Neguine Sanani, Editor

Neguine-editorNeguine holds a B.F.A. from the USC Film and Television department in Filmic Writing, and an M.F.A. from AFI in Directing. As a director, she preferred to write with the camera, sculpting the story both as she filmed, and in the edit room. This talent led her to editing.

Early on in her career as an editor, she worked with directors Tamra Davis and George Huang through the IFP program Project Involve, and soon after contributed to the editing of several Lionsgate productions.

Neguine edited the IMAX film Hurricane on the Bayou, which documents the disastrous aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Other feature film work includes The Grey, which won the American Jury Prize at the Santa Barbara Film Festival; and Flip the Script and Love and Other 4-Letter Words, both of which premiered on the B.E.T. Network.

Her film, Bloodworth, starring Kris Kristofferson, who wrote an original song for the film, had its theatrical release May of 2011. Her latest film, The Ghost and the Whale, directed by Anthony and James Gaudioso will hit the festival circuit in 2014.
