Mary Lou Sandler is a photographer, cinematographer, producer, director and owner of 3 cubed studios LLC with husband Justin Sandler. Their award winning film, “Welcome to Where You’ve Always Been” (cinematographer/co-director/producer) appeared in 21 festivals in 2016/2017 and will be distributed on Shorts TV (cable/satellite) and Amazon Prime in late 2017. 

Once a working actress, video game stuntwoman, and fitness cover model, her focus now is to inspire and empower women to heal through the arts. 

Her commitment to empowering women inspired her to establish www.femalefilmmakers.org (a female filmmaker group to "Empower and Employ Each Other"), and her empathy moved her to the documentary film “The Empty Womb,” as cinematographer/co-producer. She has also published a photography book called, “The Beard Book,” with proceeds benefiting breast and testicular cancer charities.

Mary Lou is the director, producer, cinematographer, writer, and host for the upcoming documentary, “Caregiving Cancer: The Silent Heroes" as well as the  producer, co-director, co-writer, and cinematographer for the upcoming documentary, “MANtimacy.”

I have done a few different projects with 3 cubed studios - videos, head shots, etc. Not only are they super professional, they are very fun to work with. I immediately felt I could be myself around them. Mary Lou is very skilled at bringing out the best in you and capturing it on film; she also has a true artist’s eye. I felt very comfortable from the get go working with them, and the results were also excellent ; I’ve gotten a great response from my potential clients and on social media etc; in fact I got new consultations coming in the very same day my husband and I posted some new pics on Facebook! Overall, the experience has been very positive, from the “who” to the “what”. I would not hesitate to recommend 3 cubed studios for your next project.
