Justin Stephenson is a filmmaker and moving image designer.

With Gord Downie and Jeff Lemire, Stephenson recently completed adapting The Secret Path to animation as the animation director and editor for the film. It tells the true story of Chanie Wenjack, a twelve-year-old boy who escaped from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School near Kenora, Ontario. While attempting to walk 600 kilometres home to Ogaki Post, Chanie died on October 22, 1966.

In 2015 he released The Complete Works based on Canadian avant-garde author and poet, bpNichol.

Justin’s work focuses on materialities – the physical qualities of subjects and media. For example, the ink, paper and letterforms used in his title work for David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, in which the narrative is staged against handwritten letters.

Justin also directs and designs sequences for television, commercials, interactive media, and live performance. He created the video design and projections for Fujuwara Dance Inventions’ production of Christian Bök’s Eunoia, and the animation design for the 2015 remounting of Robert Lepage’s Erwartung and Bluebeard’s Castle with The Canadian Opera Company.

Other film title works include Atom Egoyan’s Remember; Nathan Morlando’s Mean Dreams and Edwin Boyd; and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, and Cosmopolis.
