Steve is a multi-award winning director working in both the live action and animated mediums. He’s best known for his ability to write and direct stories that shimmer with a bittersweet sensibility and razor sharp humour.
Starting out in animation, Steve created history with his 2007 cult hit ‘An Imaginary Life’, which became the first ever animated film to win the world’s largest short film festival – Tropfest. Since then, Steve has been asked to write and direct the 2008, 2010 and 2011 Tropfest trailers.
Steve’s plaudits include numerous awards and screenings both locally and overseas. In 2008 he picked up the AFI award for Best Animated Short Film with ‘Dog With Electric Collar’. 2009 saw Steve gain the rare honour to be featured in the SHOTS Directors to Watch in Australasia, while in 2011 he won another Tropfest award, this time in the Mobile Masterpieces category, for his short film ‘Following’, shot entirely on his iPhone.
To cap it all off, Steve was recently handpicked by comedy legends Peter Farrelly (of the Farrelly Bros) and Charles B. Wessler to be a part of the Hollywood feature film ‘Movie 43’, writing and directing the live action short film ‘The Apprentice’, starring up-and-coming US star Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation). Due to the highly taboo subject matter, Steve’s controversial short was pulled from the theatrical release of Movie 43, however it can be seen on the upcoming DVD.View Music Videos
