Shawn Lovering is an independent filmmaker based in Toronto, Ontario.
Shawn’s penchant for unearthing the beautiful, the painful, and the raw, manifests in a body of work rich in cinematic aesthetics and honest, accessible narratives. With a focus on strong visuals and even greater stories, his collective experiences influence his work — namely his previous practice as a social worker, and studio background as a designer and art director.
Whether he’s directing a team, operating the camera, or editing, Shawn immerses himself in every project employing a journalistic approach, be it a documentary, branded content film, or commercial work. Based out of Oakville and Toronto, Shawn has traveled throughout North America in search of stories for clients big and small. Select clients include: The NFL, Kraft, the NHL, Mosaic Sales Solutions, Shaw Communications; the CFL; Leon’s Furniture; Structube; and BMO.
