The glory of filmmaking for us means to really burn for a project. Add some guts, attach the best talent and crew around and the quotation equals in a combo meal of production value and storytelling, so spicy, energetic and brave that it lights the fire in international audiences. This is the potential we are looking for in every project and idea that comes our way.
What it boils down to is: Got fire?

Christine Guenther grew up in the Bavarian countryside where she talked the neighbour’s kids into playing supporting roles in her first VHS shorts poductions – and their parents into funding them. After studying American literature and linguistics, communication and political sciences in Bamberg, she made an excursion into the enticing wonderland of commercial production. While moving to her now 10year home base – Berlin’s Wild „Mitte“ West – she rediscovered her passion for the narrative, which includes documentary features.
As a freelancing Line Producer / UPM she line-produced Philip Gröning’s THE POLICE OFFICER’S WIFE (Special Jury Prize at the 70th Venice Film Fest), and the Israel shooting block of Pepe Danquarts RUN, BOY, RUN, Connie Walther’s FIDGETY, as well as Burhan Qurbani’s SHAHADA (Berlinale Competition) and most recently Philip Koch’s OUTSIDE THE BOX, Philip Groening’s MY BROTHER ROBERT and Jakob M. Erwa’s THE CENTER OF THE WORLD.
Susan Korda’s short SALOMEA’S NOSE (BERLINALE 2014, Cannes Court Métrage SFC, LA Shorts Fest) marks the beginning of Christine’s independent producing endeavours. With her company FIREGLORY (formerly known as Optasia Film), she is setting up in-house developments and deepening her U.S. connection. In Los Angeles she’s created a lively sandbox, in which filmmakers can get inspired and play with story with her production partner Chevy Chen, whom she met while working on European shooting blocks for USA Network’s COVERT AFFAIRS. Christine and Chevy have moved their respective solo companies under one label and form FIREGLORY PICTURES LLC in LA as the common mothership for transcontinental endeavours

Chevy K. Chen is a native Californian, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently lives in Los Angeles. Before film and television, Chevy studied to be a percussionist and jazz drummer, but recognized his other passion in life; storytelling. He was accepted into the University of Southern California’s school of Cinematic Arts program and emphasized in cinematography and post production sound. After USC, he freelanced and ran an after school production program in Inglewood, CA where he taught basic and post production to children ages 7 to 15.
In 2009, Chevy’s first producing credit was on the full feature documentary, Jealous of the Birds (JOTB), directed by fellow USC alumni, Jordan Bahat. It was accepted at the Sheffield Doc/Fest, Doc NYC, and Rhode Island film festival, winning Best Original Score at Rhode Island. After JOTB, he continued to work with Bahat in various music videos and productions. In 2011, Chevy joined Master Key (MK) Productions as a visual effects producer and assisted on shows Covert Affairs, Justified, Off the Map, and Suits. His ambitions to produce were continued at MK, where he headed the production department and specialized in Foreign Unit Shoots for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Covert Affairs, 12 Monkeys, Royal Pains, and Hero’s Reborn.
At MK, Chevy acted as Senior Vice President and produced in over 20 countries to this date. His international work built an appetite for a transatlantic collaboration, and a common set of tastes and values brought Christine Guenther and him together. From these values and impeccable taste FIREGLORY PICTURES LLC was born.
