KASKO

KASKO means “great blue herron” in Abenaki and is the symbol of patience and strength.  When one looks at the blue heron, the KASKO, it stands tall, with one leg up and head to the sky calling to the Almighty Creator.

Our story

Angélique and Pepper met in 2018, and immediately the two felt a connection through the power and magic of storytelling and the impact it has on its audience. They found they both shared a similar story, one of overcoming adversity and their common belief that they could change the world and make it a place of compassion and understanding through the development of quality content in the mainstream media that expresses our current reality through themes that will challenge and inspire others.

One inclusive of diversity and by offering voice and a place in mainstream media, it would hold the power to create better relationships, and better understandings of each other, and in terms of oneself. 

Building stronger bridges would be the start of their beautiful professional history.

We need to resist the tyranny of low expectations. We need to open our eyes to the inequality that remains. We won’t unlock the full potential of the workplace until we see how far from equality we really are.

Our Vision

Through the power of storytelling, we hope to promote diversity and embrace the uniqueness of others in order to build an understanding not only of each other but to gain a stronger sense of self.

Our Mission

To build a talent incubator where diversity and inclusion are ingrained in our people and to collaborate with artists from across the globe to produce content from concept to production in order to bring forth a better future, one of understanding and connection.

What we do

Documentary

Flying high, far and thinking

Documentary films are the perfect vehicle to leaving an impact and to evoke important dialogues. We want to embrace stories that open people up to a better understanding of each other, with all our diversity. By focusing on stories of diversity we cannot only empower the storytellers’ visions but open new forms of thinking to our audiences and create a more understanding and compassionate world.

Fiction

Tell and meet the universal

Fiction gives us the power to tell stories with flexibility, and to push narratives with powerful storylines. It is our mandate to bring more diverse characters to the forefront empowering and embracing new perspectives that we have yet to see on the screen.

Digital Media

Showing the world our content

Today’s world is fast-changing and digital media has become a great means for engaging audiences and even inviting new ideas into the mix. The opportunities are endless, as people we love to be involved, feeling included, it is something everyone craves at their core, it is a feeling of togetherness and with creating projects with this focus in mind, the connections created are powerful. We know that it is necessary to include our audiences in these important dialogues and with digital media as a platform we create potential to do just that. Create bigger communities of understanding and togetherness while funnelling through our differences and finding our likenesses, making our audiences stronger together.

Animation

To be free to dream

Animation is a fun way to create new perspectives, creating characters that reflect today’s world and writing stories that open our hearts up to the beauty of its diversity. With the flexibility animation presents, in storytelling, we can reach larger audiences with hopes to impact all ages.
