Why Kooks? The word Kooks invokes images of a crazy person. The truth is, to do something different in media, you really have to be a little crazy to begin with. Our heroes are those people all over the world who have tried something a little different, something others thought was a lost cause - but lo and behold, they were on to something! And so are we.
Kooks Entertainment works hard to produce high quality, creative content. We are a collection of both visual artists and technical craftsman. The Kooks team has years of experience in reality, documentary, commercial, industrial and scripted content. You’ll find no cookie-cutter approach here. Each project is tackled with a unique perspective with our focus squarely on what is best for that particular assignment, not simply what has worked in the past. Each project is treated as a new opportunity to do something exciting.
