A producer creates the framework for the chaos of art to become a business
David Streit is a film producer, film consultant and filmmaker with over 35 years in the business. In addition to working on such films as Jurassic Park 3, Species, Paris Texas, Rivers Edge, Deep Cover, and Internal Affairs, he was also a Senior Lecturer and Film Mentor at the American Film Institute for over a decade. He's seen the films he's contributed to go to Cannes, Sundance, TIFF and The Independent Spirit Awards and earn millions of dollars at the box office.
His experience of narrative film production ranges from producer, in control of creative rights, to line producer, to 2nd Unit Director and AD. He continues to make documentaries which he shoots, directs and produces.
As a consultant, he brings a vast knowledge of budgeting, scheduling, cast and crew hiring, and overall production & post-production management to every client. It's his goal to help the production team deliver to an audience the very best film possible, given the time and resources available.
Inspired by some of his favorite filmmakers Fellini, David Lean, and Kubrick, David entered the NYU Film School MFA program. After school David landed a job as line producer on the cult classic, Rockers, filmed entirely on location in Jamaica. When released, it took him to the Cannes Film Festival for the first time. David's passion for film has not wavered since then.
Currently, he's in development with multiple films and episodic series. Based in Los Angeles, he continues to be actively producing films, putting together production teams and consulting filmmakers.

It began with a low budget "impossible to produce" film, Rockers, which was invited to screen at Cannes that year, 1978. In the 80's came more independent films made in New York and Los Angeles. Early success was rewarded with bigger films, notably Species and Jurassic Park 3. The latest, Interior Night, has been an official selection at more than 11 festivals, with five "best of" awards and is currently available on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, Hulu, and more.
As a film producer with experience in digital and multimedia - including motion pictures, video and internet - I supply the know how and expertise to transfer the stories of the heart and mind to the screen.
"Interior Night is a complex, provocative film."
