Originally from Maryland, Sandy began his career working on independent films in New York. After a few years of editing, Sandy joined the Final Frame team in 2005, where he graded festival-bound films and television series. In 2009 he moved to California and worked at Company 3 in Santa Monica, where he headed the company’s digital lab, wrote all of the department’s custom software and developed 3D workflows for films such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Transformers and Fright Night.
In 2012 his short documentary El Último Hielero (The Last Ice Merchant) premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and has since won numerous awards including Best Documentary Short at the Woodstock Film Festival, Woods Hole Film Festival and the Boston Independent Film Festival.
Sandy returned to his familiar grading suite at Final Frame in 2011 where he continues to color independent films and TV shows for various festivals and networks.
