"After seeing Mule Skinner Blues, we hired Stephen to direct Source of Pride: the Making of Pride and Glory because of his ability to tell complex stories with a unique and artful style. We also knew he would commit himself 110% to the project and stay on budget.  His easy-going approach, sense of humor and sincerity put the actors and me at ease.  He's intuitively adept at capturing powerful moments as they unfold. We were extremely happy with the poignant film that he delivered."

"Stephen led our project with tremendous passion, integrity, and dedication. His inspired vision made us understand our own organization better, as he challenged us to contemplate what we wanted to say about ourselves.  Because of the way in which he orchestrated the project, we found ourselves involved in a process that we wished would never end. How often does that happen?"
