In his 28 years in documentary television Steven Seidenberg has been a producer, creator, head of development & script editor. Steven has wide experience in all documentary genres. As a producer he has worked in history programming (e.g. The Trial Of George Washngton, Hitler's Death, and Napoleon's Obsession), the sciences (e.g. A Brief History Of Time, with Stephen Hawking, directed by Errol Morris, creative director Steven Spielberg), as well as examinations of ethical and moral issues (e.g. Hypotheticals, with Arthur Miller).
Long before the term "reality programming" had even been invented, Steven was quick to realize the potential of new DVcam technology co-creating the genre-bending 12-part NIGHTS OUT AT THE EMPIRE and the 26-part travel-adventure series, THE $100 TAXI RIDE.
More recently his focus has shifted to Asia. For the past seven years he has worked primarily as a preditor (producer-editor) on various productions in Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore and Seoul where he has made programmes on everything from kung fu monks in Berlin to China's first astronaut to the Korean figure skating sensation Kim Yu-na.
He is currently Head of International Production at LIC China in Beijing.
Steven is an active participant in the European Documentary Network and with them has participated in workshops on international co-production in eleven countries as a tutor and expert. He has taught at Discovery Campus and currently is the Head of Studies at Crossing Borders, the joint EDN, Documentary Campus and Guangzhou Documentary Association's new master school in Asia.
