The past few years have kept Piccinino busy as he directed and completed 5 feature films and 2 different television series.
In 2016 Shaun was at the helm of “For Honor”, an epic World War 2 accounting of Jimmy Dolittle’s heroic retaliation mission following the attack on Pearl Harbor. This was a passion project for Shaun as his grandfather Arturo Piccinino served in the Navy during the 2nd World War.
Shaun switched gears in 2017 by writing and directing a gritty throwback action film in “American Fighter” (Lionsgate/Grindstone) that explores the world of underground fighting in the year 1981.
In 2018 Piccinino directed two films in “Roped” (now streaming on Netflix), a romantic tale of city girl meets cowboy at the Rodeo and “Lady Driver” (now streaming on Netflix), the story of a 16 year old young woman who dares to become a Race Car Champion in a male dominated sport.
Early 2019 saw Shaun dive head first into comedy with “Wheels Of Fortune” (now streaming on Netflix) an over the top romp in the vein of Zoolander, Talladega Nights and Dumb and Dumber.
Later in 2019 Shaun completed directing and producing the first season of a new science fiction television series called, “Salvage Marines” based on the popular novel series, “Necrospace” starring Casper Van Dien and Armand Assante.
Shaun's most recent work, in 2020, is the Netflix Original film "A California Christmas". A fun holiday rom-com starring real life husband and wife Josh Swickard (General Hospital) and Lauren Swickard (Dear White People) took the streaming juggernaught by storm as it quictly climed to number one on the charts as the most watched film on Netflix in the world.
In March of 2021 Lionsgate & Grindstone Entertainment will release Piccinino's action drama, "American Fighter" lead by Tommy Flanagan and Sean Patrick Flannery in the US.
