Bram Coppens

Venice, Calif.-based production company Slim has added Belgian director Bram Coppens to its roster for commercials and branded content in the U.S.  Coppens made his mark with campaigns for Adidas, including “Brazuca,” which introduced the new ball for the FIFA World Cup and won Silver and Bronze Clios, as well as “Golf Anthem.” He also directed a Super Bowl campaign for Jeep (featuring the spot “Love Story”) and commercials for Range Rover and Dockers.
