I’m a New Zealand writer and video director. A published author (the best-selling indie novel "Exit" from Biblio Publishing, USA), I also write comic book scripts for the long running UK comic "Commando," and have vast experience in advertising and content copywriting. I was also creative director of an advertising company in New Zealand for 15 years directing hundreds of television commercials, corporate videos as well as creating online advertising content. My philosophy has always been about delivering excellent quality deliverables on time and on budget, but also assisting clients in discovering innovative and engaging ways to tell stories and inform audiences. In my lifetime I’ve picked up a Bachelor of Business Studies Degree in Marketing, along with a penchant for collecting cats.

    “i asked Shane for some tuition on Premier Pro. He is a very good tutor, he explained everything very clearly, he had prepared well before hand and very quickly I got the hang of it all. I am delighted with the help Shane gave me and will definitely be using him again.”


    “Great person to work with. Made extra time to fit in my project as I had a strict deadline. Applied a level of expertise and creativity to the editing that I am really pleased with... However he went one step further and really thought through the message of what was being said and reflected that in the way he edited the video... that to me is a rare gift indeed. I hope to be able to work with Shane again in the future”

“Did you know I spent the whole of my fifteenth year in my room?” Briar’s impromptu, mid-afternoon confession stirs up distant memories of the lonely time she spent trapped in her home; suffering agoraphobia — fear of open spaces. Now it’s six years later. She’s free, but the year’s isolation has left serious personality disorders; disorders which will resurface as she relates her own story, and that of those in her orbit; Melodie, a pretty valley girl who Briar desires to be, Justine, her olde
