Our story

Soka Media, originally envisioned as OK Films, started with two best friends many years ago. As children both Jenna and Maggie were into creating at home movies and commercials. After meeting at school in the 2nd grade they knew they would be inseparable. 

 

Once they reached high school their love of film would manifest itself as “OK Films”. Though eventually parting ways to walk their own individual paths, they always remained close and dreamed of starting a company together. After some education and work experience, they felt they were ready to take the leap. 


In the Spring of 2020, they teamed up to create what is now known as Soka Media. With ‘OK’ still holding firm in the middle, they constantly remind themself that it is those you surround yourself with that define you. Thus Saraka, O’Connor, Kitchings and Albany was born.
