A D Cooper: Creative Practitioner

From an advertising copywriting background, A D Cooper has created a string of award-winning short films most of which can be seen elsewhere on this website.

In other art forms, she’s written and directed two stage productions on the London fringe, published articles, short stories and joke books, and written the narration and ‘as live’ commentary for over 80 episodes of “Ninja Warrior” (Pintsize Pictures/Challenge TV).

Currently, A D is developing a number of feature projects as a writer for TV, film and theatre, but also working on a feature script that will be her debut as a director. In 2020, she’s attached to direct two shorts: one from her own script for Golden Arrow Productions with exec producer Camille Gatin (“The girl with all the gifts”) and the other for producer/writer A J Merlin at Adrestia Films.

She’s looking for opportunities to collaborate as either a writer and/or director. Her literary agent is Meg Davis at Ki Agency.

In addition, she is creative content controller on the Dorset Film website.

In 2019, she was selected for the BAFTA Crew (for a second year), the ITV 50:50 Comedy, and the Film London/UKTV All Voices initiatives.
