Shannon was an absolute godsend! Introduced to us by friend and camera operator Keith Neuendorf, Shannon took on the role of First Assistant Director at the request of Director, Val Gameiro, even though she had no prior experience. Val said “if she’s been running her own businesses for as long as she has, she has to be a go-getter. She can learn on the fly!”
And so she did. From the very first day, Shannon has been indispensable, not only in the role of AD, but helping with Location Scouting and Management, Wardrobe and so many other aspects of the film.
We are truly lucky to have her on board, and know that in the future when she pursues her own directorial dreams, the world better beware!
