we are bib media
Sprouted from the experienced Kenton Young and Joe Mauceri, Born in Brooklyn Media is a full-service production company. Founded with the same principles that made Brooklyn so popular, BIB Media values and employs the four H's to all of our clients’ needs.
Like most people born in Brooklyn, we have a sense of pride in everything we do. We want our work to be something that both we and our clients can be proud to share with others.
There’s no B.S. in Brooklyn! Well, there is, but here you get called on it. At BIB Media, we aren’t a bunch of “Yes People” who are going to tell you what you want to hear. We are going to tell you what you need to know to produce the best product. We believe in authenticity because real stories are the ones that have the biggest impact.
Brooklyn may be hot and trendy now, but it was built on a blue-collar work ethic. We bring that attitude to every job we do.
We welcome everyone to our neighborhood; our business is personal. We value relationships and genuinely helping others. No matter how big or small the task, we want our clients to know we have their back. When you work with us, you become part of the BIB family.

Leeanna Hariprashad is a student filmmaker, artist, and New York native who currently studies visual arts at Fordham University. She was born and raised in Queens to a Guyanese family. She believes that filmmaking is one of the most powerful ways to spread messages and bring people together.
She has worked on several student films as well as a number of her own. While working as a production assistant on the student-made dramatic film Echoes of a Winter Sunshine, she shot and edited a behind-the-scenes project to capture the labor of love that is filmmaking. Her own work touches on much of her personal life as a means to extend familiarity to viewers through emotion and relatability. Other aspects of her work are observational, with a heavy focus on visuals and weaving real life into loose storytelling.
As a young Indo-Guyanese woman, she plans to use future projects to tell the stories of people within the culturally diverse group she is part of, as well as relay positive, unifying messages on a larger scale.
