Steve Kanter

Editor. Finisher. Trainer
Over the past 25 years, I've edited stories in every genre and medium, from narrative feature films and episodic television, to feature documentaries and reality TV, to online streaming services.
Whether as an assistant, editor or finisher, I see myself as part of a team, a cog with a specific function, in service of the story we are working together to tell. I am an assistant and editor in the Motion Picture Editors Guild, Local 700
As a bonus, due to my sideline as a Certified Trainer for Apple, Avid, Adobe and Blackmagic NLEs, I am expert with every major non-linear editing platform, and have trained and supported editors in every post production environment possible.
