  • --

Park Pictures has brought Ani Acopian aboard its roster. This is her first commercial directing representation.  

A graduate of Wesleyan University’s Film Studies department, Acopian is a director and conceptual artist known for playful, witty work that often embraces new technologies. Her client list includes Adobe, Airbnb, Amazon Music, Budweiser, Chipotle, Coachella, Everlane, Facebook, Instagram, Interscope Records, MTV, Red Bull, Revlon, R/GA, T-Mobile, Sports Illustrated, Uber and W Hotels. 

She has won a number of accolades including making the cut for Forbes 30 Under 30, and Young Guns 18. Acopian has achieved finalist status at the Webbys and Shorty Awards, and was a Future of Storytelling Fellow. She and her work have appeared in Refinery 29, NPR, NYLON, The Verge, VICE, Rolling Stone, Dazed, Harper’s Bazaar, BBC, Paper Mag, and Business Insider, to name a few. 

From her nimble, fluid video “A World Artist’s Love” for AWAL, a London-based record label, shot entirely with a FPV drone, to being the recipient of the first-ever Grand Prize GIPHY awarded to Washed Up, a gif clocking in at a mere 15 seconds (the time limit for a GIF in the festival), Acopian proves that video doesn’t need to be long to get an emotion, concept, or story across. 

Acopian’s satirical spoof website for Amazon Dating went viral around Valentine’s Day in 2020, a commentary on the internet compounding modern humanity’s urge to acquire anything and everything as quickly as possible, whether it’s a jumbo pack of toilet paper or a Friday night date. “Ani is curious, yet composed,” said Justin Pollock, managing director and EP at Park Pictures. “She manipulates perception and bends reality. Her fresh and fun voice is a very welcome addition to our roster.”

“I’m really excited to be signed with Park; I feel very supported by them and I’m very much looking forward to collaborating with the entire team,” said Acopian. “The level of artistry amongst the directors they represent is super inspiring and I’m honored to be in such amazing company. I can’t wait for the work we are going to make together!”
