Since Navid Sanati was 13 years old, he has been passionate about cinema and the affects films have on us. He has been editing, producing and directing for over 15 years, and started Step By Step Pictures in 2008 with the goal of becoming a motion picture studio that helps up coming creative artists and industry professionals, while working on unique independent films & shows.

Currently, we are working on a slate of feature films and TV shows. From horror/thriller to sci-fi fantasy and westerns.

If you would like to work with our team or are interested in becoming a partner, please send us an email at and we’ll be happy to get back to you.

Step By Step Pictures LLC is dedicated to Navid’s cousin, Hamed Khatami, who advised him to make this company with or without him, and start making movies and telling stories. His sudden passing on January 7th 2015 has only made this dedication a stronger one. They shared one simple belief about movies, and that was to communicate emotional stories that showcase the human spirit and its journey in life. Regardless of fictional or non-fictional stories, we find ourselves on the screen with characters that we can connect with. That was our goal and now our mission.

“Once you crack the script, everything else follows.” – Ridley Scott
