Award winning Director Shaun Piccinino @ShaunPiccinino talks with Will Roberts @ActingUpRadio

Shaun Piccinino – Director – Lady Driver

Acting Up Radio talks to award winning Filmmaker & Television Director Shaun Piccinino

Our guest today on ActingUpRadio.com is award winning Filmmaker and Television Director Shaun Paul Piccinino.

He has been pursuing his passion of entertaining through the lens of a true fan of film & television. Since his move to Los Angeles from Northern California in 2001, he has worked in just about every aspect of the business.

From acting, to action coordinating, from scriptwriting to producing, from editing, to visual effects, all the way to feature film directing, Shaun has become a well rounded filmmaker.

A few early achievements include the hit SPIKE TV series, “Deadliest Warrior”, where Shaun not only directed many episodes, he also portrayed Scottish hero William Wallace.

RECENT NEWS:

Lady Drivers: In theaters in the beginning of Oct:

  • Lady Driver – Actor Grace Van Dien

    Lady Drivers: When a rebellious teen embarks on a solo summer journey to connect with her roots, she finds herself in a new world, geared up for the ride of her life, and discovers she had the drive in her all along.

OTHER FILMS: 
“American Fighter”, a gritty action film for Forrest Films (Theatrical) and Warner Brothers Home Entertainment.  “Lady Driver”, a film about a 16 year old young lady who dares to become a Circle Track Car Champion Driver in a male dominated sport, and “Roped”, a rough and tumble Cowboy Rodeo film also for Forrest Films and Warner Brothers Home Entertainment.

Shaun also recently directed another feature film.  A race car comedy called, “Wheels Of Fortune” in the vein of “Cannonball Run” and “Talladega Nights” for Forrest Films & Esx Entertainment.

Shaun’s most recent work includes directing six episodes for an upcoming science fiction action series called, “Salvage Marines” staring Casper Van Dien and Armand Assante.

*Shaun is on the short list for many more upcoming projects as well.

DIVERSIFY OR DIE!

Shaun is not your average director, as he has years of experience in many areas within film and television productions, something that many directors do not possess. This gives Shaun a special understanding of most departments, what they do, the intricacies, as well as their day to day struggles and how to over come them. This really helps in production team building and reacting appropriate to problems should they arise on set. A very important key, to a smooth show.

Wes Stevens: Some new insights from the ugly world of P2P auditioning (articles is from 2016). Interesting days ahead: “They have essentially taken over the job of a talent agent, and are NOT treating their talent according to the principles true talent agencies do. In the process, they are putting real talent agencies at risk – the real workers who fight for the talent. It has to stop.”

Acting Up Radio, Radio for Actors & the film industry.

Weekly Actors Radio Broadcast. : This Week: Stuntwoman, Actor–Angela Meryl 

Angela Meryl—Stuntwoman & Actor!

Angela Meryl - Stuntwoman - Actor - Writer

Angela Meryl – Stuntwoman – Actor – Writer

For stuntwoman, actor–Angela Meryl, the answer to the “what next?” question that one is frequently asked following a live performance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, was quite obvious: “You do your best to put out a book that inspires others do what you do, even better.”

Following the spring of 2012 season she spent in the country of Turkey, working on the blockbuster smash, Skyfall, Meryl—an award winning, Hollywood stuntwoman for nearly two decades now, then took on the new title of “author,” with the release of STUNTS: THE HOW TO HANDBOOK…  Secrets From An Award Winning Hollywood Stuntwoman.

Well received by a long list of media outlets including Entertainment Weekly, The Tom Joyner Show, The Buzz Bissinger Show, The B Smith and Dan Show, NPR’s “Tell Me More,” Black Enterprise Magazine, Essence Magazine, Upscale Magazine, The Philadelphia Enquirer and more—the book thoroughly chronicles Meryl’s experiences in the business.

It begins with an accounting of her experience on The Oprah Winfrey Show, which took place during the eve of the finale season. Part I then goes on to reveal the intricacies of the embodiment of her work, including a plethora of tried and proven techniques that have allowed her to become the celebrated stuntwoman she is today.

Then in Part II, Meryl offers to all others the nuts, bolts and often untold secrets for success in the stunt business, Angela+Meryl+Stunts+book+cover+Photo+XXXXXX+Publicationswhere she frequently doubles such A-list names as Beyonce, Halle Berry, Rihanna,Vanessa L. Williams and so many more. As a result, she is unequivocally qualified to answer “YES“ to the two pertinent questions one must always ask any giver of advice: #1. Have you tried it? #2. Did it work for you?

Meryl, a former model and make-up artist from Willingboro, New Jersey, received her first stunt gig alongside actor Sinbad, in the movie First Kidd. The game changer occurred when she came crashing through a glass table in the opening scene of Kill Bill Volume I, while doubling Vivica A. Fox. That performance garnered industry wide recognition and applause from peers in the business and fans to this day of the Quentin Tarantino directed cult flick hit.

In Meryl’s world, everyday life beyond the paramount role of motherhood to an elementary aged daughter includes the elements of proper diet, exercise and rest for constant training and playtime daily. As a result, she continues to reign supreme when it comes to crashing vehicles, jumping off rooftops, repelling from helicopters, swimming the deep blue seas or the murky water of the Hudson Bay behind the faces of Hollywood’s finest talent on the big screen and the silver screen.

“Kevin is the consummate professional. he is one of the most ethical, intelligent, talented, pro-active, pro-actor people I’ve ever known. Kevin’s extensive experiences, passion and ability to communicate make him the best person I know to assist actors. Hollywood is a business that has a lot of unspoken and ever-changing rules lead to a lot of mistakes which cost actors time, money and emotional strength. To have someone like Kevin on your side to help you get through Los Angeles without having to make all of the same mistakes… is invaluable.” Lonnie Hamerman, Casting Director: Without a Trace, Monk, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Mr @BillyDaMota, #Casting #Director talks to @ActingUpRadio – Pay-for-Play Auditions for Actors, PAYOLA?

Billy DaMota, Casting Director, Director, Writer, talks to ActingUpRadio.com radio about the recent article in Hollywood Reporter: “New Hollywood Economy: Pay-for-Play Auditions for Actors Gain Dominance.”

This 33 minute interview was done via Skype and without interruptions.

Check out this amazing interview with Billy DaMota and his take on how Hollywood WAS and how it is now, and how actors can change this landscape.

Coming Soon: Billy Damota’s new book:

“Why do you care?” or “Why make such a big deal?” Yes, I could stay silent or uninvolved. Even taking the position that I could never personally engage in the racket that I am about to talk about here, why should I care what other people decide to do, even if it is illegal, unethical, or unprofessional?

The answer is because I believe that as a casting director, the payola scheme in Hollywood directly affects me – and not in a positive way.

Screen Shot 2016-04-03 at 3.43.52 PMI love my profession, I love the art that so many of my colleagues create with their talent, I love the actors without whom I would not have a career or a livelihood, and I personally believe that casting directors and actors deserve much more credit than they receive from their peers.

I think that casting directors are being hoodwinked. They are being led down a path of ethical and professional doom by an insidious and unscrupulous swindle which has learned how to manipulate both the casting and acting communities for its own gain. In all of this, everyone suffers. Actors, who work so hard to get on the radar of those who can hire them are now paying a hefty sum to pass through the pay-for-access toll booth. Misguided casting directors and their staffs are being exploited in an ugly and greedy undertaking that is pushing our profession further down the road of ethical failure and even further away from recognition by the entertainment industry for our legendary accomplishments as casting directors. When casting remains the only main title profession not recognized by the Academy for an Oscar®, do we need to create more obstacles?

I am writing the book as a wake-up call to the industry as a whole. I want people to see how damaged the current state of our profession has become with the sincere hope that we can make the changes that will put us all back on the right track.
