Stella most recently made her directorial debut with critically-acclaimed and 25-time award-winning psychological drama ‘The Critic’, that she also wrote, and produced (under the helm of The Punk Floyd Company, the production company she co-founded with former fashion superagent Jean Gabriel Kauss) in addition to playing the female lead opposite Alan Smyth. The film received critical praise and was most recently named among the five winning films of Amazon Studios’ first All Voices Film Festival (for U.S. filmmakers from underrepresented backgrounds) by a jury that included the co-Head of Movies at Amazon Studios (Julie Rapaport), Head of Diversity at Amazon Studios (Latasha Gillespie) and Founder and CEO of IMDb (Col Needham). She is also in active development on the dramedy series she wrote, inspired by her experiences as a fashion model in New York City, among others.
