Leonard Cohen is a French animator and illustrator. He achieved a master's degree in animation at Ensad (École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris) in 2009. In 2010, his graduation film Plato was selected in many festivals and won multiple awards, including the Best Student Short and the Junior Jury awards at the prestigious Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
He moved from Paris to Oakland in 2011. While working as a freelancer, he designed the TV-series Le Chiffroscope with journalist and friend David Castello-Lopes. Le Chiffroscope was bought by French TV channel Canal+ and ran weekly for three seasons (2012-2015) within the channel's flagship international news show "L'Effet Papillon". Each episode was a 2 minute animated explainer weaving hard data and facts into a funny story.
Leonard Cohen is currently back working as a freelancer and developing personal projects. He regularly works with start-ups, companies, public institutions, news agencies and film companies on their animated projects.
