T Cooper's first film, "The Beaufort Diaries," is an animated short which he produced and adapted from his own graphic novella of the same name. The short was an official selection at a variety of film festivals both national and international (including Tribeca and SXSW). Cooper also writes for television, most recently Netflix's "The Get Down" and BBC America's "Copper." Cooper is the author of seven novels, two of which were bestsellers in the U.S. and Germany. His most recent nonfiction book is "Real Man Adventures" (McSweeney's), which explores 21st century masculinity from the personal to the universal. Cooper is also co-author (with Allison Glock-Cooper) of the four-part Young Adult novel series entitled "Changers," which the writing team is currently adapting for television (for A&E Studios/YouTube Red). Cooper's journalism and short fiction have appeared in a variety of publications, including The New Yorker, The New York Times, The New York Times Magazine, Mother Jones, Esquire, O: The Oprah Magazine, CNN.com, Out, The Advocate, The Guardian, and The Believer, as well as on Public Radio, and in many other venues both in the U.S. and abroad. Man Made is his directorial debut.
