Daily Inspiration: Meet Shun Powell Jr

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shun Powell Jr.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I initially got my start while doing public speaking in middle school, I was apart of “demonstration speaking” where I would teach/show a panel of three judges how to create simple special effects makeup appliances like a small cut or bullet hole. During high school, I began to learn visual effects on youtube and became hooked since then. Today I have a full-service production company and studio lot here in Milwaukee, WI.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road has not been easy due to being in a smaller city where your a little more limited to what is around you or what you can create with the things you have access to.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I specialize in cinematography, special effects makeup. And photography. I am most proud of my short film I recently completed called Lizard boy!

What makes you happy?
Creating makes me happy as it gives me the chance to express my creativity and it helps me connect with others on a better level.
