DIRECTOR · WRITER · PRODUCER
adjective: lively, bold, full of spirit; a little bit cheeky.
Sassy Mohen's innovative and bold, confident style is full of spirit and has emerged as a pioneer in the genre of female-driven storytelling. She has directed, written, produced, and edited multiple award-winning FILMS, TV PILOTS, MUSIC VIDEOS, COMMERCIALS, SPECS and WEBSERIES.
In August of 2006, Sassy Mohen began pre-production on her first independent feature film, HAPPY HOLIDAYS when she was still a junior in film school at Chapman University. Denied support from the school because the project was “too ambitious," the film would go on to turn a profit, screen in indie theaters around the country and get worldwide distribution with IndieFlix. She credits this to their (then) unorthodox marketing campaign utilizing brand-new social media platforms, youtube, twitter & facebook.
Sassy jumped at the release of innovative new equipment such as the red camera, the digital SLR, 6k and was the first filmmaker to create a narrative short with audio on Google Glass. She was quick to adopt the web series as a dynamic and affordable medium, winning accolades with her rom-com ABOUT ABBY.
In 2017, she was tapped by FX for the online web channel, THIS IS AOK, to write, direct, produce and edit their online comedy shorts. This propelled her into an auspicious commercial directing career, working with a variety of film production companies, brands, apps, and colleges such as DISNEY+, BUD LIGHT, BLUE DIAMOND, PEPPERIDGE FARM, HELLO KITTY, THE KELLOGG FOUNDATION & SABIO. Recently in 2022, she shot several promotional spots for the new DISNEY STUDIOS film, DISENCHANTED.
Her short, FEAR ACTUALLY was released in April 2020 to rave reviews including winning BEST FEMALE DIRECTOR at the NIAGARA INDIE FILM FESTIVAL, the TORONTO INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL & FANTASTIC INDIE FESTIVAL of LOS ANGELES, among other festival wins and is currently available on YOUTUBE.
Her newest lively and a little bit cheeky venture digital series HOW TO HACK BIRTH CONTROL, shines a light on how to navigate and take charge in today’s contraception universe. BIRTH CONTROL is smashing the 2022 & 2023 festival circuit and already picked up awards for BEST PICTURE (Austin Film Festival 2022,) BEST DIRECTOR (First Glance Film Festival 2022,) & (Astoria Film Festival 2022,) BEST TV (Hollywood Comedy Short Festival 2022,) BEST SERIES PILOT (Film Invasion LA 2022,) (We Make Movies 2022,) (Imagine This Women’s Film Festival 2022,) & (Offshore Art and Film Festival 2022,) to name just a few. The film is also an OFFICIAL SELECTION of Bentonville Film Festival 2022, Cinequest 2022, Newfilmmakers NY 2022, and more.
Sassy is currently in development for her next feature film On the Hook, a drama surrounding the impact of the recent overturning of Roe V. Wade on three college students in Texas along with other film and series projects.
