Thor Halvorssen, Human Rights Activist and Film Wunderkin

The Venezuelan globe trotter, Thor Halvorssen Mendoza, is most well known for his political actions, primarily his activist efforts with the Human Rights Foundation and the Oslo Freedom Forum to combat tyranny the world over. What he is not quite so well known for are his many accomplishments a Hollywood, documentary film producer. Thor Halvorssen first began his film production career in 2006 with the little known documentary film, Hammer & Tickle. The film was a in-depth look at the usage of humor, particularly satire about Communism, during the Soviet Union’s repressive regime. Mr. Halvorssen helped to produce the film and then, in keeping with his highly energetic and work driven character, he moved on to two other movie projects in the very same year, those being, Freedom’s Fury and The Singing Revolution Respectively.

The film, Freedom’s Fury was a documentary focusing upon the Australian 1956 Summer Olympics, specifically telling the tale of the fabled water polo match between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the Republic of Hungary where tensions where so high that one of the Russian players violently struck one of the opposing team members, causing him to bleed and the match to be remembered as the Blood In The Water Match. The other film, The Singing Revolution focused on the plight of the Estonian people during, once again, the Soviet regime, where song was the political weapon of choice. Again, Halvorssen produced both films.

In 2007 Halvorssen produced two films, Sugar Babies and Indoctrinate U, the former focusing on the ethical horrors which have arose around the sugar cane industry, the latter focuses on the manipulation and political theology of modern American education. Over the next couple of years Mr. Halvorssen would go on to produce five more films with his latest being Halo of Stars, which is as yet in post production and is slated for release sometime in 2017.

Arthur Becker, Entrepreneur and Strategist

Arthur Becker is an investor and entrepreneur in the seemingly disparate fields of real estate, biotechnology and information technology. Mr. Becker has been a managing member of Madison Technologies since 1999, according to Bloomberg.

 

In a recent interview with Ideamensch, he detailed how his interest in biotechnology arose, fascinated by the ever-evolving field and the possibilities it held to change people’s lives during his time with ZINIO and NaviSite, choosing to expand his real estate interests after NaviSite was sold in 2011. Motivated at a young age to succeed by his time with the Parks Department of youth home, Becker finds he works best around people he respects, and believes every business should have the clarity and critical thinking to know when to change strategies, goals, and even the people involved if they want to succeed.

 

Past failures, Becker claims, has helped him to learn to avoid making the same mistakes going forward, and he feels that past successes have helped him learn the elements of success. “I have found that my ability to evaluate and assist in the development of the management talent has been a critical factor in any success that I have enjoyed,” Becker said, when asked about his habits for success. When asked what he would recommend for everyone else, he said he doesn’t “have a silver bullet but would say that informed and intelligent tenacity; listening to your colleagues and the market; and staying flexible in the strategy.” http://perezhilton.com/tag/arthur_becker/

 

 

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Becker has been involved in many business ventures, including NaviSite, Zinio, Clearblue Technologies, Vera Wang fashion company, and Atlantic Investors. He has recently been cited as an investor in the startup Kard, a business designed to help consumers use their credit cards to their fullest. He has been involved in the development of a condominium complex in Soho.
