About Shaun

Shaun Michael Goldsmith is a highly trained screenwriter and story consultant, whose feature-length screenplay; “Cold Autumn” was recently optioned in LA. He is a Nicholl fellowship semi-finalist and an experienced script reader with contests, writers and production companies in both the United States and Canada.

His brands include compact, elevated thrillers and high concept action films, focusing on minimalist style narrative and a highly structured approach, while emphasizing character, plot, style and theme.

Based in Toronto, Canada, he is currently developing three projects: a feature thriller taking place on the high seas: “Peril,” a treatment for a film set during the Iran-Iraq war titled, “The Hatred of Others” and an upcoming non-fiction book: “Structure Sells.”

His website is www.parallaxlens.com.

Unique traits: Nicholl Fellowship semi-finalist, capable of working on brand and on assignment and currently seeking representation. My style focuses on layered, rich characters with clipped, authentic dialogue and strong visual flair.
