Fresh out of film school Simone Stock worked her way up from onset caterer to assisting Hollywood pros on features shot in her hometown of Toronto.
Mentors like Reginald Hudlin (Django Unchained), Anne Bancroft (The Graduate), Liam Neeson (Taken), and Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies) showed Simone the ropes. But it was director Claudia Weill (Girlfriends) who urged Simone to write.
TIFF nominated Simone for comedy short Motown Morning (made at AFI) for Best Short. Sci-fi short Iris screened Cannes, was broadcast on TMN and won awards around the world.
Simone directed 2nd Unit on Spottiswoode features The Journey Home, Shake Hands With the Devil, The Children of Huang Shi and A Streetcat Named Bob.
Spottiswoode partnered with Simone and long-time collaborator Misha Skoric on Sci-Fi feature STARLIGHT. The passion project is the story of a mother facing an impossible choice – letting her non-verbal son leave Earth with the aliens he can effortlessly talk to, or stay home safe, but silent.

SciFi story about a feisty single mother in the north who faces the choice of a life time, allow her non-verbal teenage son to travel through space with aliens he can effortlessly talk to, or stay home safe... but silent.
