Filmmaker / Author / Instructor
SHANE STANLEY'S career began in front of the camera at 9 months old before becoming a two-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and launching his own company, Visual Arts Entertainment. Best known for Executive Producing the #1 Box Office hit, Gridiron Gang for SONY Pictures starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Stanley’s resume spans well over three decades where he's worked in every aspect of the business, working on movies and television shows as an editor, cameraman, writer, producer and director.
Today, while still busy with a bustling career in Hollywood, Stanley has turned his attention to helping those seeking to break into the “business” and has just released his new book, "What You Don't Learn in Film School: A Complete Guide to (Independent) Filmmaking" where he offers a wealth of knowledge from several aspects of the industry focusing on educating future storytellers and helping them bridge the gap between what’s taught in the classroom and what they’ll experience in the real world. The book is available now at Amazon in paperback and eBook formats.
