The Team

Who We Are


Stephanie Adele

Executive Producer

Stephanie Adele is a filmmaker from Raleigh, NC. She has been preparing for a career in entertainment since around the age of 6 when she picked up her first camera. Always the kid borrowing a family member’s camera or disposable 35mm, snapping away at anything catching her eye in any moment. She had no idea then that she had a natural eye and that later turned into a photography career after working in Technology for nearly 10 years. Stephanie’s curiosity and ambition left her open to new experiences and learning new skillsets, which took her to music videos. She secured work with independent and major recording artists such as Fantasia and Missy Elliott; with some projects landing feature articles on and Rolling Stone. In addition to Producing Fantasia’s music video, “Bad Girl,” Stephanie was able to secure a brand deal with Apple/BeatsbyDre. 


Stephanie’s exposure & network grew more with each set, and she received a call for an independent feature film in which she Produced and wore several other hats (i.e., Assistant Director, Art Director, etc.)  As most do in the indie space. This is where she realized film production is her happy space. With her innate attention to detail, organizational skills, combined with creativity it all lead to film to beautifully merge those pieces together. 


Stephanie has now Produced web series and several short films; including multiple film festival award winning short “She Had To Ask,” which is now available on ALLBLK. She has also secured Production Coordinator roles in films and television for major networks as NBC Universal, Lifetime, and BET.
