Art of Future Warfare” project, which mines narrative fiction and interactive media for real-world insights into the future of conflict.
“We at the Scowcroft Center are pleased to welcome a creative, entrepreneurial talent like Dave Anthony to the team,” said Barry Pavel, Atlantic Council vice president and Scowcroft Center director. “His forward thinking on emerging threats will better position the Scowcroft Center to provide cutting-edge analysis on how the United States must adapt for the future.”
Anthony will join the Atlantic Council in Washington, DC on October 1 from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for a public, on-the-record event titled “The Future of Unknown Conflict.” Space is limited. RSVP to press@AtlanticCouncil.org to reserve your spot or to set up a sideline interview with him.
