Mini Bio (1)

Steven Scaffidi is an award-winning and longtime writer, producer, director for film and television. Steven is passionate about telling stories about the underdog overcoming the odds and realizing their dreams. His body of work includes the award-winning and controversial film "Execution", which was screened coast to coast theatrically and by invitation of top universities across America and in the United Kingdom; "Forgotten On The Bayou", released nationally on prime-time network television and winner of the prestigious Humanitarian Vision Award; and his dramatic documentary and Academy Awards finalist, "The People's Story: The Devastation of Central America".

Over his career Steven has penned more than a dozen original screenplays in addition to a book and stageplay about the New Orleans Saints entitled "Ain't Dat Super!". The comedy about the Saints winning their first Super Bowl was written before that magical season even began and drew a crowd of over 5,000 passionate Who Dat fans on opening weekend. In 2015, Steven was searching for his next adventure when he was introduced to the New Orleans Mission as a venue for his new music series, "Hit Me America", where the audience participates in writing a song with top musicians and songwriters. This unique jam session gave birth to "Hard Times Don't Hit Me No More", an inspirational blues song that was co-written with the help of over 100 homeless audience members and considered for a Grammy in 2016. This unforgettable experience opened Steven's eyes and heart to the Mission and the opportunity to work directly with Mission Disciples on creative projects.

It didn't take long for Steven to collaborate with Mission Director David Bottner to form Mission Media Productions which gives homeless men and women the opportunity to work on actual films, television shows and other creative projects. When David introduced Steven to Johnny Lonardo, "Desperate Reality: Facing the Truth" took on a life of its own and found its way to the #1 radio station in the Gulf South.
