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.

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.

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.

Jenn was a great guest and one of the best things I loved about this interview was the fact that if you ask people about what they love to do most in life ( passion ) and  you will find they are doing just that in their career. This seemed abundantly clear in talking with Jenn and I know she is a force to be reckoned with… keep watching her! 

Jenn also told me off air that she has a project that she is working on that is in post production, BUT she gave me a couple of links to take a peek into this project called  “Playing with Beethoven”
