Down the road I will have done the most craziest thing ever and will write a book about it that will be turned into a movie that will make boat loads of money and win at least two oscars. So let it be written, so let it be done.
As for the past, I started dancing and acting at age 10. Quit dance at age 20 and continued to act after moving from Seattle to NYC. Had long hair so I got cast as a groupy on a tour bus for Miller Genuine Draft which go me my SAG card back in '90. Was also cast as keyboardist for George Michael's band in a Diet Pepsi commercial shot on stage with huge live audience at Madison Square Garden. That was tons of fun having so many screaming young girls thinking I was really in the band. He he. But I digress and it was also a long time ago. Since then I've been doing little things here and there. I actually had the lead roll in an independent feature a couple of years ago. I wrote and directed a few things. I think I work pretty well under pressure. I'm not sure why, I just do. Anyways, my acting website is www.stian.com
Here is my YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com/stian222
Lots of serious and goofy stuff there.
If you are checking out my YouTube page for the Ford Fiesta Challenge I collaborated on "Indian Giver" (acted as well), "Crestfallen" (part 2 is already uploaded here),
But I Directed, Edited and did sound for "Frying Pan".(can't upload here cause it's 18 min.)
As for experience on set, did I mention that I have been a Key Grip/Rigging Grip/Dolly Grip/Gaffer and Camera Operator for over 24 years in the New York area? Well it's true. I mostly did commercials but I did do a few feature films. You can see my credit as Key Grip on "Two Girls and a Guy" with Robert Downey Jr. and Heather Graham ('98) Graham was so cool and still unknown at the time.
I was also the NY Key Grip for "Art of War" with Wesley Snipes. Most recently I was the dolly grip for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th Anniversary at MSG and Dolly Grip for SNL's digital short "Boombox" with Julian Casablancas and Andy Samberg. My main client for most of my years as a Key Grip was HBO so I've worked with a very long list of huge stars. I don't usually like to drop names or anything cause what does it have to do with me? Nothing really. I just need to keep working on cool stuff with cool people and maybe someday I'll be chillin in the "Green Room". Thanks for looking. Cheers, Stian
