      Steve Miner has had a prolific and varied career directing for television and features and encompassing genres as varied as horror and romance. Following a production career in industrial and educational films, Miner began his professional feature work as an editor on films helmed by Sean S Cunningham, starting out with "The Case of the Full Moon Murders" (1973) and "Here Come the Tigers" (1978). In 1980, inspired by the success of John Carpenter's "Halloween" (1978) the two endeavored to make their own independent horror film, and began the summer camp set gore classic "Friday the 13th" series. Miner served as associate producer and unit production manager on the first film, with Cunningham taking directing duties. For the follow-up, 1981's "Friday the 13th Part 2," Miner produced the film and made his directorial debut with a script that read like a primer on the conventions of horror films. Faring better was the third installment, appropriately titled "Friday the 13th - Part 3," incorporating more scares and suspense and less predictability and needless nudity. This chapter of the prolific series was shown in theaters in an especially involving 3D version and marked Miner's cameo acting debut as a newscaster.
