PC: Tell us about your latest film projects?
Steve: I’ve completed two film project. My first major feature film that I just completed filming is Blood Vessel by Justin Dix, appearing alongside Alyssa Southerland (Vikings, The Mist), Robert Taylor (Longmire, The Matrix, Focus), and Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek, These Final Hours).
I just released my film Hell’s Kitchen, which just received its global premiere this year at one of the world’s top 20 film festivals – L.A. Shorts International Film Festival, an Oscar, BAFTA and Canadian Film Award qualifier. It also thrilled audiences at Golden Door International Film Festival, a Movie Maker Magazine world top 50 film festival where it was nominated for both Best Film and Best Actor. Hell’s Kitchen is Carlito’s Way meets Donnie Brasco and is set in New York, 1978. We shot 17 minutes of the feature film as a short proof of concept to raise awareness prior to the feature. This was the same path taken by several filmmakers such as Whiplash, Saw, District 9, Sin City, and Boogie Nights. All these films were released as a proof of concept in a short format that extended to a feature, launching the career of many directors and several actors. Our next step in 2022 is to shoot the remainder of the film.
