"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.

I've worked with Jeffrey and CEG on four films now. Each time, he's secured favorable distribution deals for me both in North America and internationally. What's even more important is that Jeff is always upfront and clear when offers are made and never pulls punches about what they are and what they aren't. He doesn't immediately advise you to take a deal because the distributor is bigger or offers a larger guarantee. In my experience, Jeff looks out for the long-term interests of the film and that's what has most impressed me during our continuing partnership.

-Miles Doleac
Historia Films

CEG is amazing! They work very hard and we got our first distribution deal by a great company in no time. Jeffrey Cooper's care and knowledge is second to none. He is truly superb at what he does. I would highly recommend CEG and Jeffrey Cooper!

Cooper Oznowicz
Producer 'Fuzzy Head'
Starring Alicia Witt, Ruchard Riehle, Fred Melamed

Anyone seeking a sales agent that is hard-working and dedicated must check out Jeffrey Cooper & CEG. Within two weeks they've already locked up North America and multiple foreign territories. Friendly, prompt, and with integrity, I can't express how thankful I am as their no-nonsense approach gets the job done!

Hassan Hussein
Writer/Producer/Director 'Strain 100'

I was told we had to have a successful festival run to generate enough interest to get a great distribution deal… absolute nonsense… all we needed was CEG. On the back of our sizzle reel, Jeff Cooper and his team watched the finished film, and within a short time they’d sorted us several fantastic distribution deals. Jeff even got us an offer from our ‘preferred distributor’ that we wanted him to go after… and then he got us a better offer from an even better distributor! Very grateful for their efforts.

Pete Wild
Writer / Producer 'Scream of the Wolf'

In less than a week after signing with CEG they'd already come back to me with an offer from a US distributor. But CEG didn't stop there. Collectively, we held off and decided to play the field. In a matter of days Jeffrey Cooper came back with a new deal that was offering 3x as much MG, plus it was with a BIG distributor. As just a small film to land a deal like that was incredible, and it's all down to Jeffrey. As I write this, Jeff is still coming to us with new deals from various territories across the world. I have another film that will be ready in a couple of months and I would have no hesitation in partnering with Cut Entertainment Group again to get our film great distribution deals.

Gareth Carr
Writer/Producer/Director 'Saving Grace'

Jeffrey Cooper is a rare commodity. He does what he says he’ll do, when he says he’ll do it, with honesty and integrity. In addition to landing us a great North American deal with a top-tier distributor, he got us an MG (when everyone else said this could not be done). He will advise you wisely then proceeds in whatever manner you deem best. Not only is Jeffrey a great sales agent, he’s a genuine human being. I wholeheartedly recommend CEG.  

Michael Mongillo
Writer/Director “The Changed”
Starring Tony Todd, Clare Foley, and Jason Alan Smith

We are extremely grateful to Jeffrey Cooper & CEG for their knowledge, expertise & efficiency in guiding us through sales and distribution deals. Jeffrey promised to get us distribution within a month of signing with him, and he delivered - a great deal from a highly reputable distribution company. Jeffrey does not stop till he delivers! Which means A LOT in Hollywood. We are very excited about our deal, a theatrical distribution in the US. He then took on our international and has gotten several deals/territories since. Great job, Jeffrey. Thank you! Can’t recommend him enough.

Serah Henesey
Producer ‘The Surprise Visit'
Starring Jacqi Vene and Eric Roberts

Working with Jeffrey Cooper and CEG has been so effortless. Jeffrey is always accessible and completely transparent about each deal he obtains. This is the first time I've worked with CEG and everything is going extraordinarily well. Already North America and four foreign territories are in the books. We look forward to continuing our partnership and having more positive results in the future.

Diego Silva Acevedo
Writer/Producer/Director 'Hunting Souls'

Jeff Cooper is an honest, straight-up guy who cares about his filmmakers. He secured our domestic release and even got us our first International deal in the United Kingdom within a month of signing him on. He even helped us obtain PR Marketing for our release. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and well connected. Thank you, Jeff!

Veronica Robledo
Writer/Producer/Director ‘The Crickets Dance’

"I've worked with Jeffrey Cooper and CEG on three projects now. The first of which, to my surprise and delight, is still generating significant revenue six years after its initial release. For the second, I'd begun seeking international distribution with a different sales agent. Six months, nothing. I canned that deal, gave the film to CEG and, within two weeks, they had sold an international territory with a significant MG. For my latest one, I was looking for a true theatrical release and a North American distributor with the size and resources to support it. In the wake of Covid, with movie theaters struggling, that was probably a tall order. Jeff was unfazed. Fairly quickly, he had two major distributors interested in my film and making offers. The one I chose ticked off all the boxes. It was Jeff's tenacity and negotiating skills that helped increase our distributor's initial offer and, ultimately, solidified the theatrical release I felt my film deserved. As a result, that film, my sixth feature, will have the largest release of any film I've directed to date. In addition, Jeff picked off a handful of international territories for us right out of the gate. He also doesn't quit on a film after its first year, as some sales agents do, but continues to seek out revenue-generating opportunities. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Jeff again (in fact, I hope I have the opportunity) and will continue to recommend him to filmmakers looking for a shrewd, straight-shooting sales agent, who can help navigate the often-complicated path an indie film must tread to find an audience."

Miles Doleac
Producer/Director, ‘Demigod’
Starring Rachel Nichols

CEG has been an invaluable partner for 'The Good Things Devils Do'. Jeff Cooper's breadth of knowledge for the business has been an incredible asset in finding our feature distribution in North America and well abroad. I highly recommend, if given the chance, signing with Jeff Cooper and Cut Entertainment. This is a decision that will see you well past the initial process, as he keeps up with your progress, is an excellent communicator, and will see you through to the other side! You won't regret it!

Jesse Norvisgaard
Writer/Director 'The Good Things Devils Do'

Cut Entertainment Group pledged to sell my movie within the first month of being my agent, and they sold it to a big distributor in the US as well as several foreign countries almost immediately. They live up to their promises to get your motion picture in front of the right people. I'm very excited and happy to be working with CEG, and look forward to bringing them my next film!

Michael Blevins
Writer, Producer, Director "Digging to Death"

Jeffrey Cooper is amazing to work with. Very straightforward and cuts to the chase. He knows how to get great deals done. Looking forward to expanding our professional relationship with CEG.

Nathaniel Nuon
Writer, Producer, Director "The Voices"
Starring Ashley Bell, Jordan Ladd and Leslie Easterbrook

Working with Jeffrey Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group was great. They were able to get our film the proper attention it deserved, and we were able to sign with one of the best distribution companies an independent film can have. Don't think twice, work with CEG now!

Kyle Couch
Writer, Director "The Tent"

Since my producing partner and I signed with Jeffrey Cooper and CEG, they've closed several distribution deals and only within a couple of months. Even during this hard time with the Covid-19 pandemic Jeffrey has never stopped working and successfully sold our movie to territories like the USA, Canada, Scandinavia, Benelux and the UK. And for sure many more countries to follow soon. On top of that, they've managed to arrange our film to be screened at one of the most prestigious European film festivals. Great job so far Jeffrey!

Marcel Walz
Producer, Director "Blind"

We couldn't be more happy with the tremendous start of Jeffrey Cooper and CEG. Thanks to their diligence and guiding us through the process, in only a matter of months they've secured multiple distribution deals that have exceeded our expectations, including North America and major territories in Europe and Asia. A lot of gut and trust went into choosing our agent and it’s always nice when instincts are correct and pay off. Highly recommended!

Jonathan Shepard (Producer), Sam Farmer (Writer/Director)
"Cry for the Bad Man"
Starring Camille Keaton

Couldn’t be more thrilled with how Jeffrey Cooper and CUT Entertainment found distribution for our film, The Bygone. Jeffrey understands the wants and needs of a filmmaker and made the often difficult process of finding a home for a film easy and enjoyable.

Parker Phillips
Co-Writer, Producer, Co-Director "The Bygone"
Starring Graham Phillips, Shawn Hatosy, Jacqueline Toboni, Ritchie Coster

Cut Entertainment Group delivered exactly what they promised - a favourable distribution offer from a reputable company in no time at all. Jeffrey was a pleasure to deal with from the start, was forthright about all aspects of the sales process, and his efficiency and knowledge were integral in securing the right deal for us quickly and with no hassle whatsoever. We are extremely pleased with the service CEG offered throughout and have no hesitation in recommending the company to others. We look forward to working with Jeffrey again in the future.

Adam Howes
Writer, Producer "The End of All Things"

CUT Entertainment Group has been fantastic to work with. Distribution is an ever-changing challenge and through our partnership with Jeffrey Cooper and CEG as our sales agent, we were able to navigate through getting our film into the marketplace quickly with real financial returns evident earlier than expected. I was pleasantly surprised at how on point he was with his timeline for offers, his honest evaluation of our project with regards to market potential and his fair & unbiased consultation when it came time to sign an agreement. I would recommend CEG without hesitation.

James Suttles
Director, Producer "The Evil Inside Her"
Starring Eric Roberts

Jeffrey Cooper is all you could want in a sales agent. He fought for the most dollars for our film and made sure we got paid on time! He negotiated fair terms for our project and kept everything 100% transparent. Cut Entertainment is a cut above the rest.

Byron Booker
Producer "The Afterparty"

"I've been in Hollywood for more years now than I'm willing to mention. I have been working in the entertainment business in some capacity the entire time (DECADES); Yikes! This being said, over the time I have discovered that loyalty, honesty, perseverance and straight-forwardness are not the norm. That is unless you happen to have the good fortune of working with Cut Entertainment Group, specifically Jeffrey Cooper. He and his company has almost single handily changed my complete take on the entire town. I have the great pleasure to have Jeffrey and his company as the sales agents on my first feature film and we are rolling along at breakneck speed with distribution, foreign sales, etc. He is easy to reach and even easier to talk to. I am more than happy that Jeffrey and Cut are steering our ship. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!"

Mark Blanchard
Director and Co-Writer "A World Away"
Starring Rowan Blanchard, Nadine Velazquez, Mary Lynn Rajskub and David DeLuise

"The testimonials about Jeffrey Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group are for real! Jeffrey is as efficient as he is hard-working. He secured us more than one solid distribution deal to choose from in almost no time at all. Not only that, he was both meticulous and helpful in ensuring successful delivery to the distributor. It was a privilege; I highly recommend Jeff as a trustworthy sales representative!"

Scott Seegmiller
Producer "Atone"

"Jeffrey Cooper of Cut Entertainment Group is a hard working sales agent that acts with precision, transparency and attention to detail. He took our film, and where others had failed over a long period of time - he succeeded in a timely manner. His fees are reasonable and he doesn't waste your money on unnecessary expenses. We'd highly recommend him and will work with him again."

Evangelos Giovanis and George Giovanis
Producers/Directors "Bereave"
Starring Malcolm McDowell, Jane Syemour, Keith Carradine, Vanessa Shaw

"Our experience with Cut Entertainment Group has proven positive for a number of reasons. Jeffrey Cooper is not a guy who just throws things at the wall to see what sticks. His enthusiasm for our film was coupled with a pragmatism and transparency that not only managed our internal expectations for sales, but also for the future management of the property. He understands that the old business model is dead, that inflated expenses are not going to be tolerated, and that genuinely serving his clients leads to success all the way around, not-to-mention collaborations in the future."

Robert Tinnell (Producer), Jeffrey Tinnell (Producer), Josh Stewart (Producer, Writer, Director, Actor)
"Back Fork"
Starring Josh Stewart, A.J. Cook, Agnes Bruckner and Wade Williams

"It’s been a pleasure to work with Jeffrey Cooper (CEG) on our film 'No Good Heroes'. Jeffrey has a solid reputation and is a straight-shooter. CEG found us a good deal with a reputable distributor and now our film’s available at half the Red Box locations in the US! I would not hesitate a minute to recommend CEG and would work with them on future projects."

Johnny Xeno
Writer/Producer/Director "No Good Heroes"

“From our previous association with Jeffrey Cooper of CEG we knew him to be an honest miracle-worker; so having him represent our latest feature was a logical step. Within 2 weeks of signing on he had found a great distribution deal for us - before we had even hit any festivals. The contract terms and fees are clearly laid out and very reasonable. Jeff is always happy to respond to emails or calls and quickly becomes a trusted part of the team: I would say an essential for any indie film looking for representation.”

Michael G Clark
Producer “Dark Highlands”
Starring Junichi Kajioka, Mike Mitchell and Brian Cox

"Jeff Cooper and Cut Entertainment Group" got us a deal faster than most sales agents got back to us. I will most definitely will be seeking out Jeff for sales first on all of my projects moving forward."

Peter Odiorne
Writer/Producer/Director "The Middle of X"
Starring Nicky Whelan, Colin Egglesfield, Sammi Hanratty and Jason Gray-Stanford

“Jeff Cooper found a deal for our film in under two weeks with a very reputable distributor. He was easy to work with, responsible and accessible, and his arrangement with us was fair and transparent. Jeff has my highest recommendation.”

Jeffrey Bartof
Producer "The Middle of X"
Starring Nicky Whelan, Colin Egglesfield, Sammi Hanratty and Jason Gray-Stanford

"When we were deciding on who would be our sales representation for our film, “ALPHA WOLF,” my producing partner Wes Caefer came across Jeffrey Cooper’s CUT ENTERTAINMENT GROUP. After a few phone calls and emails, we decided to sign with them and we’re very happy with the decision. Within a few days, Jeffrey had the project in front of prospective buyers and real offers on the table for territories. We’ve found him to be fair and straightforward in our business dealings and I would recommend anyone with an indie film to consider Cut Entertainment Group as a sales representative."

Kevin VanHook
Producer "Alpha Wolf"
Starring Casper Van Dien, Patrick Muldoon

"From the start Jeffrey was a straight shooter. He tells it like it is and knows the market extremely well. He was able to secure our US distribution within a few weeks of signing and we are thrilled with the deal he got us. I highly recommend Cut and Jeffrey if you want to see positive results with your project."

Jeffrey Reddick
Writer/Creator of the 'Final Destination' franchise

"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"
Starring William Sadler, Jeff Fahey, William Forsythe

"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"

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
"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
Writer/Producer/Director "THE REVEREND"
With Rutger Hauer

“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!"

Neil A. Wentworth Producer/Director Hell’s Tomb
Lions Gate (US)
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 getin 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

"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
Producer of 75 Degrees in July (US VIDEO RELEASE)

"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."

-- Haig Demarjian
of Zombastic Productions, Inc.
co-Producer/co-Writer of DIE YOU ZOMBIE BASTARDS!

“Thanks Jeff's for all your hard work and also for your common sense approach to distribution contracts which revolutionize selling films for independent producers.”

Ralph Lliteras

"CEG has been nothing but straight forward, honest and professional from our first conversation. Their personal interest in our movie -and us as filmmakers - put us at ease during the whole distribution process. I look forward to our future relationship."

Brian Reid
Producer/Actor Silo Killer (US VIDEO RELEASE)

"CEG opened opportunities for "Mole" to reach a much wider audience". I was very impressed with how quickly CEG produced results. Jeffrey Cooper was easy to work with and dedicated to finding the best market for my film."

"Within a matter of months, Jeffrey Cooper was able to secure a domestic DVD release for our film, as well as sell foreign rights on the feature. He knew exactly the right markets to approach with our material and matched us up perfectly with interested buyers. Very fast, very efficient, very knowledgeable. We knew with Cut Entertainment group on our side, our film was receiving the best representation possible."

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.”

"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."

"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."
