Stephen Bradley studied Law at Trinity College, Dublin, graduating in 1989. He was Assistant Line Producer on MY LEFT FOOT and then worked in Development at Windmill Lane Pictures and Ferndale Films.

 

In 1993 he started Temple Films with producer Ed Guiney and co-produced AILSA (1994, directed by Paddy Breathnach, Winner Best First Film at San Sebastian) and GUILTRIP (1995, directed by Gerry Stembridge, Official Selection at Venice.)

 

In 1994 Stephen began writing and directing with short film REAPER which was selected for Official Competition at Venice. He completed a series of 90 x 1 minute films called BARABBAS for TnaG winning Best Entertainment Series at the Celtic Film Festival in 1997.

In 1998 Stephen wrote and directed his debut feature film, SWEETY BARRETT, starring Brendan Gleeson, Liam Cunningham and Andy Serkis, which was chosen for Official Selection in Toronto and Official Competition in San Sebastian.

 

Following the award-winning short NO, NO, NO (Channel 4) Stephens second feature was BOY EATS GIRL (2005, starring David Leon and Samantha Mumba, which was sold world-wide including US distribution by Lionsgate.)
