Watch Episode 3: The Style of “Entourage”
Steven Fierberg, ASC shot 25 episodes of Entourage
from 2004-2006 during which time he created many of the central looks and famous scenes of the show. In particular, the party scenes were always an exciting challenge. He was also the Cinematographer on the 2015 movie, Entourage
, which had some amazing party scenes that brought this look full circle. "It has to feel almost off-hand and natural - oh, look at that, let's shoot that!...and not overworked and not over-controlled also. There has to be a love of anarchy about it."
Watch Episode 4: Making of "The Affair"
Fierberg talks about working with different Directors on The Affair
and how it is his job as Cinematographer to carry the look of the show. Plus, how he and the pilot Director established that look with specific lens choices and filters. "There was an intimacy achieved with a wide lens closeup than a telephoto closeup...The Affair is all about love, and it's a tragic love story, so it's lit, hopefully, that way."
