Not Sure Where To Start?

Kevin Svenkeson 2018 - Filmmaker

“I want to thank Chris and Stephanie for pushing me off the ledge and into the film making world. The Documentary Life gave me the inspiration and confidence to get on with making my film and forced me to ask myself - "if not now, when?" I now have a completed feature length film, and can honestly say I am living 'My Documentary Life'”

Kevin Svenkeson, Doc Filmmaker

Hi there! We're Chris and Stephanie.


We have taken our background of over 25 years in the commercial, narrative feature film and documentary worlds, our experiences living and working throughout the world in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia and our lifestyle which involves juggling finances - personal and film, raising children and being conscious consumers and combined that with our drive to help and support other filmmakers to make their best documentary film's.

All of this led us to create, and champion, the concept of leading The Documentary Life and helping others to lead theirs.
