Step By Step Pictures LLC is dedicated to Navid's cousin, Hamed Khatami, who advised him to make this company with or without him, and start making movies and telling stories. His sudden passing on January 7th 2015 has only made this dedication a stronger one. They shared one simple belief about movies, and that was to communicate emotional stories that showcase the human spirit and its journey in life. Regardless of fictional or non-fictional stories, we find ourselves on the screen with characters that we can connect with. That was our goal and now our mission.
