Avocados and Coconuts was founded on the revolutionary idea that living the "good life" shouldn't be confined to weekends and two weeks of vacation.
Life is short enough as it is.
We are a San Francisco content collective comprised of artists, travelers, idealists and risk-takers who believe that work and play can co-mingle. After all, we came together based on a mutual devotion to the values that animate our lives. Aesthetic Beauty. Restless Creativity. Living life to the fullest.
Equipped with the industry's most innovative production gear in what we lovingly call our “creative treehouse”, we let your ideas breathe, grow, and evolve, while embracing the notion that when you remain true to simplicity and a perpetual sense of wonder, people will respond.
We love what we do and are eager to take your idea - whether fully-formed or that exciting yet-somewhat-blurry vision you had while standing in the shower - and bring it to life.
We have a 1,900 sq ft cyc with a full grid. The space can be rented for anything from birthday parties, product launces to still and video shoots. It includes three bathrooms, a beautiful kitchen and a makeup and dressing room. View full list and rates
We have three full Red Epic packages, underwater housings, 25ft jib and a steadicam plus many other industry leading pieces of equipment. View full list and rates
We may call San Francisco home but our expertise know no bounds. We've filmed in almost 20 countries and are always game to explore a new one through the lens of a camera. We have contacts in several countries including a satellite office in South Africa.

We decided to throw another Avos and Cocos party what we were not aware of - was that it would align with the "storm of the decade". In the end the wind blew some rain fell and we had one hell of a fun night. Tattoos, fish tacos, campfire smores' with a live set from My Brightest Diamond. It was a good night to remember.
We recently were featured on Refinery29 for coolest new start up offices check it out here:

Black & Veatch - Hong Kong and Indonesia
Back in June we were fortunate enough to continue our on-and-off year-long project for engineering company Black & Veatch creating a video celebrating their 100th anniversary. One of our major goals for this film was to show the expansive breadth of their work and of course there is no other way to do this than to go where the projects are. They currently have projects spanning over 100 countries and on this leg of the trip we featured a finished water treatment facilty on the Hong Kong Universtiy Campus and an ongoing power plant project in Indonesia, east of Jakarta. While it was important for us to highlight the projects themselves, we also spent a lot of time capturing the culture and people that will be affected by Black & Veatch's work. This for us is the essense of why we love travel productions. The sights, sounds and smells of filming in a far away place. There is never a dull moment and we will never tire of it. It certainly helps that we get to travel with some really fun people. On this production in particular: Director - Brandon Loper, DP - Devin Whetstone, Gaffer - Matt Rome, Arial team: Devin and Kiel Whetsone. Plus Avo's own: Dalia Burde, David Bourke and Heron Calisch-Dolen.
