His favorite movie growing up was Scarface. Along with other classics, films such as Deer Hunter and Psycho gave Shant the inspiration to work in the Entertainment Industry.
During his college tenure he interned at a variety of entertainment companies such as MGM Studios, Polymorphic Pictures and the Austin Film Festival. After graduating college in three years, Shant decided to pack his bags and head west.
Shant got his start working as a Production Assistant for America’s Funniest Home Videos. It was during this time Shant became inspired to write a couple films of his own. DEAD MEAT, which he co-wrote with Kevin, advanced to the top ten percent in the comedy category at the Austin Film Festival screenplay competition in 2013 out of over 8,000+ entries and was a semi-finalist in the 2014 Scream Craft Horror script contest, advancing to the top 64 out of about 1,000 entries. In 2014 GYM RATZ: A TAIL OF TERROR won best screenplay in the Fantastic Film Festival Screenplay Competition.
He is currently collaborating on several other scripts. These films are in various stages of completion and he is also working on a documentary about his MMA prodigy cousin who is currently competing to represent team U.S.A. in the 2016 Olympics.
Shant recently published Abs 101 a weight loss program for busy individuals where he sells it at gymskool.com
