Steve Audette has been making documentaries for nearly 20 years. With now close to 50 documentary credits, Audette's work has contributed to many Emmy Award-winning documentaries, as well as Peabody and DuPont Columbia Award-winning programs. In 2008 Steve was nominated for an Eddie Award from American Cinema Editors (A.C.E.), in the category of Best Documentary Editor for the Frontline documentary called Bush’s War. The film also went on to win a News and Documentary Emmy. In the fall of 2011 Steve finished cutting three episodes of the special NOVA series Fabric of the Cosmos. In 2012 he has edited four hours on politics for the PBS pubic affairs series FRONTLINE. Steve is currently Senior Documentary Editor for Frontline.
In 2010 Steve expanded his production credits beyond editor to include producer, writer and director. The film short, Nico's Challenge, was the first documentary out of Audette's company, Mezzotint Films LLC. Audette says: "The story of Nico Calabria's climb was in the local paper. I called the family and asked if they shot any footage? The next day I'm screening the dailies and I knew I had a great story and a great little film." Nico's Challenge has garnered wide acclaim in both national and international film festivals. Including a screening at Cannes.
In 2012 Steve produced, wrote, directed and edited a feature-length documentary for Mezzotint Films. Titled The Conviction of Officer Winfield, it is a poignantly disturbing family portrait of how, in an effort to protect children, the medical and legal establishment unleashed a tsunami of investigations, and in their wake, families on both sides try to pick up the pieces. this documentary holds a glimpse of our own vulnerabilities, and shows the horror and ease with which our own lives can get caught-up in the chaos of child terror. This program is scheduled to air on FRONTLINE in the fall of 2013.
