The British Arrows Awards isone of the most important and highly anticipated events in the industry calendar. These awards set the gold standard we all aim for and I am pleased to have been asked to judge the entries. I look forward to seeing the diverse and exciting work produced over this year by my contemporaries.
After studying film and TV at the London College of Printing, Stephen moved into production at The Molotov Brothers where he quickly progressed to producing music videos. He continued as a producer at the Oil Factory in London making music videos and documentaries.
Stephen also produced iconic TV shows and title sequences for Bob Geldof’s ‘Planet 24’ including the immensely popular The Big Breakfast and TFI Friday.
With 25 years of experience producing commercials and music videos for directors such as Dominic Murphy, Adam Berg, and Peter Webber at Oil Factory LA and HSI and many more, Stephen has picked up various awards along the way, including D&ADs for VW and Use your Vote.
In 2008, he became Head of Production at Stink where he produced a number of successful campaigns including Adam Berg’s Carousel for Philips, which won Cannes Lion Grand Prix.
Park Pictures co-owners, Jackie Kelman Bisbee and renowned director/cinematographer Lance Acord, approached Stephen in 2010 to head up the UK division of US-founded Commercials and Film Production company. Their work has garnered numerous honours, including Cannes Lions, Clios, D&ADs, Andys, AICP and One Show awards as well as Emmy nominations and an Academy Award® for The New Tenants.
Through Park Pictures London, Stephen has overseen several award winning campaigns such as Audi ‘The Swan’, Dulux ‘Colour Love Story’, Royal London and Thomson’s Bear. He continues to create memorable work with directors such as Nathan Price, Tom Tagholm, Terri Timely and Christian & Patrick.
