SHAWN EASTRIDGE - @yayshawndorman
Shawn’s love for movies kicked off at a young age with repeated, back-to-back viewings of Back to the Future, Return of the Jedi and Superman II. His obsession for the artform has only grown through the years. His first foray into the world of podcasting was as a guest host on Words with Nerds, co-hosted by fellow Nerd Party host John Mills and John’s partner-in-crime Craig Sorrell. This led to a full-time stint hosting Missing Frames for The Nerd Party, which has given Shawn ample opportunity to discuss his favorite subject. His lifelong ambition is to tell stories for a living, but if that doesn’t work out, he’s perfectly content with rambling on and on about movies for the remainder of his days.
In case you’re wondering, Shawn’s Top 5 favorite films are:
1. Before Sunset (2004, Directed by Richard Linklater)
2. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001, Directed by Peter Jackson)
3. The Empire Strikes Back (1980, Directed by Irvin Kershner)
4. Rocky (1976, John G. Avildsen)
5. E.T. the Extra Terrestrial (1982, Directed by Steven Spielberg)
