Burcu & Geoffrey

Directors

Burcu & Geoffrey, are a directing duo composed of Burcu Sankur & Geoffrey Godet, who work together to create a beautiful balance of both craft and observation. Burcu, a native of Istanbul, is passionate about illustration and design, and Geoffrey, a Frenchman, is fascinated with 3D animation and its technical aspects.

The pair started creating projects together during their studies at Supinfocom Valenciennes. While they each have individual voices, a shared affinity for simple geometric shapes and beautiful composition gives life to some wonderfully whimsical shorts - including their film 'Tant de Forets' which won the Crystal in the TV film category competition of the Annecy Animation Festival 2014.

Burcu & Geoffrey are represented in the UK by STUDIO AKA
