Most of Shane Allen's 11 years of study occured at "The Playhouse West in North Hollywood. "The Playhouse West is like a Gymnasium, a Sanctuary , and a Holy Place all in one room". Other training comes from many acting coaches in Los Angeles and San Diego.
Shane has Stage, Television, and Film Credits.
Shane's first love is Film. "You cannot lie emotionally, no matter how technically perfect you may be on film, If "it" is not in the eyes on a forty foot close up- all is lost."
His goal is to present characters with texture, depth, and realism no matter how flawed. He explores characters psychologically, emotionally, and physically, whether it's the lead or supporting character. "When my friends say, 'That's not you...that's really you?' I am happiest."
"The quest is to allow viewers that moment when they can peek into your Characters emotional reality and be forever affected." I've always said, If you can turn off the volume and stay involved, that actor is living through the moment within the character. It is the moments between words that are the deepest felt.
