Here's me celebrating after finishing post-production on the new movie I've written and directed called Fighting With My Family. It's a true story about a family of wrestlers from Norwich, England. Very excited for you to see the final film later in 2018. I'll upload more details and info here over the coming months. For now, enjoy the back of my head. And Happy New Year -- love Stephen
