Instructor: Steven Fierberg, ASC
Steven Fierberg, ASC, is an award-winning cinematographer and director, receiving an ASC Award for Best Cinematography and a Latin Grammy.
In 2019, he completed shooting the Golden Globe-winning series The Affair, directing two episodes. He did additional photography on Patty Jenson’s upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 and shot the first season of Darren Star’s new series, Emily in Paris.
A native of Detroit, Fierberg escaped to Stanford University as a National Merit Scholar. He spent his senior year in England in an exchange program with Oxford, studying British drama, film and photography. He then plunged into New York’s underworld of graffiti art and punk noir films, working with Paul Morrissey, Scott and Beth B, and Paul Bartel. At the same time, he apprenticed for Los Angeles cinematographers Adam Greenberg and Dean Cundey.
Fierberg’s movie work has ranged from studio films like Entourage and Love & Other Drugs, directed by Ed Zwick and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, to such micro-budget indies as Alex Cox’s Repo Chick and Sally Potter’s Rage. He shot the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, which had the largest August opening of any film in cinema history and introduced Hong Kong-style action filmmaking to America.
