Since its formation in 1999, Stick Figure has developed and produced films and series for over 40 television networks and digital platforms.
Founded by Oscar nominated filmmaker, Steven Cantor, Stick Figure has specialized in character driven docu-series such as HBO's Family Bonds (HBO), Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane (E!/Style), American Gypsies (National Geographic) and Catching Hell (The Weather Channel.)
In 2013, Stick Figure was acquired by Ora TV, the digital network owned by Carlos Slim, forming a strategic alliance that has added the potential of significant marketing, financing and distribution capabilities to Stick Figure’s productions.
Whether profiling Amish teenagers or fashion divas or bail bondsmen or gypsies or rock bands, Stick Figure brings its unique ability to build characters and artfully reveal tension to every project they undertake.
UPCOMING & FEATURED WORK
This short film is the latest chapter in a compelling family saga – the tale of sixty-two year old David Robinson, the youngest child of civil rights hero Jackie Robinson, and the life he has built as a farmer in Africa. Robinson has spent the last 30 years assimilating entirely into African culture; raising a family thousands of miles from the Brooklyn streets where his father built a legend, the lily-white suburbs of Connecticut where he was raised and the upscale American businesses that serve his product and fuel his mission – using the world’s second-most-valuable natural resource to spur social change and honor his father’s legacy.
A partnership between UK based Baby Cow Films, Magnolia Mae Pictures and US based Stick Figure Studios DANCER offers a personal portrait of the uber-talented but equally complex and enigmatic ballet superstar, Sergei Polunin.
Directed by Oscar-nominated Steven Cantor, with clips from visionary photographer David LaChapelle, it is produced by Oscar-nominated Gabrielle Tana.
