Saucy Momo makes video for good.
Whether it’s sustainable development in Africa, ethical farming in South America, body positivity in Regent Park, or medical cannabis in an undisclosed location, we win hearts and minds through poignant, agile, and strategic storytelling.
If you are creating good in the world, we want to create game-changing video content for you.
Ken is the former head of video production for Ogilvy & Mather, where he built the giant advertising agency’s in-house production capabilities from the ground up, and helped shape the narrative for brands like Dove, IBM, Coca Cola, Tim Horton’s, and Cadbury.
He then defected from the agency world to shoot for WE Charity, spending two years shooting in Kenya, Ethiopia, India, and Ecuador.
Meanwhile, Ken also shot music-docs with artists like Gord Downie, Macklemore and Nelly Furtado, and has directed over 50 music videos for many of Canada’s top artists. Furthermore, his writing has been published by the Toronto Star, National Post, and en Route, to name a few.
Saucy Momo represents the culmination of all of these experiences.
Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood is home to the largest concentration of Tibetan people outside of Asia. Parkdale is also where Ken spent his years after graduating from film school, eating saucy momos (affordable and delicious Tibetan dumplings with lots of sauce), scheming on how to make “video for good” in the years to come. Hence, the name serves as a playful reminder of our production company’s ethos and humble origins.
Saucy Momo is a mythical unicorn that delivers agency quality at an indie price-point.
We believe that a small, tight-knit unit of tech-savvy storytelling dynamos can outperform a large crew of creatives and techs. This agility enables us to spend more time understanding client needs, creating intimacy for our subjects, going the extra mile (or continent) for our clients, and over-delivering on emotional and production value.
