Stephen has been directing fiction and non-fiction films for close to 20 years. His credits include the critically acclaimed BAFTA-nominated feature doc SCOTT WALKER – 30 CENTURY MAN (executive produced by David Bowie), the celebrated cult documentary CINEMANIA, and the platinum-selling STONES IN EXILE, a documentary commissioned by The Rolling Stones, and produced by Oscar-winning producer John Battsek/Passion Pictures, about the making of the Stones’ classic 1972 album “Exile On Main Street” which premiered as a Special Screening in the 2010 Directors Fortnight in Cannes. In 2012, he teamed with Passion Pictures again and Rob Trujillo from Metallica (making his debut as a film producer) on a feature doc about the late, great legend of bass, Jaco Pastorius. Currently in production, again with producer John Battsek, is a documentary about the rock band X Japan, the most successful band in Japanese history making a play for American success with a show at Madison Square Garden.
January 2015 saw the release of a feature documentary Stephen directed for PULSE Films about the biggest-selling boy band of all time, called “Backstreet Boys: Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of.” The film broke iTunes pre-sale records and was a massive fan-favorite the world over.
