The Man behind the Films

Gadi Leshem.

Everybody knows him as a businessman, but not everyone knows that he’s also the man behind short documentary films such as Four Weeks in May, T.E.A.M.W.O.R.K. and more.

Yes, besides dabbling in various kinds of businesses, Gadi Leshem also played a part in a number of documentary films by Bizazz Media. His role: executive producer.

Bizazz Media is a California-based company which “produces motivational, training and corporate imaging DVDs.” And since we’re talking about motivational, we might as well talk about one of the documentaries Leshem produced: “CDCR Overview: Where Do You Fit In?”

All It Takes is Pride. And Strength. And Compassion. And Integrity

Have you ever dreamt of becoming a corrections and rehabilitation officer? If not, you might reconsider after watching the film on CDCR that Gadi Leshem produced. CDCR stands for California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, and the documentary “Where Do You Fit In?” centers on what it takes to have the “greatest entry level job in California.”

As the film states, pride, strength, compassion and integrity are the key qualities you need to become an officer. Gadi Leshem’s film shows the daily activities of the officers—from trainings to counseling sessions with the inmates. As you get deeper into the documentary, you’ll see that being an officer is more than being a bad ass with loads of guts or being a man, for that matter. Rather, it’s about wanting to effect change (regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman)—both to the society and the offenders, some of which are youth. Now, who wouldn’t want that kind of job, right?
