Director | Writer | Producer


Steven Pierce is an award-winning director and writer with a body of work that spans narrative, documentary, live music, and commercials. His projects tend to feature strong performances of identifiable characters that carry a strong social message.


Beginning his career as an actor, Steven has a unique ability to reveal nuanced performances. After completing his first narrative feature film, "HERD" (starring: Corbin Bernsen, Timothy V. Murphy, Ellen Adair, Amanda Fuller, and Dana Snyder) in 2022, as well as a feature length documentary/concert film surrounding the breakout indie band, Buke & Gase, in 2021, Steven has three films in development the first of which is scheduled to begin production in 2024. 


He helmed the hit online competition series “Top Photographer” starring Nigel Barker, “What It Takes” for the NHL and Hulu leading up to the 2019 Stanley Cup, and has received four collaborative Emmy awards and one A.C.E. nomination for his work on Saturday Night Live. His high-energy style of storytelling mixes story with pace in order to lift the story off the screen.


As a documentary director he has shaped the stories of people such as Kurt Warner, JJ Watt, Jamaal Charles, Emmanuel Sanders, Christian Yelich, and many more. 


As a live director he has led performances for the Lumineers, Cee Lo Green and the Muppets, Blake Shelton, Jason Mraz, Ed Sheeran, Regina Spektor, twentyone pilots, Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr. and Janelle Monae. His commercial work includes brands such as Amazon, Toyota, CBS, T-Mobile, Canon, Nikon, Proctor and Gamble, Verizon, Motorola, American Family Insurance, and AT&T.

Steven Pierce is a rising director to keep an eye on. His feature debut offers a hint of the brilliance to come, and while HERD may not be the final word in zombie narratives, it’s a sure sign that Pierce is a name to remember in the cinematic universe."
