Personal Quote:

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 »
