Angela Cohen specializes in directing virtual reality and comedy. She was handpicked to be part of Google's VR initiative, JUMPSTART, where she created “Abduction”, a first person POV Thriller series. Her upcoming virtual reality film, “The Art of Saving a Life” advanced to the final round of the Sundance New Frontier Labs in 2019.

Angela directs/writes/produces comedic branded content and narrative series as well. She shadowed David Gordon Green on the set of NBC's comedy, There's Johnny, and her work as an actress includes comedic legends Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. In 2012, Angela founded Charley Bear Productions with a vision to create a shift in perspective, telling unique stories that showcase women in front of and behind the camera. Charley Bear produced its first drama “Without Grace”, starring Angela alongside Emmy award-winning actress Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale) and John Doman (The Wire). The film qualified for the 90th Annual Academy Awards, released on Amazon after a successful charitable fundraiser for NAMI, and is being adapted into a half-hour dark dramedy for television. Angela was recently hired to direct an educational film on suicide prevention for Los Angeles Unified School District in response to Without Grace. She’s passionate about making film and tv that creates a social impact, more often than not with a hilarious edge.
