Steven Bratter

As a major Hollywood Studio Executive Producer and screenwriter (WGAw), Steven Bratter has had over 25 years experience in the industry working with some of the biggest names in show business. Steven John Bratter was born on March 15, 1962 in St. Paul, Minnesota, son of a venture capitalist and entrepreneur. Before he was ten years old, Steven's father decided to take the entire family, his mother, sister, and brother, around the world to gain first-hand knowledge of other people, places, cultures, and customs. They visited 55 countries and their trip was covered by the news. Here is where Steven's creative influences began to take root. From the Taj Mahal to the Pyramids to the Greek Islands, Steven wrote about his adventures in his daily diaries. Experiencing these cultures firsthand provided him with a broader scope of how life and its traditions are lived elsewhere and deepened his perceptions as he grew older.

Between the ages of 10, 11, and 12, Steven won the prestigious Minnesota State Piano Competition and was rewarded with performances at the renowned Scott Hall and Orchestra Hall, playing to an audience that rewarded him with a standing ovation. Steven had a rather unconventional bar mitzvah -- he performed "Rhapsody in Blue" on the synagogue's stage after the ceremony. Steven started composing his own symphonies on the piano, and his family friend Steven Greenberg (writer of the song "Funkytown") taught the younger Steven how to compose his first contemporary songs as well. Starting junior high school, Steven began first with photography, which then led to his interest in filmmaking. By the end of seventh grade, he was animating Claymation films using Playdoh, then progressed to live action 8 mm films by recruiting family and friends.

Steven also had a fascination with magic, which he demonstrated in his high school talent shows with some of Houdini's most famous escape tricks alongside his good friend Jim Sewell (now head of James Sewell ballet).

Before the age of 18, Steven received his black belt in Martial Arts and placed fourth in the Mid-America Diamond Nationals overall Men's Weapons Competition; in addition, he was a student of Ninjutsu master Clifford Moody. Later, Steven would study under Master Lee and his friend Shihan Petit ("Subzero" of "Mortal Kombat").

After graduating from high school, Steven was accepted in the USC/Universal Pictures Summer Program. This program consisted of one day classes at the USC film school, making films and then meeting with successful directors and producers to discuss the work on the Universal lot. Steven attended the program with best friend Carlton Calvin ( nephew of Melvin Calvin, nobel laureate for the discovery of photosynthesis). Carlton is now president of Razor Scooters.

Returning home, Steven began his freshman year at the University of Minnesota. Since the school's film program at the time emphasized the mechanics of filmmaking rather than storytelling, Steven decided to receive a more renaissance education by majoring in History with a minor in Philosophy, taking his elective courses in film.

He attended the University of Paris-Sorbonne to study art history at the world famous Louvre Museum, philosophy at the Sorbonne, and film at the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris. As a foreign exchange student, Steven lived with filmmaker Uziel Peres (nephew of Shimon Peres, former Prime Minister and now current President of Israel). Steven graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelors of Arts in History.

Steven began his film career as an Assistant to the Producers and made a cameo appearance in S.E. Hinton's "That Was Then, This is Now", starring Emilio Estevez, Craig Sheffer ("A River Runs Through It"), and Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman ("Driving Miss Daisy"). Steven and Craig would later make a film with another close friend, Writer/Producer/Director and St. Louis Ram's Owner, Dale "Chip" Rosenbloom ("Shiloh", "Fuel").

Steven began his producing career by launching a music video featuring Taja Sevelle signed by Prince and Warner Brothers. The song "Love Is Contagious" became a top ten single in London and received heavy rotation on MTV.

Steven had a chance to witness Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, and Michael Jackson at work on "Captain Neo and the Space Knights". Steven's friends were shooting "Space Camp" on the soundstage next door, and Steven made an arrangement with Michael Jackson regarding Jackson's entering the full-blown space ship on Space Camp set. Michael in turn allowed Steven to go on his set. Lucas was directing in the trailer and he said his favorite position on the movie set was Executive Producer. Steven took his advice to heart and went on to Executive Produce "Instant Karma". Steven also did a favor for young Joaquin Phoenix by arranging a picture for the boy with Michael Jackson. Since then, Steven has made several independent features, which received critical acclaim. In 1990, Steven executive produced "Instant Karma", starring Craig Sheffer, David Cassidy, Orson Bean, Chelsea Noble, and Annette Sinclair. Steven and Craig got a bungalow on the Raleigh Studios lot next to Kevin Costner while filming the movie. Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times declared the feature to have "substance and rigor and unfolds with a wit and insight that holds attention and commands respect." Thomas' observation of the business and those who labor at succeeding in it further said, "There are countless young people trying to make their mark in the motion picture and television industries who will identify with the Angst-ridden hero..the filmmakers are off to a solid start on the big screen." The film was sold to MGM/UnitedArtists.

Following "Instant Karma", Steven teamed up with producer Donald Borchers ("Two Moon Junction", "Children of the Corn", "Crimes of Passion") to Executive Produce "Motorama", written by Joseph Minion (writer of Martin Scorcese's "After Hours"), directed by Barry Shils ("Wigstock, the Movie") and starring Drew Barrymore, Flea (of the Red Hot Chili Peppers), Meatloaf, Martha Quinn, Michael J. Pollard, Garrett Morris, and Jordan Christopher Michael. The film was chosen by the Museum of Modern Art, New York to be part of the New Directors/New Films series in March of 1992 and played to sold out screenings. Film critic Stephen Holden of The New York Times declared Steven's film a "streak of fantastical whimsy". He went on to define the theme of the story when he wrote, "Motorama" is a light-hearted pop allegory about the quest for the American Dream {with} a streak of fantastical whimsy." Michael Wilmington of The Los Angeles Times hailed the film as "a tangy little road movie fable-fantasy about the decadence of that super-media American Dream." His review further stated the clarity of the storytelling by saying "throughout the 1980's, movie after movie suggested that the Great American Jackpot was just over the rainbow, that sex, success or revenge were our culture's ultimate crock. That's what "Motorama" is about." In a nod to Steven and his colleagues, he wrote "Just as Gus {the lead character} plays at the games of life and riches, these filmmakers play at the games of filmmaking. They serve up evil and despair with a wink." Lawrence O'Toole of Entertainment Weekly wrote, "it's bizarre as all get-out and at times makes David Lynch look square." The film was released by RCA/Columbia Pictures.

The next independent film Steven made was "Seven and a Match", one of the first feature films shot in High Definition (HD) and starring Heather Donahue ("The Blair Witch Project"), Adam Scott ("The Aviator", "Knocked Up"), Devon Gummersall, Daniel Sauli, Eion Bailey ("Fight Club"), Tina Holmes ("Edge of Seventeen"), and Petra Wright. Indiewire.com recognized the filmmakers themselves as "High Def Pioneers", and stated the film as "one of only a handful of films to be shot in High Definition Digital...a la the upcoming Star Wars prequels...". Variety made a shout out to the filmmakers by describing the film as "firmly set in the American indie tradition of characters trumping plot...adept at crafting distinctly individual characters...both apt and shrewd." Referring to Steven and company, in a separate article, Daily Variety featured a still from the movie, the headlines above reading "Sony, Panavision in step with visionaries".

The first studio film that Steven Executive Produced was "Demolition Man", a Sci-Fi Action blockbuster starring Sylvestor Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Sandra Bullock, and Benjamin Bratt. It went on to set a box office record the weekend of its release. The Hollywood Reporter's headline screamed "'Demolition' blows up record...Estimated $14.5 million makes futuristic film fall's biggest opener" and Variety read "'Demo' Explodes at B.O....Stallone/Snipes starrer sets fall opening record". The other producers on the film were Joel Silver ("Lethal Weapon" films, "Die Hard films, "Predator films", "Matrix films", etc. and the upcoming "Sherlock Holmes") and Howard Kazanjian ("Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi", "Raiders of the Lost Ark"). Steven's Executive Producing partners were Craig Sheffer and Faye Schwab ("The Morning After" directed by Sidney Lumet and starring Jeff Bridges and Jane Fonda, who was nominated for an Academy Award, "Chattahoochee" starring Dennis Hopper and Gary Oldman"). Vincent Canby of the New York Times called the film "a significant artifact of our time..." and Kenneth Turan in the Los Angeles Times wrote "it seems 'Demolition Man' will be testosterone-driven enough to make "Cliffhanger" look like the movie version of 'Remembrance of Things Past'".

In the early to mid 1990's, as tension grew over the global economy, Steven was invited by the CNN International Hour to be the spokesperson on behalf of the film industry in a heated international debate on the Gatt Treaty and the future of tariff trades. His challenger was the French Embassy Cultural Counselor, Michel Lumaux.

After watching the debate, Jack Valenti, then President of the Motion Picture Association of America, wrote Steven, "thanks for upholding the honor of the American motion picture industry. You did a great job of helping educate the world about the importance of the US film and television video industries, as well as of a favorable outcome in the Gatt negotiations." The Senior Vice President of CNN, Gail Evans, wrote Steven, "your comments and insights were greatly appreciated and brought a new understanding to a challenging subject...thank you and we look forward to talking with you in the future."

Steven's first television series, "The Seekers", written with Alan Duncan Ross, was developed for Warner Brothers Television and NBC with Steven serving as Creator/Executive Producer. Steven has developed his original material as a Writer/Producer with names such as Gale Ann Hurd ("Terminator", "Terminator 2", "The Abyss"), Arnold Koppelson ("The Fugitive"), and Academy Award winning Producer Jon Landau ("Titanic", upcoming film "Avatar", just to name a few). Before "Titanic" began, Steven was shooting weapons most weekends with James Cameron, as they had a mutual Secret Service agent that provided protection for Cameron.

Steven just finished writing/producing/directing the Sci-Fi Thriller "First Strike", a feature film written with his childhood friend Phil Perlson and starring his martial arts master Francois Petit ("Subzero" of "Mortal Kombat" fame).

Recently, Steven has signed with Stan Lee's Pow! Entertainment to write, produce, and direct "The Machinist" trilogy. On the screenplay, Stan Lee served as the story editor, and referring to Steve by his nickname, "SuperSteve", that he is looking forward to creating not just "building a franchise, but an empire. Steven will be producing "The Machinist" with Faye Schwab and the living legend Stan Lee ("Spiderman films, X-Men films, The Hulk, Fantastic Four films, Iron Man, and upcoming Iron Man 2, Spider Man 4).

Steven and Faye have currently re-teamed with Warner Brothers to produce a franchise based on the world's most famous private detective: Jay J. Armes, " He is known in Hollywood as the man who rescued Marlon Brando's son, Christian Brando, from a remote jungle. In Steven's words, "Fifty percent James Bond, Fifty percent Robocop, One hundred percent real! The screenplay is currently being written by three time Emmy winner Mitchell Hurwitz and Jeff Rake.
