Steve Cainas

Production Coordinator

In a career spanning more than two decades, Steve Cainas has worked as a production coordinator on numerous television shows and movies, including True Detective, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, and LOST.

As a production coordinator, it's Steve’s job to manage the overall logistics of a shoot, which includes everything from booking locations and securing camera equipment during pre-production to keeping the crew on schedule and under budget during filming. It’s a role that requires incredible organizational skills, patience, and the ability to face whatever creative and technical challenges may lie ahead on any particular day.

Steve graduated from Full Sail's Film program in 1992 and got his start working on films like The Hudsucker Proxy and Sweet Home Alabama. In 2004, he was asked to coordinate the pilot episode of ABC’s LOST; he ended up working on the show for its first three seasons. Steve's experience on LOST broke new ground, and he has since become a sought-after creative force in his field. Steve was inducted into the Producer's Guild in 2009.
