IN PRODUCTION: The Gordon Hunt Documentary Project


By Roger Bridges, Director/Producer

MENTOR aka THE GORDON HUNT DOCUMENTARY PROJECT is an exploration into the life and times of little-known director and acting coach Gordon Hunt and his personal influence on countless individuals, including some of the heavyweights of the entertainment industry. The story of Gordon Hunt is a combination of RUDY (Hunt from childhood was always small in stature) and ROCKY, an underdog searching for relevance and meaning in his life. From his mother’s death at age 4 to his struggles along the way with various life trials, Mr. Hunt, at age 84 has persevered and survived, continuing not only to make his mark as an award winning director and respected acting coach, but more importantly continuing to guide and direct the paths of hundreds of would be actors, directors and other professionals in and around the entertainment industry. Oscar-winning actress Helen Hunt, ER’s Anthony Edwards, Breaking Bad’s Jonathan Banks, casting director Jeff Greenberg (Modern Family) and writer/producer Nat Bernstein (Doogie Howser, Ally McBeal) among others share stories of Gordon’s impact on their lives and why they credit him for much of their success inside and outside of “the business”. This story, while illuminating the commitment of one individual to help others despite his own struggles, will encourage and inspire, reminding audiences that no matter the cards we’ve been dealt, every single one of us has the POWER — the POWER to overcome any obstacle, the POWER to achieve our dreams, and the POWER to help others realize their own.
