Home Feature Films Irwin & Fran IMPACT Commercials

 Jordan Stone has always loved the cinema. He spent his childhood watching movies on 8mm, 16mm, 35mm and then on video. There was no television at home and films were shown on 16mm almost every night. When he was 6 years old he learned how to operate the family’s 8mm projector and watched Buster Keaton’s
“The General” until he knew every frame. 

Jordan has worked in the film business since he was 12. He worked at the Edinburgh Film Festival, attended the Havana Film Festival in 1983, then started work in Production as a Second Assistant Director and has been a First Assistant Director for more than 40 years working on feature films, commercials and music videos. Before moving to Italy, Jordan was based in Los Angeles for 8 years working on films with Francis Ford Coppola, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert De Niro, Jeff Bridges, Bruce Willis, Michelle Pfeiffer and Tony Scott.

His parents, Barbara and David Stone established the prestigious London art house cinema chain, The Gate Cinemas and Cinegate Distribution where they premiered films by Fassbinder, Rosi, Bertolucci, Wenders, Oshima, Szabo, Mizoguchi, Scorsese and Woody Allen, among other great filmmakers. Previously they had produced independent American feature films and documentaries and worked with filmmakers such as Robert Kramer and Adolfas and Jonas Mekas.

Jordan also started producing and has worked with Sofia Coppola, Spike Lee, Mike Figgis, Jake Scott and Willem Dafoe on various projects.

 CinemaStone was founded in 1998 and the goal was to establish an original language film program in cinemas in Italy and to create a film production service for feature films, commercials and music videos.

 In 1998, Jordan started programming the Cinema Mexico and Cinema Centrale in Milan, Italy with films in their original language. He invited directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci and his "Last Tango in Paris" and Perry Henzell and his "The Harder They Come" to
"show their films again, for the first time".

 He was the only cinema to program "Titanic" and "The Full Monty" in original language exclusively in Italy. 

He has also written "film pieces" for Conde Nast and Vogue Italia.

In late 2009 Jordan started to write, produce and direct "Irwin & Fran". A feature film with and about Professor Irwin Corey and his wife of over 70 years, Fran. The film also stars actress Susan Sarandon and comedian, political activist Dick Gregory. The film won Best Narrative Film at the 2013 People's Film Festival in New York City.

In 2010 Jordan was the Italian Producer of Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere" which won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.

In 2011 Jordan produced the Dutch feature film Claustrofobia.

Since then Jordan has been busy producing and directing films for the Fashion with a Mission project all over the World.
