Welcome to Kosmo Films, your One-Stop-Shop for high-end car commercials and branded content.

 

In 1997, Kosmo Films was founded in Los Angeles by director Nina Gwyn Weiland and DoP Sebastian Weiland as a full service production company with the goal to globally produce corporate image films and commercials.
