Dan Shulman-Means: Editor Reel Resume Contact

DAN SHULMAN-MEANS is an Emmy-nominated editor residing in Los Angeles. After finishing his MFA from the University of Southern California, Dan immediately cut his teeth working as the assistant editor on the Paul Schrader independent film, "The Canyons." Afterwards, Dan honed his talent working as a commercial editor for Stun Creative as well as editing non-scripted action-driven shows such as "Game of Arms" and "Airplane Repo" for AMC and Discovery.

During the height of COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, Dan was part of a small team to travel to Abu Dhabi to cover the epic "Fight Island" event for UFC. Most recently, Dan has edited several investigative documentaries, such as a "Jussie Smollett: Anatomy of a Hoax", and an episode of "The New York Times Presents."
