We have experienced the entire filmmaking process as producers, directors, and editors. Initially written on the page, then during production, and finally in postproduction, where films are made or broken. The best filmmakers started there: Robert Wise, Gus Van Sant, Steven Soderbergh, David Lean.

Our Team

Jeff Canavan



As the middle son of three boys, Jeff grew up in San Bernardino, California where his father ascended with a simple AA degree to an executive role for Southern California Edison; his streetlight designs still adorn West Hollywood, CA, to this day. With straight A’s, a salutatorian honor, a slew of scholarships and his father’s substantial support, Jeff was able to attend USC’s School of Cinema/Television in Production, then known as The GEORGE LUCAS/STEVEN SPIELBERG School of Cinema/Television. In Jeff’s sophomore year, he was privileged to study at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England, where he concentrated on Australian Cinema (including the master works of Peter Weir and George Miller), British Cinema in the 60’s, and the life and legacy of Charles Dickens to whom D.W. Griffith attributed with the “invention” of American Cinema as we now know it by using parallel action (i.e., the controversial but groundbreaking Birth of a Nation)

Post-graduation, Jeff’s career started off in the right direction as assistant editor on Frank Darabont’s critically acclaimed The Shawshank Redemption. From there, Jeff worked with long-time collaborator, Peter Berger (Oscar-Nominated for Fatal Attraction) on films including Metro (starring Eddie Murphy), Star Trek IX: Insurrection, Red Corner (Richard Gere), and Save The Last Dance (starring Julia Stiles, which set box office records for a film opening in January).

As sole film editor, Jeff forged a lasting relationship with prolific director Sean McNamara on films including Raise Your Voice (Hillary Duff), The Cutting Edge 2, Bratz, and Soul Surfer (starring Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid), The Miracle Season (again starring Helen Hunt), before co-editing with Maysie Hoy on Sean’s best film, Spare Parts (starring George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis Marisa Tomei, and Esai Morales).

Jeff’s other films as editor include If I had Known I was a Genius (with Whoopi Goldberg and Sharon Stone – official Sundance Film Festival selection), Watching the Detectives (with Lucy Liu, Jason Sudeikis {Ted Lasso}, and Cillian Murphy {Batman Begins, Dunkirk} another featured selection at Tribeca), and finally Josh Goldin’s directorial debut, Wonderful World, starring Matthew Broderick, Michael Kenneth Johnson, Sanaa Lathan, Jessie Tyler-Furgeson {Modern Family}, and Phillip Baker-Hall, which premiered to rave reviews again at Tribeca.

Jeff’s last film as editor, On a Wing and a Prayer (Dennis Quaid and Heather Graham), just set records for Amazon Prime where it remained number one for three weeks beginning Easter weekend, 2023.

After 29+ years in the cutting room, Jeff turned his attention towards producing starting in 2013 when his first producer effort, Return to the Hiding Place, about Corrie Ten Boom and the Dutch Resistance to the Nazis in World War II, swept every Film Festival it played.

In collaboration with Thomas Farrell II, Dave Kennedy, and Brandon Hogan, Jeff also served as Co-Producer and editor on Field of Lost Shoes, (Jason Issacs, Tom Skerritt) which was named BEST DRAMATIC FEATURE at the 2014 G.I. Film Fest in Arlington, Virginia.

On more personal terms, Jeff has never forgotten growing up gay in a culture that was far from as accepting in the 1970’s and 80’s than it is today. He came of adult age during the AIDS crisis and witnessed countless of those horrifying deaths, up close and personal. Putting intentions into action, Jeff became a FOUNDING MEMBER of the expansion of the Gay and Lesbian (LGBTQ) Center into int’s current location on Schrader in Hollywood, CA, in 1994. He is also a proud supporter of LACMA (the Los Angeles County Museum of Art), the new Academy of Motion Picture Sciences Museum next store, and a long-time contributor to the LA PHILHARMONIC and LA MASTER CHORALE.
