Gina Leibrecht // Following The Fire

In this week’s Firebelly interview, Filmmaker Gina Leibrecht talks about being broke, cold calling, and working for free, all in pursuit of her dream of becoming a filmmaker. Gina knew she couldn’t work the typical 9-5 job, it just wasn’t who she was. A true inspiration, Gina is someone who felt that fire in her belly and went for it, no matter what. She’s a documentary filmmaker — a producer, a director, an editor and a grant-writer (and she does everything else in between when it comes to filmmaking).

Academy Award Nominated Documentary Filmmaker // Roko Belic

I first heard the name "Roko Belic" when I was in graduate school in San Francisco. Years before, Belic's directorial documentary debut, Genghis Blues had been a huge hit. It won the Sundance Audience Award and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. I had been working on my graduate thesis film which explored the topic of Happiness, and several people I met throughout my research pointed me in Belic's direction. Eventually our paths crossed when I attended a voice-over recording for his most recent film's narration. For his most recent film, HAPPY, Belic teamed up with Hollywood heavyweight Tom Shadyac (director of Bruce Almighty, Liar, Liar among other films), who executive produced, to direct the feature documentary. HAPPY combines powerful human stories from around the world with cutting edge science to give us a deeper understanding of what makes us ultimately...happy. What I admire most about Belic (besides his outstanding filmmaking) is his steadfast ...
