Stephen De Villiers
Co-Founder + Creative Director + Managing Creative
I make moving pictures, move people.
I’ve been a filmmaker since I made my first ‘real’ film in 2002 when, back in South Africa, a few friends and I disappeared into the woods and came back with a film about being a teenager, letting go, and monsters (that we patched together with cheap wigs and long plastic nails).
Since then I have been privileged to work all over the world and create films with some of Australia and South Africa’s top actors and creatives while celebrating the opportunity to produce works that are built on a foundation of generosity and seek to move people to think, feel and care a little bit more.
Following my graduation from the directing course at AFTRS in Sydney, I moved to South Australia where I have established and scaled Beyond Content, a production company and creative video agency that strives to tell stories in new and imaginative ways. In addition to running Beyond, I continue to write, direct and produce fiction and non-fiction films of all shapes and sizes.
I’m currently producing 25zero, our climate change feature film and writing Boondock, an Outback neo-noir, both of which we recently received development funding for.
