Todd Sandler has always been a visual storyteller. His interest in editing began at an early age when he was using two old VHS decks to cut with. From there, he immersed himself in all aspects of post-production.
Todd has worked with some of the top studios/production companies in the film industry including Dreamworks, Disney, Lucasfilm, 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 alongside Jonathan Demme on the documentary, I’m Carolyn Parker, which premiered at the 2011 Venice Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival; and in 2009, he edited the dramatic-thriller, Leave, starring Rick Gomez, Frank John Hughes, Ron Livingston and Bryan Cranston.
Although an editor at heart, 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.
“He has the uncanny ability to help weed away what isn’t absolutely essential and pierce the core of a scene in ways that are not predictable. And he’s a hell of a lot of fun to work with.” – Robert Celestino, Director
