Welcome, my name is Shaun Rosa, founder of Makeshift Films and lover of all things creative. This website is a showcase of my work in film and as an overall artist.
I am a filmmaker. More specifically, I am a director of photography and an editor. My mission is to use my professional and practiced eye to create stories and ideas cinematically, which is how I naturally see them. In fact, I was drawn to film and cinema because it allows for personal perspective when communicating this vision.
I am a podcaster. My artistic partner, Marc-Anthony Murray, and I have created an automotive and lifestyle podcast, dubbed Through The Apex. This venture was born from a shared love for motoring culture and provides the space for us to share the headlines of the automotive world, as well as our own personal stories.
I am a DJ. I have been DJ’ing for over 13 years, which is likely where my creative roots stem. I love music and its versatility, but perhaps most importantly, its tendency to be associated with memories. I currently hold a residency at Federal House in Annapolis, Maryland where I have been performing for 5 years.
My goal is not to sell anyone a product, but to share my love and passion for creativity. It may seem cliche, but I want to tell stories - through visual experiences and sound. I want to connect with people, built relationships and CREATE. I am most alive when I can express myself freely and help others cast their vision.
Roots: I was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland where I currently live. I love my city, and I love my state.
Education: I earned a Bachelors in Communication Studies at the University of Maryland.
Work: I am a Digital Producer for the Public Access Corporation of DC, DCTV, where I have been working since 2015.
Car: It is important to know that my favorite car is a Ferrari 458. I currently drive a MK7 Volkswagen GTI. It is a direct extension of me.
