Bernstein also enjoys a reputation for his innovative direction for television, ranging from Homicide to Strangers With Candy for Comedy Central, The Adventures of Pete and Pete for the Nickelodeon Network, and John Leguizamo's House of Buggin', to chilling crime re-enactments for Fox Television's America's Most Wanted.
In 1993, Bernstein directed his first motion picture, the feature film adaptation of Saturday Night Live's gender-bending popular subject, It's Pat. He then paired with writer/publisher Marc Gerald to collaborate on the screenplay adaptation of the celebrated novel Portrait of a Young Man Drowning for his first independent feature, Six Ways to Sunday.
Among his many honors and awards, Bernstein received a 1997 Cable Ace Award for his short subject, Inside Eddie Johnson, which starred Academy Award-winning actress, Susan Sarandon. He garnered a 1997 Silver Palm at the Cannes commercial competition for Meann-Ericson's Fishing, MTV and Billboard Music Video Awards for Love Shack, and a good citizenship medal from the Daughters of the American Revolution.
