JONATHAN C. STEVENS
Jonathan C. Stevens is an award winning videographer who has filmed, edited & produced dozens of videos. He is also a poet who has been featured in numerous anthologies, compilations, public art installations and had four titles of his own carried in stores from Lowell to San Francisco. As a sketch artist he has been commissioned for several dozen pieces of artwork. In addition, Jonathan is a lay historian well-versed in the history of the city of Lowell. He has been embedded in Lowell's cultural community for the past decade.
Aloysius Productions was started by Jonathan in Lowell, MA in 2016 as a result of his pre-production work on the feature film The Merrimack, and production of the documentary series Collage of a City. From September of 2013 to December of 2014 Stevens’ father, uncle, and grandfather passed away. Those losses fueled his ambition to fulfill what he sees as his life mission of serving people through the arts. The production company drew its name from Stevens' grandfather’s middle name - Aloysius - which translates to “famous warrior” in German. To continue the legacy of his grandfather’s middle name, Stevens took steps for Aloysius Productions to become that “famous warrior” and began pursuing his vision.
Aloysius Productions, “famous warrior,” is a passionate arts entity that seeks to create enlightening and empowering works of art through visual, print & audio media. Jonathan’s desire is for The Merrimack film project to be a catalyst for long-term artistic expressions that will showcase and promote not only the thriving city of Lowell, but also individuals and activities that are making a positive impact on our world.
