Gina Carey is one of a kind, making a name and thriving in an industry that has been declared as difficult for women, especially those of black origin, to be successful. Despite all the odds, black women have worked very hard in filmmaking over the last century making a remarkable impact. Even though they have done so much, their efforts have been undermined.
Carey has however gone against the grain, working to ensure that women of any race in the filmmaking sector grow beyond limits. She made history as the first female filmmaker of African American origin in Palm Spring. She has been through a lot of challenges but her determination to hit success was undaunted. According to her, her best quote is “weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.”
Her style ranges from poetry to religion to romantic and daring and it has earned her several accolades. She focuses her work on creating films that are out of the ordinary which connects people to their faith, family, and struggles. She was born in Chicago and has impacted lives through her music all her life. Her songs have top charts both in the US and UK working with several producers and artists.
Her first feature film captured a wide audience and also brought her so much recognition, though the movie began as an amateur job. She started out as a self-taught filmmaker having no plan to be famous but she fell in love with making movies in 2016 after she filmed her first movie titled “The Untitled.” The movie came out blurry but she saw it as a way to get better learning from her mistakes.
She is referred to as the “Mother Theresa of the film industry” as she has provided help to many in the industry and is seen as the backbone of future acts. Carey believes that hard work and consistency are the keys to success in the industry.
