Anyone who knows me understands that I'm in love with the entire process of filmmaking and telling stories.  


Be it rain or shine, be it daytime or nighttime, in the winter or fall, driving fast through the streets, or on a soundstage, be it action or drama... 


I love directing! I just love my job making movies. That's why anytime I get to be on set I truly count myself incredibly lucky and never take the experience for granted. This is why I get so excited when developing, writing, planning future projects and collaborating. I'm happy to report I have several exciting projects on the horizon. From action packed adventure to romantic comedies to the star filled galaxies of science fiction!   


I've been so blessed to have grown up in an environment that always supported the arts and my persuit of them. With that I was always told to aim high, to shoot for those stars in the sky, so I do... With those stars shining bright, let's work together and catapult our vision together. Like my grandmother used to tell me, "let's shoot higher then the highest star."

 "Shaun Piccinino is a bright light; his energy on set keeps the cast and crew inspired while making the days fun and enjoyable. Shaun's nickname is the "energizer bunny." His boundless energy truly is a sight to behold and absoluetly pushes the team to do their best work while making the days fly by."




"Of the top 2 directors on my "favorites" list... Shaun Piccinino is both of them. And, of the 4 criteria used to determine my list (technical, creative, collaborative... and just being a f#cking joy to work with), only Piccinino checks every box. Seriously...  I would do a web only Flex-Seal commercial with this guy.
