Jeremy Ngatho Cole is an award-winning filmmaker and artist born in Kenya and raised in the UK.
His filmmaking career began in 2013 with a short documentary about the influence of a stepdad on his six-year-old stepson. Commissioned and broadcast by Channel 4, it was his first of three Vimeo Staff Picks that year. Since then, he has directed award-winning documentaries, short films, TV series and music videos, including three series Four To The Floor (Channel 4), which won two Broadcast Awards for Best Music Programme in 2016 and 2018; and Migrant Sound, the four-part documentary about Caribbean culture and British music that won a Webby in 2019 for Best Online Social Documentary.
In 2019, he formed YOUT with Marco Grey and they've since delivered artwork, videos and creative direction for musicians including Little Simz, Cleo Sol, Stormzy, Kojey Radical, Pa Salieu, Ezra Collective, Celeste and more.
In 2020, Jeremy wrote and directed the short film TWICE AS GOOD (produced by Fiona Lamptey, Fruitree Media & Film 4), which highlights and questions the complexities and black parenthood in Britain. It has played at several festivals and is currently available on demand on All4.
Jeremy works independently as a creative, and is represented by Kat Buckle at Curtis Brown for Film and Television.
