Represented by Elizabeth Dench and Fiona Grant 

Shannon is a graduate of Australia’s national film-school. Her master’s short, ‘SWEET TOOTH’, a dark fairy tale narrated by Cate Blanchett, won the CAPA Prize for Best Fiction and the Nicolas Baudin award in St. Tropez. The film started its festival journey at Cannes ‘Cinema des Antipodes’.

Shannon spent her childhood in Switzerland, then moved to Australia to study and work, and now calls London home.

Contrary to the prevailing wisdom, Shannon loves working with children and animals. Having been a professional actor before stepping behind the camera, she is undaunted by unconventional approaches to crafting strong performances.

Overall, she has a passion for original, elevated stories, especially ones that involve music. She also embraces the challenges that come with technology-enhanced production.

She champions inclusivity and equal opportunity, both in front of and behind the lens.
