Matriarch Multimedia was formed in 2007 to act as a film, television & music cooperative. By combining the resources of 10 companies we were able as a collective to procure funding, distribution and a range of projects in various genres including but not limited too; Hip-Hop, Latin, Reality Television and motion pictures. Matriarch's founder and CEO Cassandra Cooper states "It made fiscal sense to pool our creative resources to reach one common goal. CONTENT. We cannot do 10 projects simultaneously on our own but our team certainly can. The major studios run on the same principal so why not us?"
