Social Awareness.



We are the definition of progressive force.  

1159 Studios is a multimedia hub based out of Northern Virginia.  We are dedicated to highlighting stories, events, and people that bring to light the best of urban culture.

1159 Studios' aim is to promote positive action, uncover stories that adversely affect our community, and showcase the factors that will help move the community in the right direction.

Through unbiased media coverage, ground-breaking documentaries, and a host of other provocative content, we are in the process of building a reputation for not just being there when it matters most, but to take the lead.  

We partner with DC Life Magazine and Ripped Radio Network.



1159 Studios formed after DC entrepreneur, Sean Jones joined forces with creative content writer and audio engineer, Moni Pearson. Both decided that they wanted to provide a solution for the lack of balance of urban media representation. 


Sean “SDOT” Jones is a visual artist that specializes in graphic and web design. He has worked on projects with artists such as 50Cent, Wale, Tabi Bonney and Lola Monroe. 


Moni Pearson (“La Doodlebug”) is a multimedia professional that specializes in audio production (10 years experience).  Moni has worked for National Public Radio, Live Nation, The Recording Academy (Grammys), BET, and ESSENCE Magazine, along with celebrity blog outlets where she has conducted many professional interviews with Nas, Sway, Ledisi, The Dream, Mariah Carey, Tia and Tamera Mowry, Michael Ealy, Gabrielle Union, and many others.
