Bryan is currently the Executive Content Producer and Director of Multimedia at Team One Advertising in Los Angeles. As Executive Content Producer, Bryan helps oversee film/video work for the agency. As the head of the Multimedia Department, Bryan designs and leads the Editorial, Motion Graphics (2D & 3D), Flash and Presentation Design departments. Bryan also acts as a Senior Editor on select projects.
Prior to joining Team One, Bryan worked as an Editor and Post Producer for some of the best agencies, brands, networks and production shops in the world.

Projects Bryan has worked on have been recognized by Ad Age, Adweek, Cannes, The Effies, FWA, The One Show, the Tellys, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Bryan is also the author of The Art of Short Form Content: From Concept to Color Correction which was published earlier this year by Focal Press (more info below).
The Art of Short Form Content: From Concept to Color Correction is an in-depth examination of the craft of creating short form filmic content – a category which includes television commercials, music videos, television promos, movie trailers, digital billboards, corporate videos, and pretty much anything else with a running time under five minutes.
Though short form is an important part of the film industry, it is typically overlooked in books on the art of filmmaking. The Art of Short Form Content fills this industry void by answering the type of questions that working short form content creators deal with every day.
“In The Art of Short Form Content Bryan Cook surprises with the obvious: cutting through the noise to deliver a powerful and popular-minded view on our new ways of watching and looking. Filmmakers, advertising agencies, and video content consumers (that is, all of us!) will agree — this book is long overdue.” Pablo Del Campo – Worldwide Creative Director, Saatchi & Saatchi.
Over the last few years video has begun to be used in new and previously unimagined ways. As an Executive Content Producer I have been lucky enough to oversee a wide variety of “industry firsts” that push the boundaries of what video is capable of. Here is a small sampling of some of the more interesting projects I have worked on.
