THE SECRET TAPES OF THE OJ CASE -  A+E Network

 Executive Producer: Stephen Auerbach 

 

 

 

This documentary reveals new insights into both the events surrounding the verdict of the criminal trial, and the various disturbing facets of O.J.’s personality, through statements by O.J. himself, as well as through interviews with those who knew O.J. best. With the 20th Anniversary of the criminal trial verdict upon us, the documentary exposes disturbing realities about O.J.’s thoughts, feelings and behavior before, during and after the trial. And audio recordings that O.J. secretly taped, prior to the infamous Bronco Chase, are heard. (if room for longer synopsis): There were two O.J. Simpsons: the public O.J. -- a charming superstar, media icon; and the private O.J. -- a raging narcissist who had to control every situation, win at everything from football to monopoly, and manage his wife through violence. This second O.J. Simpson is revealed through exclusive and rare interviews with former close friends, including Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, among many others.

This special, tied to the 20th anniversary of O.J. Simpson's criminal acquittal, provides access to his civil trial - the trial that found O.J. responsible for the wrongful deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Viewers get access to the plaintiffs’ deposition tapes from the civil trial – which were locked away and buried in a storage warehouse for nearly 20 years - most revealing is the extensive testimony of O.J. himself. Family members, including Fred Goldman, and members of the civil trial legal team, including Daniel Petrocelli, are interviewed exclusively for the special.

BICYCLE DREAMS: FEATURE FILM

 Producer, Director, Editor: Stephen Auerbach 

 

Bicycle Dreams is one of the most celebrated cycling films of all time. Winner of 17 Film Festivals, Bicycle Dreams is the powerful true story of the Race Across America, a 3000-mile bicycle race that challenges riders to cross the country in just ten days.  Reviews have been magnificent: “An astonishing documentary. Bicycle Dreams is a ride of many stark contrasts; when it ended I felt both shattered and triumphant. I realized I was experiencing its genius.” (Pez Cycling). “Bicycle Dreams captures the human condition like few other films. This movie is not for those who want to shy away from the tragic side of human experience. Bicycle Dreams moves us to break through the barrier of the fear of death. I have seldom found a film that captures this ‘life drama’ as powerfully as does Bicycle Dreams.” (Cycling Review) ” This is a movie about conquering the status quo. It was a kick in the gut. By the end of the movie, I felt drained. Trampled. Ridden over. Spit out. This is not a movie about bikes. It’s about ambition, and the fear most people have of it.”(Drunk Cyclist)

THE MEMORY BOX (FEATURE FILM) - WINNER MONTREAL HUMAN RIGHTS FESTIVAL

 Directors: Stephen Auerbach, Wayne Schoenfeld 

 Editor: Stephen Auerbach

 

Shot entirely on location in Ethiopia, the Memory Box is a story of tragedy and hope in Africa through the eyes of a most unique, Chaplinesque, Dawish the Clown.   Joining a volunteer surgical team from the West, Dawish is drawn beyond the hospital into the villages of rural Africa where the language of pantomime and wit is a universal tongue. He is as at home with the primitive tribes-people of the Omo Valley as he is with the most urbane of the capitol city, Addis Ababa. Dawish is invited into homes, churches, AIDS centers and orphanages where he finds the humanity behind the headlines of poverty, prostitution, hunger, AIDS and hopelessness.  Through the eyes of Dawish the Clown, the viewer is given a fresh view, a new perspective on the cynical predictability of the tragedy of Africa.

"Race Across America," is award winning filmmaker Stephen Auerbach's first documentary to focus upon the world of cycling. This exciting film won the Boulder International Film Festival. It is the story of a great American adventure and spectacular endurance event that invites cyclists to race against one another from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States. "Somewhere in the darkness of a person's existence they confront what scares them, what unnerves them, what makes them wonder about their very next step. This is what the film Race Across America captures by its essence. Whether you ride long distances or not, heck, even if you haven't ridden a bike in 20 years, buy this film. It embodies the deeper struggle of our human existence as we strive, struggle and learn from our failures." (Sports Illustrated) 

RACE ACROSS AMERICA (FEATURE FILM) - WINNER BOULDER INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 
IN SEARCH OF (REMAKE SERIES) FOX TV

 Head Writer: Stephen Auerbach 

 

A big budget revival of the 1976-82 in conjunction with the Producers of The Blair Witch Projecte, this high impact series follows a similiar format as the original as it probes bizarre myths and mysteries through interviews and reenactments. The sober narrator here is Mitch Pileggi, who earned his paranormal stripes playing Walter Skinner on `The X-Files.' Pileggi is a very good replacement for Nimoy.  He has a similar SF pedigree and his voice is a bit creepy which fits in well with the tone of the show.

I DARE YOU: THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE- UPN Network

Producer: Stephen Auerbach

 

 

A big budget Stunt Series that set new standards for Stunt artistry and daring. Recent review from TV Review Magazine: "Each show tackled one huge stunt done in Los Vegas. Most stunts were successful and they were truly dangerous. Great show, worth the watch. Stunt mans playground. When tuning around the TV you might come across this interesting expose of the Stunt World. The main stunt coordinator of the show took on one of the craziest stunts, because all the other guys he knew would not do it. Probably the best show of them all too."

THE LAST KILOMETER - BICYCLE MOVIES VOLUME 2

Executive Producer: Stephen Auerbach

 

A very provocative Italian Film, “The Last Kilometer" is  a portrait of professional road cycling at a crossroads. The film begins with Cadel Evans and then widens out to examine the many changes that have occurred in recent times (with the constant subtext of “is doping ruining the sport?).  The film also asks the question if cycling itself, as a sport worthy of attention and veneration, is on its' last pedal. In other words, is this “The Last Kilometer?”
