P O G O
Pogo Piggybackers, founded by filmmaker Paolo Monico in 2005, is an award-winning production company based in New York.
We work on advertising projects for all media and collaborate with established production companies in order to turn the agency's vision into a stunning piece of film where aesthetics and storytelling are equally important. In the past 20 years, we have shot more than 150 commercials for clients like Coca-Cola, MTV, Honda, Playstation, Procter & Gamble, Volkswagen, Vodafone and many others. Some of our ads have been featured on Shots Magazine or shortlisted at the Cannes Advertising Film Festival.
We also write and produce our own content: short films, features, TV shows and web series. Our first short film, THE MOTHER, starring Mary Testa, Boris McGiver, Michele Hicks and Sylvia Kauders has been running the Festival circuit for almost 2 years, winning multiple awards. Our recent short "Lacrimosa" starring David Dastmalchian is serving as a proof of concept for a limited series.
Pogo also co-produced "Momma", a short film written and directed by Nacho Arenas, now available on Showtime and "Wonder", a short written by Gabriel Furman and directed by Javier Molina. Wonder is now available on HBO.
We are currently developing a feature script titled THE GOOD FATHER, a new short film and various TV shows for the Italian market.
