Danielle Feinberg is Director of Photography for lighting at Pixar Animation Studios, a STEM advocate, and supporter of Girls Who Code. Feinberg began her career at Pixar in 1997, after receiving her BA in computer science from Harvard University. Her first position was on the movie A Bug's Life as a render wrangler, an entry level, problem-solving position, and she soon was leading the otherwise all-male department. Feinberg got her first taste of lighting during this time and fell in love with creating the final image for film.
She went on to light many of Pixar's films, including Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., the Oscar-winning Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Brave, and Inside Out. In 2018, Feinberg served as the Director of Lighting for Coco, which earned her the Annie Award for outstanding achievement for product design in an animated feature production.
Feinberg has given talks about the challenges of making Pixar's film in various cities across Europe, Asia, and the United States. Outside of Pixar, she provides a platform to inspire and encourage girls to follow their dreams and pursue them by getting involved in STEM programs, including Girls Who Code. She uses the excitement of movie making to inspire her audiences, and inspired the initiative "made by code" launched by Google in 2014.
In 2015, she appeared in the documentary Code: Debugging the Gender Gap, and later delivered a talk on science and art at TED talks live at New York.
Feinberg was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, and graduated from Boulder High School. She currently resides in Oakland, California, where she has a fine art photography company, and serves on the advisory board for digital film making at the Art Institute of California.
