Bonnie Kanner grew up in California as the oldest of six children and was considered the “responsible” one. She had her first job at age 12 and by 17 had moved into her own apartment. At 24, she married her best friend and they were together for 11 years. When Bonnie’s father passed away from cancer, something inside drastically changed and decided to have a more fulfilling life—one that would make a difference in people’s lives and leave a mark on the world. In 1997 she divorced, leaving her with a 4 and 8-year old. As a single mother, Bonnie yearned for a job that paid well and had flexible hours so she could be with her children and provide for their needs.
Bonnie produced four charity golf tournaments called “Shoot for the Stars” for Jewish Big Brothers and Camp Max Straus and the Hollywood Post Production Community. Bonnie filled the tournaments with players from Sony and Disney and was a big success. Doors began to open, leading to several job offers including a position in the Visual Effects industry. Bonnie worked for over 8 years with a company and received over 80 major screen credits for theatrically released films, serving as the Executive Producer.
