Paris-based Cokau--a duo consisting of Achille Coquerel and Thomas Kauffmann--to the American ad market, met in 2006 and worked together for several years as editor and motion designer in a Parisian audiovisual studio. They began directing in 2010 as Cokau and produced numerous experimental videos pushing visual boundaries.
In 2012, Cokau won the Vimeo Award for the best experimental video for Prie Dieu and subsequently formed their own studio Cokau Lab. Since then, Cokau has won numerous awards for their expansive work which includes live action, the creation of opening title sequences and art direction for audiovisual brand content, always experimenting with each step of the process. Cokau’s fusion of editing, motion design and sound design with their live action is a prime driving dynamic behind their films.
