Believe’s primary focus is creating entertainment that affects change. My co-founder Ryan Gielen started out as an independent filmmaker and I started out as an actor. He had award-winning films in festivals around the world. I was performing in national commercials and off-Broadway. But we never really felt fulfilled. We wanted to take the art we loved and use it to improve lives, to make the work about more than ourselves. Over a meal and a few drinks I shared the story of losing my brother, Adam, to hemophilia. Within a few months we were working together to reach young people like Adam through educational comedy, and our webseries Stop the Bleeding! was born. We parlayed the success of the web series to pitch other impactful projects aimed at varying demos, and today our work in the health space is broad, deep and diverse. Please click around, and reach out with questions. We would love to help bring your educational and inspirational messages to the world.
