More about Shawn Peters:
This year Peters was named one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film, last year he was a Creative Capital Moving Image Award Recipient. While the list of accolades and awards are a testament to his pursuit of excellence, they are also a reflection of the passion and pride he brings to the work.
Having worked as cinematographer for visionary director Terence Nance — among other works, he lensed Nance’s lovesick, doc/fiction An Oversimplification of her Beauty and his more recent, gorgeously inscrutable Swimming in Your Skin Again — Shawn Peters is no stranger to pushing perceived boundaries in storytelling.
