Andrew is an up-and-coming creative force who, sure as he is tall, is carving out his portion of the film and entertainment industry.
His most recent success was Directing, Writing, and Executive Producing (the latter with Co-Exec. Prod. Bijan Ahmadian) for the viral YouTube sensation UBC LipDub. He organized over 1000 screaming students, a platinum recording artist, five cameras, six scuba divers, two bouncy castles, three horses, two transit buses, and a helicopter -- all of which were donated (ca-ching!). Andrew managed a team of 60 from concept through to launch party. UBC LipDub, a Jab Rewind Production, caught media attention in the UK, India, Switzerland, Taiwan, and every major news source in Canada. UBC LipDub received over a hundred honours from YouTube, including spending time as the Most Watched and Most Favourited video in Canada, Most Watched Entertainment video on all of YouTube, and the Top 100 video on every continent excluding Antarctica (although I'm sure if penguins could YouTube, they would have watched it repeatedly like everyone else).
Andrew combines old school values of loyalty and education with new school trial-by-fire, cross-medium creativity, and ambition. Andrew is a Dean's List graduate and a Valedictorian from the University of British Columbia, with a BFA in Theatre. His degree coupled with his experience in many facets of theatre, television, film, concerts, mass events, corporate and community events, and new media have made him one of the youngest and freshest minds on the market.
Andrew lent his voice to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games Closing Ceremony as a featured soloist, has appeared in film and television with 20th Century Fox, CBC, and CBC Bold. He was flown to Halifax to work with the National Artist Program, a part of the Canada Winter Games. He was a judge and choreographer for the 2011 Miss Canada World Pageant. He has directed, musical directed, and choreographed critically acclaimed plays and musicals. He is the Executive Producer and Artistic Director of Andrew Cohen Productions Ltd., a cozy creative team that specializes in creating and producing music videos, theatre and film, and corporate and community events.
