導演簡歷

史蒂芬坎柏奈力踏入電影圈的第一份工作是操作攝影機穩定器Stedicam的攝影師,當時在加拿大很少這方面的人才,後來他變成眾人指定的合作對象。他是第一個結合主要場景拍攝以及Stedicam拍攝的攝影師,從而開創了全新的電影製作視角,馬上引來許多好萊塢頂級導演的興趣,其中包括了克林伊斯威特,史蒂芬坎柏奈力的童年偶像。他首度與克林伊斯威特合作的片就是入圍奧斯卡和金球獎的《麥迪遜之橋》,自此以後一直是克林伊斯威特最信任的攝影師。兩人合拍了多部獲得奧斯卡肯定的電影,包括獲獎的《登峰造擊》、《神祕河流》,入圍的《硫磺島的英雄們》、《來自硫磺島的信》,以及賣座的《經典老爺車》、《薩利機長》和《美國狙擊手》。目前兩人剛完成了第21次合作的片子《15:17巴黎列車》。

 

多年來,克林伊斯威特等名導都依賴史蒂芬的專業知識,在拍戲現場將許多關鍵的導演決策交給他。與克林伊斯威特合作23年之後,史蒂芬開玩笑說自己從克林伊斯威特大學畢業了,他已經從大師那裏學到所有的導演訣竅。史蒂芬從這位非常會說故事的導演大師身邊學到了豐富知識,從執導到表演皆然,也了解了演員在攝影機之前要承受的壓力。

拍攝了65部片的史蒂芬坎柏奈力,帶著克林伊斯威特及過往工作人員的祝福,自然而然地坐上導演椅,在2015年執導了《即刻殺機》,由歐嘉柯瑞蘭蔻、詹姆斯柏爾福和摩根費里曼主演。他很榮幸能為大家帶來他的新片《擊出自由夢》。

Director’s Biography

Stephen Campanelli, started his career as a steadicam operator, when it was quite a rarity in Canada, and quickly became the most sought after operator in the country. He was the first to combine “A” Camera operating and steadicam, and in doing so unlocked an entirely new filmmaking perspective that quickly peaked the interests of some of Hollywood's top directors including Stephen's boyhood idol: Clint Eastwood. Stephen first joined Clint on the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated Bridges of Madison County and has remained Clint's most trusted "camera eye" ever since. They have collaborated on the Oscar winning films, Million Dollar Baby and Mystic River, the Oscar nominated Flags of our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, and their successful films Gran Torino, Sully and American Sniper. They have just finished their latest, 21st collaboration,15:17 to Paris.

Clint, and numerous other prominent directors, have entrusted Stephen with crucial on-set directorial decisions, and have relied on his expertise and guidance for many years now. After over 23 years by Clint's side, Stephen jokingly confesses to being a graduate of the "University of Clint Eastwood", having learned all of the maestro's directing secrets. Stephen is following in the footsteps of a great story-telling director, who has shared with him his vast knowledge, not only of directing, but of acting, and what it is like to be an actor before a daunting camera.

Now, with Clint’s blessing and the admiration of every cast and crew he has worked with, on the over 65 motion pictures listed in his resume, Stephen Campanelli has made the natural leap to the director's chair, having helmed two motion pictures, Momentum (2015), starring Olga Kurylenko, James Purefoy and Morgan Freeman. He is proud and honoured to present to you, his latest feature film, Indian Horse.

Reviews:

  • “Cox is a wonder to watch, and seeing him in this gentle, vulnerable role, also spouting folk tales  and seductions in ancient Scottish Gaelic, is a treat.“ Los Angeles Times
  • “The balance of laughter and tears is perfect.“ Mad About Movies
  • “Indian Horse” is a haunting tale tinged by a pervasive sadness. Told in three acts, it covers events in Saul’s life from the late 1950s through the 1970s. The three actors who portray Saul – Sladen Peltier at 6, Forrest Goodluck at 15, and Ajuawak Kapashesit at 22 – present a seamless transition between the acts.
