About

Lunch and Recess is an Emmy Award Winning visual content agency founded in 2010.

They say it takes a village to raise a child, and at L+R we’ve taken that timeless proverb to heart.
Your marketing campaign is your baby and we are here to help you raise it, feed it, and take it to school - on time, and on budget. Metaphorically speaking.
When you partner with L+R you get a whole village of creative elves (aka a "Visual Content Agency") producing their pointy lil ears off.

Our clients say:

The team at Lunch and Recess is one of the most talented, professional, and FUN teams I've worked with. They become an extension of your team and treat every deliverable with thought and care. Their expertise is unmatched. I would highly recommend them.

Kari KennedyD. Marketing Manager, MyOrthos

Ryan, and his entire crew, are great! Everyone is professional and very responsive to our correspondence; he heard our ideas & vision for the project, and also advised what would/would not work - this was much appreciated and just enhanced the finished product tenfold...took it to the next level for us. From the beginning stages, the entire experience has been positive & fun - the finished video just incredible. We'll definitely work with this team for future projects! Thank you, L&R!!

Melanie PigottContent Strategy Lead, Benevis

Ryan and the gang are amazing! We have both worked for them and with them, and they are creative, bright, bubbly people who love what they do. Their passion is contagious and shows in their amazing portfolio. 10/10 would recommend!

Becca BarnetFounder, Sisal Creative

Ryan and the crew did a great job on a last minute project that they helped me on. At the last minute, the post production team I had for a project backed out... So I called Ryan, who I've wanted to work with for some time, and he made his team available that weekend to get everything done that I needed. I'm very thankful to them, they saved my project, and made it great.

I've had the privilege to work with Ryan and *Perk* at Lunch + Recess as a content partner for Vertical Roots and AmplifiedAg the last 6 months. In doing multiple projects with the team on a retainer basis, they have been able to view our business through a different lens and totally dive in to develop new creative concepts that we wouldn't have thought of. The value they bring as a content parter is insurmountable. Professional, creative, and always willing to go the extra mile to deliver an end product that is SUPERIOR! 5 stars all around ✨

Ryan Cockrell

He/Him

Ryan is the glue that holds this all star team together. Years of experience, animal-keen senses, and an adamantium skeleton form the ultimate content creating titan. His only weakness? Chainsaws.

But what does Ryan do when he’s not leading armies of content creators to victory? Well an easier question might be, what doesn’t he do? He’s an expert surfer, skater, golf man, bike dude, mechanic feller, and most importantly a farmer guy. If you’re lucky, he might just tell ya about his mower.

…but don’t ask to ride it.

Producer/Editor

Perk Utsey

She/Her

On the clock, Perk’s an animator/producer extraordinaire. This sweethearts blood courses with niche 90s anime, chicken parmesan, and cat hair. (0h and white blood cells of course.) This is the source of her gyroscopic balance and incredible leg strength.

Off the clock, she’s can be found skateboarding about town, listening to “bleep bloop” music, and beating everyone at video games. Seriously, she can’t be beat. Mario Kart? No way. Smash Bros? Forget about it. Zelda? Well that’s a single player game so that doesn’t really apply here but I mean, I’m sure she’s good at it….

Producer/Editor

Chris Freeman

He/Him

Chris is a content creating machine! He runs off a Bionic 6-core GPU system with 17,000 GB of RAM (give or take depending on what programs are running.) His power level is OVER 9000!

Ok. All jokes aside, Chris is a fantastic artist and an even better Dad. After a long day of creating content he goes home to take care of the family. We told you he’s a machine. And he has bat wings, did we mention that yet?
