PRODUCER, WRITER, DIRECTOR, BODYBUILDER, BUSINESSMAN

-Interviewed Professor Dr. Jordan B. Peterson ("The most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now." - New York Times) in one of the highest praised interviews on YouTube:  "Great conversation James! you have raised so many important questions. I enjoyed listening to you as much as to Dr. Peterson. It is incredibly inspiring to see there are some amazing thinkers out there not only at universities. I believe you are doing a very important job by spreading the word of Dr. Peterson. Thank you! (and I do agree with everything you said:)" and "This is by far the best interview or discussion I've seen.  This is the way you interview a smart clinical psychologist.  He's a listener and a conversationalist. James has obviously integrated the Doctor's material.  His questions and comments show it.".

ABOUT JAMES HERGOTT


James Hergott’s lifelong passion for storytelling, combined with his vast experience as a filmmaker, writer, director, producer, creative consultant and bodybuilder, culminated into the Radical Body Transformations documentary series and fitness/weight-loss movement. Seasons 1 and 2 have been released via Google Play, Apple TV and Amazon Prime in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand and is now filming its third season as the RBT fitness movement gains new worldwide participants and momentum each day. 


His first feature film, All That I Need, debuted at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2005 and secured a limited theatrical release with Regal Entertainment Group. The film gained critical acclaim, and symbolized the moment in which Hergott was recognized as a ‘filmmaker to watch’. The San Antonio Express News commended Hergott for ‘showcasing gumption and creative sleight of hand, sure to take him further as a director and writer’.


Off the back of his Cannes success, from 2005 to 2007 Hergott served as president of publicly traded Beverly Hills entertainment production and distribution company, Imperia Entertainment.  Under James’ management, Imperia produced a number of multi-million dollar films and television entities including Say It In Russian, a film starring Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway with a budget of $5 million.


In 2008, Hergott wrote, directed and produced the MMA reality show MMA Worldwide which was distributed nationally on Mark Cuban's HDNET (now AXS TV).  Gaining an insight into the world of MMA inspired James to learn more, and to share social awareness of the sport.  This brought him to Iraq, in which he produced a documentary about the first ever MMA Fights in Iraq, titled A Fight For The Troops. This documentary film was extremely successful, and James was awarded a Greywolf Medal by the US Army for his contribution to sharing valuable and engaging content that had largely been dismissed by mainstream media.


In 2010 he headed back to Canada where he wrote and executive produced a documentary feature film focussed on UFC Champion, George St.Pierre, entitled, The Striking Truth, which was distributed globally.


Due to his success in film, James sought to combine his work with his passion for fitness.  After winning national awards in bodybuilding for the Canadian Physique Alliance (CPA) and competing in the IFBB World Qualifiers, in 2013 James was given the opportunity to work as Business Director and Creative Consultant for the multi-award winning documentary Generation Iron. The film has become the number one sports/fitness film in the world.
 

In 2015, James independently founded Radical Body Transformations, an inspiring documentary series. It features people from all walks of life who are on a weight loss and fitness journey to better their lives both mentally and physically and was distributed by Amazon Prime in more than 3 continents.  


In 2019, Hergott joined forces with New York real estate moguls Anthony Lolli and Carols Angelucci , after Lolli had tremendous success with his own ultimate radical body transformation. Working as partners, the three  are expanding the current docudrama series into a full length feature Documentary, From Fat Lolli to 6 Pack Lolli,  in addition to creating an inspiring global online fitness community and brand.
