Christian Movie Connect Episode 63 - Steve Taylor
Singer, songwriter, and film director, Steve Taylor, has had an amazing, diverse career in the entertainment industry. His accomplishments have not only garnered him two Grammy-nominations, but he has also made history as the only recording artist to win the Billboard Music Video Award twice for self-directed music videos. Among Steve’s many credits as a music video director, his best-known is the Francois Truffaut homage he shot in Paris for the Sixpence None The Richer’s hit, “Kiss Me.” Steve’s film, “The Second Chance,” marked his debut as a film director/co-screenwriter which was released by Sony Pictures in 2006. His follow-up feature, “Blue Like Jazz,” is an adaptation of the New York Times bestselling memoir by Donald Miller. Steve is also a key workshop contributor to the National Religious Broadcasters Convention.
In this interview, Taylor talks with CMC host, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker, about his transition from musician to
film director through the making of music videos.
