ABOUT US /
Our creative partnership started in 2004 at Newspeak Agency where we discovered a shared passion for storytelling, filmmaking and design. In 2015 after a few long talks we decided to embark on a new creative adventure, which we call Hooligan&Co. Since our new reincarnation we have produced and continue to produce, write, and direct scripted and non-scripted narratives, documentaries, integrated marketing spots, digital campaigns and commercials. Our goal is to extend our creative vision and passion to brands, agencies and organizations, by creating content that captivates, inspires, awes and speaks.
