JASON SHARMAN is a filmmaker and freelance film editor based in Toronto, Ontario. He has been making films since he could hold a camera (pretty much) and those were some heavy cameras back then. It started with putting on plays (and recording them) for his family, then high school projects (including making a feature film with his friends when there was a 2-month strike), then promo videos, web shorts, music videos, wedding slideshows, faux-reality shows, a viral flash mob, and eventually a short horror/comedy for which he won the "Emerging Canadian Artist Award" at the Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival in 2013. His recent credits include feature film The River You Step In (Editor/Producer) and kids tv series Camp Cowabunga (Creator/Writer/Director/Producer) currently in development.
With a passion for storytelling, Jason loves editing and collaborating with fellow filmmakers to help bring their stories to the screen. REDWATER PICTURES (named after the street he grew up on) is his quirky, cozy, professional home studio.
Jason has a BFA in Theatre from York University where he focused his studies on collective creation, playwriting, and directing.
