Taylor Steele @ Bully Pictures
Feature film director
Taylor Steele is an award-winning director and producer, who broke new ground at the young age of seventeen with the relesase of the surf film Momentum. Over the next two decades he went on to direct and produce over forty best-selling titles, starring the world's best surfers and musicians.
Taylor's travel and surf documentaries have garnered numerous awards and accolades. These include a showcase at the National Geographic headquarters and the 2010 Muai Film Festival's prestigious Beacon Award. In addition, his film Castles in the Sky won the audience choice award for Most Visuaion Documentary.
Taylor strives to make films that in his words, "evoke the feeling of a memory, yet have the sense that they're happening right now." That sensibility is imprinted on all of his work, from his cutting-edge surf films to his recent spots for Corona, Pacifico, and HP. For Taylor, capturing any lifestyle driving film is about finding both the honest and beauty of that world. It's that aesthetic which made his move into advertising a seamless transition.
He now focuses on commercial directing while continuing to develop and produce feature films.
