Genéa Gaudet is an award-winning documentary and music video director, editor, and camera woman. Based in Los Angeles, Genéa (pronounced Jenaya) explores gender, memory, relationships, and sexuality in her work. Recently she’s been working on 16mm and 8mm film and experimenting with analog video formats.
Her first short documentary, Elder, recalls the experience of a Mormon man who became a missionary in Italy during the 70s and fell in love with a Communist man. It premiered at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival and was a selection for the Emmy award-winning New York Times Op-Docs series. It won a jury prize for Best Short Documentary at the Napa Valley Film Festival. Her second film, Second to None, is a branded-content short about Isabella and Margaux Isaksen – two sisters vying for an Olympic slot on the U.S. Pentathlon Team. It was featured on ESPN in 2016.
Genéa’s music video Game to Lose for indie-folk supergroup I’m With Her is featured on Rolling Stone, and aggregating on Variety, The Guardian, JamBase and Daily Motion. Additionally, she has filmed music videos, short documentaries and promotionals for Steve Martin, Andrew Bird, Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn, the Violent Femmes, The Record Company, and Lindsey Sterling.
Currently Genéa is in post-production on a film called 5 Days – an intimate portrait of a man who faces a five-day trial and 30 years in prison for child molestation.
Genéa is a union editor on the roster for the IATSE 700 Editors Guild. Her latest TV series is the Emmy-nominated Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath on A&E.
Genéa grew up in Canada and works through her production company, Girlfight Pictures. In addition to professional responsibilities, she is the Director of Workshops for the Los Angeles branch of The Video Consortium. She is a former roller derby player who somehow raised the most amazing daughter in the world.
