Stephen felt that he needed to tell a story about queer people that wasn't nightlife base -- something that wasn't in a club, talking about safe spaces. The result is Day Dream -- a beautiful, ethereal film profiling Kareem Reid, a writer and artist interested in black culture and the arts, as well as being the founder of iconic club night Body Party. Featuring Kareem made total sense for Stephen; "He was the perfect prism for a number of personal reasons. Being someone who I also met at nighttime, he worked perfectly in context of the film's wider premise." This was a story Kareem wanted to tell too -- "I think lots of queer men find it very difficult to be vulnerable with each other… I hope that after watching the film they take, or they find, associate strength and power with vulnerability."
