Steven Fierberg recently completed principal photography on George C. Wolfe’s You’re Not You, starring Hilary Swank as an ALS victim, Kevin Connolly’s Dear Eleanor, starring Jessica Alba and Luke Wilson, and Jason Moore’s Pulling, a pilot for ABC/Disney.
Strangely enough, every film he did in 2012 was actually shot on 35mm film, although Dear Eleanor was shot on Alexa. His dramatic cinematography has ranged from micro budget indy films such as Alex Cox’s Repo Chick to studio movies like Ed Zwick’s Love and Other Drugs, featuring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. His favorite work includes Joel Schumacher’s poignant Twelve, Steven Shainberg's provocative Secretary, which won a special jury prize from the Sundance Festival for originality, and HBO’s hit series Entourage, for which he shot the first twenty five episodes.
Other work includes the pilots for ABC’s Once Upon a Time and HBO’s How to Make It in America as well as Sally Potter’s Rage starring Jude Law, Judi Dench and Steve Buscemi. He won a Latin Grammy for best video of the year for Robi Draco Rosa’s Mas y Mas, while his work on the epic mini-series Attila earned him the ASC (American Society of Cinematographers) Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cinematography.
A native of Detroit, Fierberg escaped to Stanford University as a National Merit Scholar. He has been an officer in the American Society of Cinematographers, and a member of the Motion Picture Academy. He has taught Camera & Visual Storytelling and other workshops for more than a decade at the Maine Media Workshops, as well as classes at NYU, USC and AFI.
