Director Biography - Steven Michael Hall


Steve started his path towards film making at a young age. Influenced by a Chuck Norris movie after a bullying incident, Steve was enticed by the world of martial arts and the love of action movies. Over the years, Steve learned to use comedy to diffuse aggressive situations as a means to create a peaceful solution rather than being forced to use his martial arts skills.

After a couple years of owning a video rental store, Steve decided that he could write better scripts than some of the films he was watching. He has since written several movie screenplays over the years experiencing several close encounters in the film industry.

In 2012, Steve decided to take a more independent approach in pursuit of getting his film projects made. Inspired by a film group he had joined, Steve took a stand up comedy routine and his improv quality of comedy and wrote it into a family sitcom pilot called “Me-Steve”. Pilot sample episodes were filmed in 2013 and again in 2015 with a fresh new starter pilot episode slated to be filmed in early 2021.

Steve directed his first adventure feature film "Time Drop" in 2017/2018 and is preparing for distribution options in 2020.

Towards the end of 2018, God gave Steve dreams about the trouble our teens and young adults face and that he would be making powerful movies to reach them, making the movies God wanted him to make.

Steve teamed up with Renevation Church and their young adult ministry for a faith based feature film project called "Renovations - A Place for Hope." This film was given to us by God, who inspired us to write the story, create original music, and moved all the pieces needed into place. We often said God was our executive producer as he provided everything we needed, from the amazing people, the awesome cast, to the dedicated crew and assistants who helped make this project come together.

With God's guidance we have completed the film and music video of our original song for this project. We are preparing for distribution of our feature film to share with the world, giving people hope and changing lives.

As we move forward, Steve plans to write a book on how this film was made and is teaming up again with Chrissy Renee to write the second film in our Renovations film series. We will continue to trust God to open the doors as we move forward. "Renovations - A Time for Redemption" has been filmed and we are presently editing for a November 2022 release .
