SHANE HURLBUT, ASC is an accomplished cinematographer who graduated from Emerson College with a Bachelor of Arts in Film. The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) nominated Hurlbut's first feature, The Rat Pack, directed by Rob Cohen, for Best Cinematography in the category of Motion Picture, Miniseries or Pilot Television. Hurlbut recently finished shooting the feature "Men of Valor," which details the covert operations of the US Navy SEALS. Directed by Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy for Bandito Brothers and Legendary Pictures, this highly anticipated film was shot primarily on the Canon 5D Mark II camera and will be the first HDSLR full-length feature released by a major studio.
Hurlbut's versatility, passion, work ethic and expertise give him the opportunity to work within any production budget. Of the 15 features Hurlbut has lensed, "Terminator: Salvation," directed by McG, was the largest in scope and marked a visual reinvention of the Terminator franchise. Hurlbut and McG first collaborated on the sports genre film "We Are Marshall"; that film showcased the true events following a plane crash at Marshall University in West Virginia. "The Greatest Game Ever Played," directed by Bill Paxton, was a period golf story that incorporated new age camera movement to jazz up the typically laconic sport. "Drumline," directed by Charles Stone III, featured college show-style marching bands in the south competing for the Bayou Classic.
Hurlbut balances shooting features with commercial work, using his diverse skill set to maximize short form campaigns. His credit list includes: Visa, Coca-Cola, Verizon, American Express, US Navy, Discovery, Big Love, and Deadwood. Hurlbut has also worked with music legends The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, and Smashing Pumpkins. In response to his mastery of the Canon 5D and trailblazing spirit, Hurlbut has become a coveted public speaker.
