Stephanie Diane Ford is a Durham-based filmmaker whose credits on commercial and indie film projects established her reputation as a respected producer, AD and script supervisor. After receiving a B.S. in Business Administration from Drexel University she relocated to Paris to pursue post-graduate studies in Fashion Design Management. Her interest quickly shifted to working behind the camera after creating a teaser video for her style blog MEin5D (now MEin5D Films). She was awarded the “Filmed in NC” grant from Cucalorus Film Foundation in April 2019 for her debut narrative short, “The Black Baptism.”
"You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive." ~ James Baldwin
