Stuart McIntyre is a director known for his reverent approach to filmmaking. With style and verve, he divinely captures the exhilaration and energy within every story, much like his own.
In 2004, Stuart started a post-production company called Bijou Editorial, where he quickly became an award-winning editor for numerous feature films and commercials, until 2008 when his kidneys failed. He persevered through his new lifestyle of being hooked onto a dialysis machine with a smile.
In 2010, Stuart’s brother donated his kidney to him, changing his life forever. Immediately after the surgery, he took a leap of faith, departing the editing company he built to follow his dreams to become a film director. As cliche as it sounds, it’s the truth.
Using his editing background, Stuart quickly rose to prominence for his prowess working with celebrity talent and professional athletes such as Jamie Foxx, Yasiin Bey, Scoot McNairy, James Harden, Lionel Messi, DeAndre Hopkins and Naomi Osaka with high-profile clients such as Apple, adidas, NFL, MGM, Gatorade, Louis Vuitton and many more.
In 2019, he directed his first narrative short ‘Carl’s Motel’ starring Scoot McNairy, which was selected by many international film festivals such as Toronto International Film Festival, Montréal Festival du Nouveau Cinema and the Madrid International Film Festival, where Scoot McNairy won Best Actor.
Stuart is currently based in Los Angeles with various projects in the works. He is developing a documentary about dialysis in America, co-wrote a feature film with French actor Olivier Martinez, that goes into production in the winter of 2022, and with NFL wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, he is also developing an alternative-history TV show called Seeds and a doc-series that follows rookie NFL players through their first season in the NFL
