Todd Sandler's interest in editing began when he was using two old VHS decks to cut. Soon after, he began
directing, editing, and scoring his own films. Todd's first film, Corey, which was co-directed with his brother,
garnered nationwide attention when it was acquired by the Independent Film Channel to be showcased as
part of their "Shorts Before Features" program. After college, Todd immersed himself in all aspects of
post-production becoming fluent in all relevant video, audio and design hardware and software.
Todd has worked with some of the top production companies in the film industry including Dreamworks, Disney,
Paramount, Bad Robot and The Kennedy Marshall Company. As a freelance editor, his work includes feature
length narrative films, short films, documentaries, trailers, tributes and commercials. Recently, he edited the
dramatic-thriller, Leave, starring Rick Gomez, Frank John Hughes, Ron Livingston and Bryan Cranston; he
recently worked alongside Jonathan Demme on his upcoming documentary, I'm Carolyn Parker, which premiered
at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and the
Toronto International Film Festival; He cut a theatrical trailer and several
TV spots for
Steven Spielberg's award winning film, War Horse, and edited the David O.
Award tribute which Mr. Spielberg received at the 2012 Producers Guild Awards show. Upon accepting
Spielberg remarked "Everyone in this room should be working with Todd Sandler." Although an editor at heart,
also an experienced musician, sound designer and music editor.
Todd's enthusiasm for great storytelling is matched only by his dedication to the craft of cutting, his
world-class technical expertise and his undisputed love of film.
