At an early age Stephen decided he wanted to work behind the camera and direct. Between 2006 and 2009, he studied Film and TV Production at York St. John.
Upon graduating Stephen, won the Yorkshire Television award for Outstanding Academic Achievement. Soon after, Stephen won a Raindance TV Youtube audience award for The Big Lunch Competition.
Over the next few years, he directed several shorts including Big Al which was nominated for a Golden Trellick at Portobello Film Festival, and Vending which has performed at festivals all around the world. Stephen directed his debut feature film on a micro-budget of £2,500.
Nothing Man is now currently pushing for both distribution and festival screenings.
As well as directing several shorts and the feature, Stephen has enjoyed a prosperous career as an Assistant Director, working on productions including The Crown, The Man Who Knew Infinity and several projects around the world, such as The State which was filmed in Spain and Bleeding Steel which was filmed in Australia.
Unexpected Item is the latest short film directed by Stephen, with a script by Chris Croucher. Stephen was drawn to this project due to its subject matter, which is dealt with in a humbling and heartfelt manor.
Over the last few years Stephen has been honing his skills and applying them to various genres of filmmaking, allowing him to build a portfolio of varying work, which continues to build.
