Stephen J. Chernoski

Writer/ Director


Growing up in the middle of the state, Steve always wondered about differences between the regions of New Jersey. After he met his recent collaborator Alena, the two started working on their film debut documentary "New Jersey: the Movie" a story of self-identification and interdependence. The project gained the attention of distinguished historian John T. Cunningham as well as the New York Times, Star Ledger of Newark and Philadelphia Inquirer. In 2010, Steve finished his second documentary, "Hockey in the USA - part I" and in October 2011, he completed his first feature screenplay, Jersey Zombies.
