I have poured most of my life into other people and I am grateful for it. I truly crave and enjoy encouraging others through my art, writing and film. Many don't know I am a free lance writer and filmmaker. I have had the once in a lifetime chance to help create, direct, produce and assist in shooting two full-length documentary films my heart remains very close to. Like my art, I have been writing as long as I can remember - poems, short stories, screenplays, plays, lyrics for the band I was in, etc. The filmmaking began in 2010 when I began to feel a call to write screenplays. I then encouraged my partner at the time to get into filmmaking. The rest is history. In addition, I have been the public relations manager for a business and not-for-profit I owned for over 20 years, so I have had a lot of experience writing press releases, editing, interviewing people and making/writing/creating films all over the world. Currently I am finally in a position to "pitch" my two full-length screenplays, (you can read them below), after many years of them collecting dust in a dark closet. It has always been a dream for me to sell a script of mine and be an actress in one of my films, or another film, as that was my original major in college - theater. I had the beautiful opportunity to co-write and co-edit the book below, "Live Dead: The Journey", as well as construct the raw art journal aspects of it. Painting, writing, teaching and filmmaking have been my therapy, my core passion for many years. However, until now, I was never able to fully nurture it. Thank you if you took the time to read all this. (If you find typos, message me, lol). Contact me if you need help with a project. The films can be purchased as well, contact me shannonbacon50.com or go to the websites below..
