Truman & Cooper are a directing duo based in Paris. With a standout portfolio of commercials and music videos to their name (originated from their favourite Twin Peaks characters), Jonathan and Anthony are incredibly gifted directors. Their authentic approach to filmmaking has won them multiple awards and nominations from 1.4 to the British Arrows, alike.
Gaining immediate international recognition with the release of their first music video ‘Hope’ for Kids Wise, their unfiltered exploration of youthful romanticism and brutality was considered ground breaking. Evoking a shared sense of painful nostalgia amongst juries and audiences, the video was featured in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Creator Showcase and won them the Best New Director Award at the UKMVAs.
Forever challenging the boundaries between fiction and reality, Truman & Cooper have crafted an onscreen world that confronts human stories and raw emotions through a cinematic lens. Quickly transitioning into the commercial landscape, their originality and bravery captivated Apple, Porsche, Chevrolet, McDonald's, Skoda, Babbel, Allianz, and Barclays, and secured them projects like the critically acclaimed NSPCC ‘Listen to your selfie’.
Deeply driven by germinating characters from lived experiences, casting remains their favourite part of the filmmaking process. Packing emotionally charged energy into every frame, be it television, commercial, or music video, Truman & Cooper’s creative choices are never short of extraordinary.
Today they’ve found their home at KODE, and are looking forward to directing their second TV series in 2024.
