Films and Documentaries

Some of the films and documentaries that I have directed, written and/or produced.


Dead Cool is the story of modern family relationships, as seen through the eyes of 15 year-old David.

Six years after his dad dies in a car crash, David’s mum moves in with the new man in her life. As the two families come together – complete with teenage step brothers and sisters, a crushingly acerbic granny and one feisty, American self-help guru ex-wife – David has fantasies of his father’s ghost returning to disrupt the new step-family and test its survival. Dead Cool was written and directed by David Cohen.
