ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
WRITER/DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, EDITOR
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. The school’s official support was refused at first because the project was “Too Ambitious". By December 2007, the film was completed, turning a profit and screening in indie theaters around the country. She credits this to the product, cast & crew, and attraction to work with those interested in the next venture of media and social marketing.
Sassy jumped at the release of innovative new equipment such as the red camera, the digital SLR and most recently, the 4k. Quick to adopt the web series as a dynamic and affordable medium, she was the first filmmaker to create a narrative short with audio on Google Glass. Her resourceful and confident style has emerged as a pioneer in the genre of female-driven comedy.
For Sassy, it’s not about the razzle-dazzle of what’s next in technology, but showcasing quality entertainment with the most effective and accessible means for its audience. Beginning with Happy Holidays, she has utilized social media from day one, creating online content and behind the scenes for each of her projects, leading her to create digital media & branding company, ARDENTLIFE MEIDA.
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, FIRST MEDIA, HELLO KITTY, ADVANCED ROOM, PROPPER DALEY, MOTISPARK & SABIO.
Since 2006, Sassy has written, directed, produced and edited two FEATURES, multiple award winning SHORT FILMS, TV PILOTS, COMMERCIALS, MUSIC VIDEOS, SPECS and WEBSERIES. Her most recent short, FEAR ACTUALLY was released in April 2020 to rave reviews and is currently available ONLINE. She has also begun pre-production on her newest venture, digital webseries, "How to Hack Birth Control and Have (lots of) Sex Without Judgement," due to be released this spring 2021.
