            Steven Wiig


            Steven Ray Wiig was born in Ishpeming, Michigan. He grew up in Negaunee and graduated from Negaunee High School in 1991, where he was voted "Most Artistic" by his classmates. Wiig attended Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI, where he studied Psychology, Sociology & Graphic Arts, and worked as in-house artist at KC Comics.

            He relocated to Minnesota after college in the mid-nineties, where he performed with his band, The Martichora, and produced & acted in several student films, including All Praise The Electric Light. Soon after, Wiig began working on the road and in the studio with multi-Grammy award winners Metallica, producing and shooting several 'on the road' documentaries in the late '90's for multiple bands, including Corrosion Of Conformity's tour home video "Seven Daze."

            Wiig relocated to California to work with Metallica Bassist Jason Newsted at his home studio and play in Newsted's band, Papa Wheelie. He continued working and traveling the world with Metallica for over a decade performing numerous duties--fan club writer, photographer, videographer, backline assistant, production, and band personal assistant. Wiig played bass for Metallica at The Playboy Mansion in 1998 filling in for Newsted and in 2003 appeared in Metallica's award winning documentary Some Kind Of Monster.

            Encouraged by his friend, actor, writer and director Sean Penn to "start acting," Wiig was soon cast in Penn's Into The Wild in 2006 and Gus Van Sant's Milk in 2008, spending numerous days on both sets immersed in 'film world'. He has assisted Oscar-winner Penn on several personal and professional projects and worked as a consultant for Social Capital Films for Ridley Scott's Tell-Tale. In 2010, Wiig documented Faith No More's homecoming reunion 'trilogy' performances at San Francisco's Warfield Theater and directed Jerry Hannan's "The Bridge" music video for the motion picture "Guitar Man".

            Steven Wiig continues acting & directing and is working as a producer to bring the film version of R.A. Riekki's novel U.P. to the screen.
