Coco Peri is a California-based artist creating stop-motion videos for the world's leading brands and teaching other creatives how to infuse magic and strategy into their businesses. Her clients include Sony, Califia Farms, Starbucks, 3M, Doritos & more! She is also one of Sony's Alpha Females— working to empower women in film + photography. Her secret mission is to empower people and companies to unlock their creativity, awaken their imagination, and take risks in pursuing what they love—and she did just that! Coco left her corporate marketing job because it was draining her energy and she found she spent her spare time dreaming of a better way to make brands come to life. One day, she pulled the plug and just started to perfect her art and create stop-motion videos for brands she admired. Those brands caught wind and the rest is history.
In addition to bringing a wide variety of products, organizations and destinations to life in a playful and powerful way, Coco also coaches the business and art of stop-motion photography to a wide variety of aspiring and accomplished professionals, cultivating a community of magic-makers in the process. As a member of the Sony Alpha Female community, Coco is committed to inspiring up and coming female photographers and helping them develop their voice and style.
Imbued with wit, humor, energy, and optimism, Coco’s presentations and interactive workshops unlock creativity for executives at firms like Adobe, creative artists in a wide variety of specialties, and anyone who is keen to tap into a deeper level of creative expression and revolutionize how we bring ideas, things and places to life.
