Todd has managed to hone his skills as a visual storyteller and make a career for himself as a film and commercial director/editor. He has always been one to use images as a way of self expression and his ability to put two images together to convey an idea, or thought, or feeling is what fuels him.
Todd has worked with some of the top studios/production companies in the film industry including Amblin Partners, Dreamworks, Disney, Lucasfilm, Warner Brothers, Paramount, Bad Robot and The Kennedy Marshall Company. His work includes feature length narrative films, TV shows, documentaries, trailers, tributes and commercials. He cut a theatrical trailer and several TV spots for Steven Spielberg's award winning film, War Horse, and edited the David O. Selznick Achievement Award tribute which Mr. Spielberg received at the 2012 Producers Guild Awards show. Upon accepting the award, Spielberg remarked "Everyone in this room should be working with Todd Sandler".
He worked as an additional editor on Warner Brothers' summer blockbuster, The Legend of Tarzan, which was released in 2016; and most recently, films include, The Parting Glass, directed by Stephen Moyer (True Blood) and starring Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story), Academy Award Winner Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Academy Award Winner Anna Paquin (The Piano), Cynthia Nixon (Sex & The City), Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) and Ed Asner; Pimp which was written/directed by Christine Crokos and Executive Produced by Lee Daniels. It premiered at TriBeca 2018.
Notable directing credits include the web series, Supreme Tweeter, with Game of Thrones’ Harry Lloyd, Maisie Williams and George R.R. Martin; and most recently the ensemble drama, A Cohort of Guests and the off beat satirical comedy, A Proposed Solution.
Todd is also an experienced musician, sound designer and music editor. His 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.
