Eli grew up in Alexandria, Virginia and developed a passion for filmmaking from movie nights (on LaserDisc, of course) with his father, and his persistence from his mother whom he watched build a business from the ground up. After attending Temple University and graduating with a degree in film, Eli and his frequent producing partner, Adam Drescher, started Suite Spot in 2004. For over fifteen years, Heitin has been co-captain of a ship that’s amassed quite a bit of treasure in the form of repeat creative collaborators, a best-in-class production team, and yes, awards, most notably a Cannes Lion and an Effie Award. Eli has also earned the respect of his peers with inclusion in the Producer’s Guild of America. Beyond all of the accolades, Eli’s proudest achievements are the many long-term partnerships he’s cultivated throughout the years which have been fueled on mutual appreciation, enthusiasm, and understanding.
