Eric Brodeur

Eric Brodeur brings over a decade of experience in post-production for feature films, specifically Picture Editing. He’s worked on film such as The Nun, The Grudge, Ouija, Sinister 2, and Transformers The Last Knight from studios including Warner Brothers, Sony, Blumhouse, Paramount, and Netflix with budgets ranging from $4M through $200M.

Early in his career, he worked on independent films (less than $1M) including The Sessions (starring Helen Hunt) which became a Sundance Film Festival winner, alongside Filly Brown which launched the career of Gina Rodriguez (“Jane The Virgin”).
