MAKO is nora mandray (FRENCH) & jason b. kohl (AUSTRIAN-AmERICAN). WE'RE THE SUM OF OUR PARTS.

Our films have screened at major film festivals worldwide, including SXSW, Locarno, the Berlinale, Hot Docs, and Sheffield Doc/Fest. They've been Vimeo Staff Picked and finalists for the Student Academy Awards. While Jason comes from fiction, Nora is a documentary fanatic. Together, we strive to make films that capture poetry in our daily reality.

One motto: keep it real.

We specialize in documentary storytelling, and love to bring fiction elements to the mix. 

We write, direct, produce, shoot, and edit – subtitles included.

No matter how big the challenge, we treat each job with the same obsessive attention to detail and quality. 

Berlin-based and globally available, we swiftly go where our lens is needed.
