A Telly award-winning partnership, Ian and Tim met in a documentary pitching class as graduate students at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. After collaborating on small projects during that semester, they forged a creative alliance that they cemented when they flew to New York a year later to film Tim's thesis film, Cal & V. After graduation, Tim went into writing and directing, while Ian went into producing. In the years that followed, they continued to work together, creating well over one million dollars in productions that garnered tens of millions of views, ultimately leading them to bring their skill sets together under one roof.
Coco Butter is the culmination of their desire to raise the bar across productions, from the quality of the storytelling and images created, to the standards that crews are held to and treated with. They both share a dream of developing Coco Butter into an inclusive, industry-leading media company that is recognized for the values of creative inspiration, honest collaboration and hard work exemplified by its founders.
