About Me

Award Winning Screenwriter and Film Director. I've directed 1 feature film and multiple short films. I'm reasonably priced and willing to travel. I use my strong writing background to evaluate the script, gain clarity of the producer's vision, and if necessary provide feedback before coming on set to ensure the best version of the film is captured in production. Actors and crew who've worked my sets have said that I'm easy to get along with and they'd love to work with me again. I specialize in comedy but am comfortable with all genres. I DO NOT double book. I give each project the attention it deserves because I CARE about what I do. Call/Text/ or Email me, and let's make something great!

I have been in the industry since 2015.

Great to work with! Organized, expedient, and knowledgeable.

I had the pleasure of working with Shelton during one of my film productions. Shelton has a lot of experience working on film sets, has great organization and time-management skills, is punctual, and very hard-working. He would be an asset to every film production as a director or crew member.

Shelton is a great director and a natural born leader. Every set that I have been on with him he always creates a great safe comfortable creative working environment. He brings the best out of his cast and crew. If any of the cast and crew has a suggestion or input on they can make the see the scene or character better he will listen and try it out. I highly recommend him and I will always work him.

I had three pleasure of working with Shelton on the business side and talent side. I'm someone that has been on big production sets and after being on set with Shelton, I couldn't tell the difference. His attention to detail and willingness to listen, made him a cut above the rest. Every actor and crew felt at ease during production, which made filmmaking that more enjoyable. Shelton's sense of humor allowed the talent to feel comfortable on set, while his professionalism brought out the best in everyone. If you're looking for that director with something extra special to give, stop scrolling.

Shelton is a very well put together and creative director. He brings a lot of life to set especially his humor. Always allowing his crew to have their creative input on scene. Shelton works tirelessly to bring his visions to life that can be shared with just about anyone. He is excellent at commanding & communicating at all times. Never a dull moment with this man.
