Shanna was a good student. Not a science or math person. It took her awhile to find her “art.” She was creative, but what about practical skills? She played a lot. She loved creating imaginary worlds and stories. Her family didn’t have a lot of money growing up. Her mom would give them some sheets and say, “go play in the woods and come home before dark.” Shanna got into acting, and got into the production side of it pretty quickly. Bottom line she’s better at the production part. She is a really good organizer, and this played into her functioning better behind the camera than in front of it. She saw the magic of what had to come together to make it all happen. What about the idea of being alone in these imaginary worlds? Shanna didn’t actually do it alone. She would recruit people and assign roles.
