Stacey Lee is a writer, director and producer born in New Zealand, now living in New York.
She began her career working as a creative director in advertising producing award winning advertising and editorial content for VICE, MTV, Absolut, adidas, Beats by Dre, Levi’s, Spotify and Red Bull Music Academy. Her work has won awards at every major advertising festival including Cannes, Clio, AWARD, Young Guns, Art Director’s Club Berlin and she has been published twice in the D&AD book. In 2012 she left advertising to pursue her passion for documentary full time and won Best Music Documentary for her first film “One Fire Ignites Another” at the New York Independent Film Festival.
Anthony Mathile is a New York based director, editor and sound designer. His film career began on the road making tour documentaries with such humble acts as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, The Police and Genesis. After picking up numerous awards, including a platinum disc from EMI, he felt he’d exhausted the collective gene pool of aging rock stars and settled down in Brooklyn, NY. Since then he continues to develop his own documentaries as well as original content series and music videos for Heineken, Intel, VICE, Beats by Dre and adidas.
