Shane Dedman is a filmmaker + writer

living and working in Atlanta, GA. They grew up in rural Central Florida, found their outlet of creativity through poetry, drawing, and theatre, and came to the city of Atlanta to further their education. They received their B.F.A. in Photography from Georgia State University in 2016. Their work is concerned with representation and the universalization of creativity. 

After graduation, they taught art in juvenile detention centers, art handled in the South East, and founded Feedback Poetry Collective. After moving back to Atlanta from Berlin, they have since been video based out of space and resource restrictions. They work in collaboration with indie filmmakers and write about their experiences in poetry, creative nonfiction, essay and screenplay formats. Dedman enjoys making music, reading theory, reviewing film festivals for publications, and playing local pool tables while traveling.

Dedman has screened films at local film festivals including LadyFest and Out on Film as well as on Facebook Live and at NOFLASH Film Festival 2020. They are published in Oz Magazine, Wussy Magazine, Analog Cookbook and FloroMancy, and they distribute self-made zines. They have participated in residencies with Welcome Hill Studios, The Ionion Center for the Arts and Culture, Joshua Tree Highlands, and most recently TAR Project. 

Dedman is working on a short film trilogy titled PHYSICAL BODY OF WORK; a love letter to an evolving self.
