EDITING HAS COMMENCED, STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES

The Collaboration:

Director Ben Leonberg is a deep-south Jersey-ian, a whitewater raft guide, and a former D1-athlete.  Scott Riehs is an NYC based producer, a graduate of NYU’s Experimental Theatre Wing, and one the co-creators of the new field sport Circle Rules Football.  Both happen to be Eagles Scouts.  Ben and Scott met during their first semester at Columbia University’s MFA film program.  After producing each other’s first films at Columbia it became clear to both that they would be logical complements to each other’s talents.  The duo teamed up in the fall of 2013 to begin developing Bears Discover Fire.  Read more about them and the rest of the Bears Discover Fire team at the Team Page and see more of their collaborations here: www.benleonberg.com
