Stephan Knight has been named a professional in his profound, complex and challenging sector of work, film production. Spanning nearly over 8 years his depth of knowledge, experience and amount of camera equipment has only grown to the greatest of heights.
After leaving his full time Video Producer position at Defected Records he has gone onto film and edit music videos, promos, adverts, and live events for TV broadcasters, major record labels and other well known brands. Yet Stephan believes he is only at the beginning of his career.
He has recently been called the ‘king of festivals’ on a live Sony Pro show where he was being interviewed by Hersha Patel. Subsequently being invited back for a live stream Q&A from the public.
His work so far has spanned over four continents, working with brands such as Bentley, MTV, RedBull, Channel4, BBC, Esquire, Tommy Hilfiger, Nokia, Audi, VEVO, Beats By Dre, and many more.
Working with such powerful companies brings working with amazing talent. He has shared many rooms, sets and stages with the likes of Anthony Joshua, Ellie Goulding, Anne-Marie, Rag’n’Bone Man, James Blake, and Liam Gallagher.
His title the ‘king of festivals’ came from his realisation of the extensive list of festivals and live music events he has been able to document all around Europe in the last two years of being freelance; Snowbombing, SW4, Boomtown, Roskilde, Lovebox, Wilderness, Festival No6, & most recently Tomorrowland to name a few.
It’s clear to say his work is very much fuelled from the music industry, but on the odd occasion he will endeavour his skill set. Diving into projects with political, thought provoking and just simply beautiful cinematography. This has allowed him to connect and build special relationships with people not necessarily from his normal surroundings.
He filmed and edited a short film titled #OMGshesbald which was recognised by fashion magazine,DAZED and most recently has worked with artist IggyLDN on producing his next film Fatherhood.
Spending most of his life so far behind the camera, Stephan has recently put himself in front, sharing his techniques, equipment and advise to the extensive audience of YouTube alongisde being recognised as a Sony Pro Europe ambassador taking part in presenting on a 2 part Sony Pro Show and finally as an early adopter to technology you will always have an up-to-date Instagram feed post or story on adventures on set... follow him @stephanknight_ .
