Hapa Media Inc.

Our mission is a commitment to telling relevant and exciting stories through ethnically-diverse and gender-varied lenses. We noted that contemporary media is often the same stories being told by the same people. This severe underrepresentation of minority and gender parity inspired us to tell everyone else's stories. Our focus is on creating opportunities for minorities in all parts of a film cast & crew by creating and executing universal stories that are actually universal.
