About Shawn

Shawn Anthony’s career got underway as an award-winning Las Vegas Illusionist; he landed behind the camera doing consulting on a variety of films requiring knowledge in magic and performance art. This is what ultimately led Shawn to writing and directing his first feature film, couple that with his knowledge of stunt work, magic, photography, and his keen eye for detail, and you can see why his path as a director was set.


Shawn’s first project SoulMate True Evil never Dies, which has received wild acclaim in the film industry and has propelled him into the spotlight as a visionary Director received 8 nominations and took home 4 awards at the 2012 World Music and Independent Film Festival. Shawn took home two awards for SoulMate True Evil Never Dies for Best New Director and Best Cinematographer. Shawn followed up SoulMate with two more feature Films “Vampires Rise of the Fallen and The American Werewolf Project”


in March of 2013 Shawn made history with SoulMate and Vampires, by having both his films accepted at the renowned Hot Media International Film Festival where they both swept the festival winning the following awards: Best Horror Film (SoulMate True Evil Never Dies) Best Action/Thriller Film (Vampires Rise of the Fallen) Best Director (Shawn Anthony for SoulMate True Evil Never Dies) Best Screenplay (Shawn Anthony for Vampires Rise of the Fallen) Best Actress (Jessica Felice for SoulMate True Evil Never Dies) Best Actor (Daniel Ross for SoulMate True Evil Never Dies) Best Supporting Actress (Nikki Estrage for SoulMate True Evil Never Dies) Best Supporting Actor (Johnny Alonso for Vampires Rise of the Fallen)


Shawns love for the Horror and Fantasy genre of film have led him to draw inspiration from many of the greats including Tim Burton, Clive Barker, John Carpenter, and Wes Craven. "My intention is to not gore my audiences to death, but to really scare the S#@t out of them with a good story and their own imaginations" says Anthony.


Shawn currently writes for several cable networks. From Eric Morse, author of The Camp Crystal Lake Novels: “I have found the next great horror filmmaker and his name is Shawn Anthony. Of all the filmmakers of this generation he is the one that combines story and characters the best.” Here are some examples of his work
