Meet Gary Belcher
COW Leaders : Gary BelcherCreative COW Contributing Editor
Gary Belchér is the owner and principal producer, director, DP, and editor for 56squared Productions -- a national, and internationally, focused production company. Beyond the palette of commercials, corporate videos, training videos, etc., are projects that include the production and distribution of award winning educational media for medical facilities across the United States. Clients include some of the top 100 hospitals in the United States.
Original content is the rule at 56squared Productions. When things are running on all cylinders, pursuing the development of features, shorts, television series, and other multimedia projects occupy the bulk of the non-billable hours.
Gary is an award winning producer and director whose story really began in the mid 70s -- as a professional still photographer. Gary worked extensively with 35mm, as well as medium and large film formats. Whether corporate, still life, tabletop, executive portraits, or landscapes, he employed his enthusiasm and love of painting with light to each project. As an Ansel Adams devotee, the zone system was a constant companion and reminder of the skill needed to satisfy critical clients.
Gary has also acted professionally and received his Screen Actors Guild card in the mid 80s. When he made the leap to director / producer, he swore he would be an “actor’s director.” Something he, and most of his fellow actors, could always spot, and appreciate.
