Stephen Di Gravio

"People cry when onions happen."

Born and raised in Newcastle, NSW. Stephen initially struggled to find opportunities to study filmmaking. Growing up making childhood films with his family, however, had cemented in him a life-long passion for storytelling.

Stephen would move to Melbourne where he would study at both Swinburne University of Technology and The Victorian College of the Arts. Here he obtained both a foundational education on filmmaking and an exorbitant amount of student debt.

A life long lover of speculative fiction, Stephen is an emerging filmmaker with a desire to tell authentic Australian stories that engage and challenge audiences while also allowing him to one day pay off his ever-increasing debt to the ATO.
