Personal Quote:

You become more involved in your movie as being "real life" and your actual life becomes more like a dream state. You begin to experience those moments in your film as if that is what your life is. This, by all means, allows you to get through endless hours of editing and video review. I think my buddy Jon said it best, "A good crane shot is better than sex." See more »


Shawn's emergence into the film industry began with an attempt to save his dance studio Planet Funk. He filmed town hall meetings and court sessions during his battle against locals who were trying to shut down the studio. He decided to turn the footage into a documentary to further help his cause and, in the process, fell in love with film making. See more »
