Kevin Stevens is a Wellington producer who began by working with special makeup effects and visual effects. He ran sales companies before working with director Jason Stutter on a run of quirky Careful with that... short films. Stevens was a producer on Careful with that Crossbow and feature comedy Edwin: My Life as a Koont, which he also co-wrote. In 2015 the pair collaborated on haunted house tale The Dead Room.
My first visual effect on my first film was stabbing a screwdriver through a vampire’s forehead — how could I not fall in love with filmmaking? Twenty years later I am working behind the scenes rather than crouched under the lens with syringes and tubes filled with stage blood. But I still love making films. Kevin Stevens
