Director Biography - Shannon Ford Thompson

Being a film director is not just a form of art, it is a sense of expression, and the satisfaction of telling compelling stories.
It is about escaping and believing in the moment that you are
witnessing and the ability to immerse your viewer as the character's trauma unfolds. For one instant you forget who you are or where you were.

As a director and editor when you can do that, you become the
illusionist of dreams. That illusion could bring the perfect escape to a person in need, and who doesn't want to be a part of helping the
escape even for a brief moment.

You never know who you can inspire... fall in love with... scream in terror at... or even define the impossible. Filmmaking is a passion and it is fun. I hope to one day take you on the ride of your life through my films.

My team is inspiring... My craft has just begun…
