At the suggestion of some audience members, she decided to turn the story into a film. She collaborated with director Mitchell Bard to turn Twenty Minutes of Immortality, a thirty-minute play, into Twenty Minutes of Immortality, a five-minute film. She starred in the film as she had done in the play. The film cam to the attention of the Independent Film Channel who licensed the film for three years. IFC showed the film from 2003 through 2006.

She is currently studying voice with Liz Russo and Mark Murphy.
She co-created, along with writer/director/actor Celia Bressack, a Dorothy Parker reading series called The Potable Dorothy Parker: A Literary Cocktail. Featuring Stephanie as Mrs. Parker, the readings have taken place at Mo Pitkin's and Telephone Bar, where she is also a veteran in the Biweekly Poetry and Prose series. She is also featured reading series: Sex Scenes (by erotica writers Polly Frost and Ray Sawhill) which has been arousing audiences at Cornelia Street Cafe and is now touring around the country.
She was a sex columnist for New York Press from February 2006 until October 2007 from the perspective of a bisexual polyamorist, as well as writing features and reviews. She also wrote for publications such as Clinton Chronicle and Student Travels Magazine.
