"A sales agent's success is judged by the impact it has on its Producers"   Jeffrey Cooper, President CEG

CEG prides itself on their strong relationships with producers and filmmakers. Here are just a few testimonials of what they have to say about CEG.


"AMAZING!! So we finished our movie WHISPERS and were extremely cautious with whom we wanted to rep our film, as knowing other film producers in the past who hired certain companies to sell there film simply did not get the job done or scammed their movie. Thank goodness for Jeffrey Cooper and his top rated company Cut Entertainment!! Received an email about one of our other movies from Jeffrey and I of course was skeptical. But within minutes knew his company was so legit and we signed both films within 48 hours knowing he was going to get the job done. Within one month we had several offers for domestic distribution and talking to Jeffrey about which one to take was a no-brainer with his experience and expertise in the field. We secured our movie release within 4 weeks of signing and currently the film is the second highest horror movie on Redbox. What else can you say!! We would ONLY use Jeffrey on our films as he is a straight shooter and returns calls and emails; that is rare in this business. We have never been happier and know we have all our films secured in his company!!"

Craig Rees
Producer "Whispers"


"Jeffrey Cooper is by far the hardest working sales agent I have ever encountered. He's to the point and gets you the best option for your film, hands down. If only I had met him sooner! I will definitely be sending future films his way and if you want the best for your project, you should do the same. Thank you Jeffrey for all your hard work. Keep it up!"

Brett Brentman
Writer/Producer/Director "The Night Before"


"As soon as CEG jumped on board with the sales for my most recent project, things shifted gears and the results were almost immediate. Great, clear lines of communication and an experienced, knowledgeable sales agent (Jeff Cooper) are such essential ingredients to getting your film out there."

Nicholas Winter
Producer/ Director 'Transhuman'


"CEG is fantastic. In a few short months Jeff was able to secure us a domestic deal and three foreign territories too. We appreciate Jeff's years of experience and his great reputation with distributors. Everybody knows Jeff. He is a straight shooting, no-nonsense kind of guy which is a rarity in the distribution game. Last but not least, Jeff always answers his phone and emails. We couldn’t be happier."

Stephen Readmond and Christopher Stanley
Producers "All Through the House"


"CEG attained a North American and international rights deal for us that included an advance in very timely fashion. I was not only pleased with the deal and the distributors, but with Jeff's accessibility. This latter is just not something you get with every sales agent. Jeff was always willing to advise and answer questions, large and small, by phone and never seemed put off that I was calling or asking them. For this, I was extremely grateful indeed."

Miles Doleac
Writer/Director/Producer "THE HOLLOW"


"Very firm and direct, CEG and Jeffrey Cooper certainly secures good deals for their producers! Having been let down in the past by many sales agents and distributors has been a learning process; but with Jeffrey, after seeing the results, I can confirm he is one to trust. I am very happy with my Redbox deal and to think there will be more platforms that may want the film excites me further. I hope to be working with Jeffrey more often."

Taz Yildirimlar
Writer/Director/Producer "MY GUARDIAN ANGEL"


Working on a film is terribly difficult. When it comes time to get it out into the world, it's pivotal to have someone that believes in your product and can help it reach the widest possible audience. Unfortunately, the initial foreign sales agents I signed with managed to sell mine in 2 territories and keep all the profits, claiming that anything I would've made had to go back into their traveling, meal and festival expenses. After all that hard work, I felt like it was all for nothing. Enter Jeffrey Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group. After re-obtaining the rights back to my film, he came highly recommended by former clients and friends of mine and they were absolutely right. He's fair, up-front and honest. He told me there were no hidden fees or obligations. If we sold the movie, we both profited from it. And sure enough, within a week he had already finalized our first deal. Now because of him and his company, my film suddenly has a second life. I hope to continue working with CEG in the future on any and all of my projects.

I was amazed at how quickly Cut Entertainment Group found a US distribution deal for my micro-budget horror movie. CEG's agreement and rates were extremely reasonable and didn't make me feel "locked in". As a first time producer, I really appreciated that Jeffrey Cooper was responsive to my questions and helped me through the process. He also championed the movie to festival programmers and got it into a major European festival. If want a sale, Cut Entertainment Group will make it happen.

Jaron Henrie-McCrea
Writer/Director/Producer "Curtain"


We’re so thrilled to have signed with Jeff Cooper and CEG. They brought us deals at lightning speed and in a matter of weeks we closed multiple territories. Professional, transparent and accessible, CEG is a joy to work with and we look forward to a prosperous future.

Jim Phillips
Producer "Playing with Dolls: Bloodlust"
Starring Richard Tyson


"Working with Jeffrey Cooper was an absolute joy. We couldn’t haven’t asked for a better partner in securing our US deal. A professional service from start to finish, we look forward to working with Cut Entertainment Group in the future."

George Isaac
Writer/Director/Producer "All Things to All Men"
Starring Gabriel Byrne, Rufus Sewell, Juliann Sands, James Frain, Elsa Pataky and Toby Stephens


"Jeff Cooper is a pleasure to deal with. He's patient and makes himself available at all times. He helped us not only get a great deal, but was willing to fight for us to make it even better. I look forward to working with him on future projects."

Jonathan Lee Smith
Producer "2 Br/1 Ba"
Starring Alexa Vega, Spencer Grammer, Kathryn Morris, Richard Riehle and Jennifer Lyons


"Before signing with Cut Entertainment Group we were dissatisfied with our current Sales Agency. For nearly a year they had not been open with us nor communicated with our team on how the film was selling and plans for our film's success. However, once we discussed where we wanted to go with our film with CEG it was amazing! Not only did they provide us with legal expertise enabling us to terminate the agreement with our current Sales Agent, they also had a real plan for our film and closed a deal within two weeks! I can’t recommend this company enough. They are great; open, honest and easy to deal with."

Michael Budd
Producer
"Love of My Life"


"This is my second film with CEG. Within one month of signing they closed a great domestic deal and foreign deals with two major territories as well; and in that timeframe I've already received revenue. A company with tremendous integrity, a no-nonsense attitude and a miniscule expense cap that puts YOU in control, it just doesn't get any better than CEG."

Stephen Durham- Death Factory
Writer/Executive Producer/Producer


"Cut Entertainment worked quickly in pursuing the best interests of our film and did so efficiently. Jeff Cooper did an excellent job keeping us updated throughout the process and addressing any questions and concerns as they surfaced. In particular, he was receptive to the type of companies we felt would best represent the film and focused his efforts in their direction. Highly recommended."

Teddy Schenck
Director/Producer "7E"
Starring Natasha Lyonne, James Russo, John Savage, Brendan Sexton III


"Jeffrey Cooper and CEG did a great job! I was very impressed with the speed and enthusiasm they've handled our film. Very pleased that they've gotten a deal so quickly and I look forward to working together more."

Neil Jones

“I wanted to thank you for all your work with my film. Everything has gone better than I truly expected. I am very happy to have hooked up with CUT Entertainment and hope to work with you again on my next film.”

Jay Kanzler
Writer/Director "23 Minutes to Sunrise"
Starring Eric Roberts, Nia Peeples


"After being with a much larger producer's rep and not getting the kind of deal I was looking for, I signed with Jeff Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group (CEG). Jeff calls and is hands on all the time! You actually feel like someone is looking out for you, and he always answers his phone. Within 4 days of signing a rep deal with CEG, Jeff called with a solid offer from a U.S. distributor. That was 3 days ago. Since then I have had 3 other offers and agreed to terms with a U.K. distributor. Jeff will explain contract terms over the phone and add his expertise before making deals. He is a whirlwind sales agent with great contacts that result in exciting and solid deals."

Roger Sewhcomar
Director "Do You Like My Basement?"


"Cut Entertainment has been amazing! President of the company, Jeffrey Cooper, is a straight shooter and gets deals done. We had searched high and low for the right company to partner up with to get distribution. Cut Entertainment was recommended to us from a fellow filmmaker, so we decided to give them a ring. Glad we did, as our film is now distributed. We look forward to future projects with Cut Entertainment"

Shaun Piccinino
Director/Producer "The Lackey"


'Jeffrey Cooper doesn’t mess about. He comes across sharp, blunt, to the point and finds out the facts, then he sells your film. It hasn’t even been a month since I sent him my film and he has already secured a release date so I am extremely impressed and will not doubt him in future. I will be sending him many more of my films and I will be recommending his services with immediate effect.'

Taz Yildirimlar
Producer/Writer/Director "Crossland"


“I have worked with CEG several times and it is always a pleasure and a success. As a sales company they cover all the bases: targeting and selling to the right buyers, on top of payments, trustworthy and communicative. I look forward to many more projects with them.”

Michael Baker, Bunk 11 Pictures
'Kenneyville' and 'Psychotica'


"First international sale in less than a week, and a fantastic domestic distribution deal in less than a month. If Jeff believes in your film enough to say he'll hit the floor running, run with it, because he will. Jeff's the man, and CEG gets it done... and gets in done right. Outstanding."

-Gary Weeks
Writer/Producer "DEADLAND"


"I'm a huge fan of Jeff and CEG. There's no "retainer fee" or upfront money like the other sales reps around town and you only sign a 60 day exclusivity contract, eliminating the fear that your film will sit on a shelf for a year. It's virtually risk free so I said why not, I like to make films not sell them. CEG sold our film to major international territories and sealed a US distribution deal in three weeks after signing...enough said."

-John Will Clay
Producer/Director "Interception"


"Jeffrey Cooper is the most efficient and no-nonsense agent I have worked with. He did everything he promised in the time frame he promised, and now Hell’s Tomb is distributed in five countries, including being placed in the lap of Lion’s Gate! Jeffrey has his fingers on the pulse of current distribution trends and will do everything in his power to ensure your film receives advances and royalties so that you can satisfy your investors and get on with making your next picture! Do not hesitate to sign with Jeffrey Cooper if he offers you his hand! Thank-you Jeffrey for all your hard work and perseverance!"

aka Predators Hell's Tomb (Germany) aka Tomb Soldier (Japan)


"After producing "Sight" I found myself unable to devote the time necessary to pound the distribution pavement. Upon seeing the film, Jeffrey Cooper made it clear to me that little would get in his way of finding a deal for me. Which is exactly what he's done; "Sight" is now slated for release with Lions Gate."

Clayton Haske, Producer- Sight


"Two weeks after signing with CEG my film was offered a respectable deal with the right distributor. CEG was honest, forthright, fair and speedy. I can honestly say Jeff Cooper is one of the few people a filmmaker can trust in this industry."

Vita Lusty Producer/Director Til Death Do Us Part


"Jeffrey Cooper and CEG flawlessly navigated us through the distribution waters, the ending result being that I signed a distribution contract that I'm extremely happy with. I truly appreciate CEG looking out for us the way they did. A rare commodity with any sales agent in today’s marketplace."

Eric Stanze Director/ Deadwood Park


"Just two weeks after I signed with Cut Entertainment my film not only secured a US distribution deal but my first international sale as well. Easily accessible, quick, aggressive movers and shakers, a company that returns phone calls promptly and pays it producers, there is simply no substitute for CEG."

Jack Thomas Smith - Writer/Director/Producer of "Disorder"


"I knew Jeffrey Cooper and CEG were the right fit for my picture within moments of our first discussion. After chatting for nearly an hour with Mr. Cooper I learned more about distribution than in all my 35 years of producing and directing. I'd personally like to thank him and his team for their hard work and professionalism in representing our feature film. Through their hard work and stature in the film industry we were able to strike a deal with a top notch distributor in all of two months. I couldn’t have dreamed of the level at which they operate. Jeffrey took a small project and made it a big project. His resources are incredible and his work is relentless."

Stephen Durham, Producer/Director
Bloodlines


"CEG Rules! Jeffrey Cooper and CEG have a fantastic working knowledge of the industry and were very quickly able to find the correct market for my film. The Planet now has distribution deals in the US and Japan and this is entirely down to Jeffrey Cooper and Cut Entertainment. They have surpassed our expectations and shown us that our movie can do well if handled by the right agent. Going with CEG has been the best decision I've made in a long time."

Mark Stirton, Director
"The Planet"


"Jeffrey Cooper is no holds barred! He took my call, requested a screener, liked it, sent me a contract that was simple, clear, concise and included an easy-out clause had I not been satisfied with his company's services. Two weeks later he had a North American DVD deal lined up with a top-notch distributor. Jeff asks for no money up-front and takes on the risk with you. What more could a producer ask for?"

Ron Smorynski - "World Gone Mad"


"Jeff Cooper does walk the walk! He promised a North American DVD sale within 60 days and he did indeed deliver. All of our films have been released theatrically in North America and while most have studio ancillary deals I've NEVER seen anyone deliver activity on a film as fast and skillfully as Jeff Cooper and CEG!"

Sharon Lester
Director of Distribution, Rainbow Releasing
Producer- GOING SHOPPING, starring Rob Morrow, Lee Grant, Bruce Davison (US Video Release)


"Effectively sending our film to a wide distribution market and landing us a deal with a first rate distributor, Jeffrey Cooper and CEG got the job done. Thanks to their efforts our film is out to a broad audience. I’d recommend CEG to anyone."

Julian Adams
Solar Filmworks
Writer/Director- The Last Confederate: The True Story of Robert Adams


"Jeff Cooper and CEG don't mess around, period! Quick results, honest breakdown of the deal, and people skills that Hollywood should take notes on. I imagine that any filmmaker is pretty much exhausted by the stress of the whole process once it comes time to get a movie sold and seen, and CEG proves a genuinely refreshing departure from all that. Good job, mate."

Jason Bounds- Writer/Director- Day X (US Video Release)


“Jeff Cooper and CEG are remarkably hard-working, and I am constantly impressed with their ability to get genuine results for my film. Their diligence and enthusiasm are a breath of fresh air in this business. I am very fortunate to be working with them.“

Bilge Ebiri
Writer / Director NEW GUY (US VIDEO RELEASE)


“Intelligent, hard-working, and street smart, Jeff ‘The Coop’ Cooper brings many gifts to the table.

He puts a lot of focus on the filmmaker, not just the buyer, to come up with the right fit -- both short and long term. He is not afraid to tell either party if the fit is not right, irrespective of how excited someone may be. This shows enormous integrity and leads to a successful end result for all parties involved.

Working with ‘The Coop’ is like playing doubles in tennis and finding out Andre Agassi is your partner – you might make a couple of good shots, but he’ll win the match.”

Lance Doty
Writer / Producer, NOISE (US VIDEO RELEASE)


"Jeff Cooper and CEG are persistent, driven, and honest -- great qualities to have in a sales agent and producer's rep. We're excited by their ability to get results, and feel lucky to have them on our side."

Jeanne O' Brian

"CEG gets results. The enthusiasm, honesty, and simplicity that Jeff Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group bring to the process of selling a film is really remarkable. I signed on with Cut Entertainment Group and my film was sold in a month."

JT Petty

Soft For Digging (US VIDEO RELEASE)


"Jeff Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group are the only indie sales agents that I have ever worked with whose feet match their mouth, in other words they walk the walk.

If you tire from all the nonsense and deception in the film distribution business, send CEG your film. They will find a market for it very quickly and fairly, allowing you to do what you do best, make films. They sold the US and Canada in less then 3 weeks, and in that time I've also received my first overseas deal. If you need it to happen, Jeff's the man.

Benjamin Meade, Director "James Ellroy presents Bazaar Bizarre"


"My partner and I had already received a few distribution offers when along came Jeff Cooper and CEG. He asked what kinds of offers we had and assured us that he could do better. Within two days he had a solid offer for North American distribution that totally blew our other offers away. After that, Jeff wasted no time fitting our film to a deal in the United Kingdom. We worked hard and worked smart, but Jeff Cooper's deal-making ability is what really saved the day. Thanks to Cut Entertainment Group, audiences the world over will see our movie! I'm telling you, everyone needs a Jeff Cooper. I'm so glad he's on our team."

Roger Leatherwood
Director, "USHER"


“It took five years to get our first film distributed. It took our second film four years. Mr. Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group managed to get our third movie a wonderful north American video distribution deal in a few months. It's the first time we get to release a movie the same year we finish it. Now that's what we can call a success story! Thank you CEG.”

Ricardo Islas
Writer/Director NIGHT FANGS (US VIDEO RELEASE)


"In this tough market it’s a pleasure to have a tireless rep. like Jeff Cooper in Killer Me’s corner. Jeff is upfront and honest, keeps his inventory small enough to give individual attention to each title, and at the end of the day he makes sure his filmmakers get paid."

Zachary Hansen
Writer/Director "Killer Me"
US Video Release/ Germany Video Release


"Straight up and to the point, I knew I liked Jeffrey Cooper the first time we spoke. I liked him even more when he called me three weeks after signing with CEG to tell me that my film Wesley Cash was going to be picked up for distribution. I’m still in shock!"

Thanks, Jeff. You did an amazing job and I am highly impressed."
