I HAVE MANY DIFFERENT TALENTS
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.
*Shaun is also very well trained in Martial Arts. Piccinino is an AAU National Champion in traditional Japanese Karate, is a 4th degree Black Belt southern Shaolin Kung Fu and 1st Degree Black Belt in Okinawan Karate. He has been able to use these skills in films, television and over 40 video games to date. He even appeared battling atop a moving train on ABC’s hit show, “Revolution”.
