A.W. Stevenson wrote and directed his debut short film ‘Not with a Bang But a Whimper’ in 2014, while studying for a Masters. The film played at the Fastnet Film Festival and the experience caused him to change his career path towards professional filmmaking.
His second independent short film ‘Man to Man’ premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh, 2017, and was selected for festivals all around Ireland and even internationally, receiving an Audience Award at the Chicago Irish Film Festival as well as the O’Kalem Award for Best Short Film at the Baton Rouge Irish Film Festival. Since then, he has been directing commercials and online content as his primary source of income. As of early 2020, he has completely another two short films- ‘Cut-throat’ and ‘Down the Road’- which are entering their festival run
He is currently writing a feature script, having won a literary bursary award from the Irish Arts Council, and also working freelance as a writer/director/editor, developing commercials and other film projects. His background in production helps facilitate a complete service, from ideation to execution, and he is delighted to be a regular collaborator with Ad Fuel, H2 Films, and BBDO Dublin, as well as Widescreen, Avondale Studios, and Promenade Post.
