Writer/director Chell Stephen was raised in Toronto on healthy doses of music videos, The X-Files and teen dance movies - influences which shaped her debut short film CRYSTAL (SXSW, Vimeo Staff Pick) a dark comedy about a be-spandexed 17-year-old jerk. Its follow up, Shauna is a Liar, is
based on a true story from Chell's youth and features poppy camp visuals, a dash of surreal, plus an earnest beating heart at the center- aka Chell's wheelhouse.
Chell studied film and audio production Portland, ME before completing her M.A in Television-Radio-Film at Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communication. Her music video work has been featured on Beavis and Butthead, MTV2, The Fader and RollingStone.com.
Chell is a Sundance Fellow selected to participate in the 2017 New Voices Episodic Short Form Lab 2017 with her series, Kidnapping Brihanna. She also directs fashion and music content for global brands with production family Think/Feel, and presently reps the motherland from "fourth largest Canadian city," Los Angeles.
