Bio

Originally a student of fine art, Manhattan native Mark Friedberg married his passions for both film and painting by cutting his teeth as a Production Designer on a series of influential low budget movies that came about during the New York Indie Film movement of the early-90s.

Friedbergs previous work on small but noteworthy endeavors such as Alexandre Rockwells In the Soup (1992) and Maggie Greenwalds The Ballad of Little Jo (1993) earned great attention leading to his collaboration with a variety of filmmakers ranging from industry stalwarts Garry
Marshall (Runaway Bride, 1999) and Mel Brooks (The Producers, 2005) to independent mavericks like Mira Nair (Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love ,1996), Ang Lee (The Ice Storm, 1997), Ed Harris (Pollock, 2000), Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven, 2002), Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers, 2005), Wes Anderson (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, 2004 & The Darjeeling Limited, 2007), Julie Taymor (Across the Universe, 2007), and Charlie Kaufman (Synecdoche,
New York, 2008).

Other projects completed but not yet released include Julie Taymors imagining of Shakespeares The Tempest, shot on location in Hawaii; Morning Glory, a comedy about the
inner-workings of a TV morning show for director Roger Michell, and the Jodi Foster directed The Beaver, co-starring Jodi Foster and Mel Gibson.
