    The Show Must Go On on IMDB »
  • Sean O'Brien was born and raised in New Jersey, and received his B.A. in English from Ohio State University. Although he enjoys his time behind the keyboard, with five finished feature scripts and more on the way, he prefers being on set with a bunch of creative people, telling honest stories that evaluate the human condition. He tries to instill a strong visual style behind his quirky New Jersey dialogue, and in the end, he always puts the audience first. Sean graduated from Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts with an M.F.A. in Film Production and was nominated for Best Director at the school's end of the year Cecil Awards.
