The Coles, siblings Sophie and Walker Cole, are an award winning directing duo based in Los Angeles whose contemporary storytelling combines strikingly cinematic compositions and nuanced performances. Their films pull us into a world filled with carefully crafted characters, strong aesthetics, and familiar situations that succinctly communicate a range of human emotions, while gently pushing up against reality.
The Coles were born in Manhattan and grew up in the Connecticut suburbs, where they were raised in a filmmaking family. Before directing, Sophie worked as a costume designer on films and commercials, and Walker as an art dealer. Serendipitously they found themselves collaborating on a film project, after which they formally joined, and in 2016, The Coles were born.
Their commercial work includes ads for brands such as Bank of America, CVS and Tory Burch.
