Look Out! ~ He's up and coming...
29 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Look out for him... and look out for "The Lackey"... it's well worth the watch, especially for all of you 70's Throwback, Grindhouse, Tarantino, Indy Film Fans!

Simply put, I've had the privilege to work with, as well as study, many "A" list directors along with many up-and-comers in both big-budget Film & Television productions. That said, Mr. Shaun Paul Piccinino is an up-and-comer who will reach the highest of levels. "Mark these words."

Shaun is easy to work with, fun to work for, and he understands the craft of acting to where the performers can synchronize & feed off of his vision, thus helping him achieve it! This shows throughout "The Lackey." Furthermore, not only is his stamp all over the film, Shaun happens to be an excellent Editor as well, winning the "Best Editing" award for a Feature Film (The Lackey) at the 2012 AOF Film Festival! When I think about it, Shaun Piccinino's skill and upward path is reminiscent of one of the Independent Films world's finest: Mr. Robert Anthony Rodriguez! …Whereas he does it all, from start to finish; he loves to be hands-on, he keeps the on-set-energy strong, he directs, he edits, he writes… and he allows his creative spirit to engulf him fully into his Film Making Craft.

I look forward do future projects from this young man!
