Stephen Campanelli, was the first to combine "A" Camera operating and steadicam, and in doing so unlocked an entirely new filmmaking perspective that quickly peaked the interests of some of Hollywood's top directors, including Stephen's boyhood idol, Clint Eastwood. Stephen first joined Clint on the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated BRIDGES OF MAIDSON COUNTY and has remained Clint's most trusted "camera eye" ever since, including Oscar-winning films, MILLION DOLLAR BABY and MYSTIC RIVER, and the Oscar-nominated LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA, GRAN TORINO, AMERICAN SNIPER, THE MULE, and RICHARD JEWELL. Stephen’s talent has been recognized by winning several prestigious awards through his career, and has witnessed six Oscar-winning performances with Clint and on THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI. Stephen is following in the footsteps of a great storytelling director, who has shared with him his vast knowledge, and now with Clint Eastwood's blessing and the admiration of every cast and crew he has worked with, Stephen Campanelli has made the natural leap to the director's chair, having already helmed 3 feature films, MOMENTUM, GRAND ISLE, and the #1 box office Canadian film, INDIAN HORSE, which went on to win over 15 audience international festival awards. Stephen also directed a pilot for Fox, PARADISE INC., and a nationwide Nissan Titan Truck Commercial, and now is ready to breathe life into his next project.
