Laurence Shanet has had the honor of dancing with both Britney Spears and Bob Dole, helped teach hundreds of New York cab drivers how to flip the bird, and been intimate with an 800-pound black bear.
An award-winning director, writer, and creative director, he has created work that you’ve seen on your television, computer, and phone screen. He is a past winner of the CFP’s Young Director Award at the Cannes International Advertising Festival, Cannes Lions, AICP, Clios, One Show, and Best in Show at the ADDYs. And he was listed among the industry’s Top 10 “Directors to Watch”. When not creating commercials and content for major brands (such as Starburst, Walmart, Visa, Disney, LG Electronics, Powerball, KFC, Volkswagen, Pepsi, Skittles, and Green Giant), Laurence works in the entertainment industry, where his pilot episode of the television thriller “Cuff” was just named an official selection at both the New York Television Festival (NYTVF) and the Independent Television Festival (ITVF). He also smells good.
