Stephen Amis

A graduate of the Swinburne Film and Television School in Melbourne, he established Revolution Pictures, and wrote, produced and directed his first micro-budget feature, the social-realist drama, See Jack Run. Stephen's concern for the environment saw him write, produce and direct a second micro-budget feature, the enviro-comedy, The Alive Tribe. He co-wrote, produced and directed the romantic comedy, The Real Thing, and Virus (short). In 2009, Stephen was selected as one of three producers from Australia to attend Cinemart, the Rotterdam film festival co-production market. He has acted as a cinematographer on more than forty short films, high-end television commercials, network documentaries and several innovative TV series.
