Shaune’s interest in Special Effects started when he was 13 years old and he saw An American Werewolf In London. Monsters was what he wanted to create…
After years of making rubber monsters in his bedroom and experimenting with making 8mm films of his creations, he finally started in the film industry in 1988 at the age of 20 working in the field of Special Make-up Effects.
Shaune continues to make Creatures and Prosthetic Make-ups and has been a key member on some of the top grossing films in the world, films such as: Harry Potter 1 - 8, Star Wars Episodes 1 & 2, Stardust, Sunshine, Sleepy Hollow, The Mummy, The Fifth Element, The Davinci Code, Captain America: The First Avenger, World War Z, Grabbers, Jupiter Ascending, Dracula Untold, Game Of Thrones Series 4 & Avengers: Age Of Ultron to name a just few. Whilst working on Hellraiser 4: Bloodline, Shaune got the opportunity to direct some of the special effects sequences and also got to direct Johnny Depp for a sequence in Sleepy Hollow.
As well as being a Prosthetic make up designer, Shaune is also a multi award winning short film maker. You can view all of Shaune's short films on his website below, they are: The Grave, Skeleton Crew, Uninvited & Red Light.
