Stephen Barnett has worked in Theatre, Acting, Photography, Storytelling, Playwriting, Screenwriting, Interior & Furniture Design, Construction, Sculpture, and the Cinema Arts throughout his professional career because these multiple disciplinary experiences help produce better storytelling.
He recently graduated with a Master's in Gender, Sexuality, and Cinema Theory from the CUNY Graduate Center shortly after a CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies in Theatre and Cinema production.
Prior to that, he studied acting from Constantin Stanislavski, the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, the Herbert Berghof Studio, Uta Hagen, and Sanford Meisner.
Consequently, he has currently produced a filmography of twenty films of varied budget, length, cast, crew, content, and accolades.
As well, his personal time is spent working as a 2&3-dimensional artist. In the vernacular of "Art-speak," these works are described as: Mixed-Media Structural Assemblages, but he refers to them as: Photography Sculptures. These works relate the B/W image(s) with gestures of wood, found objects, and a touch of color to accentuate a line or to highlight. The purpose and pleasure he seeks to achieve is a symbiotic balance of beauty found in the "ugly" of trash; a sense of pride from that which is shamed as discarded.
