SFB writer, producer, and director Sean Whitley frequently works as a freelance producer (field-, line-, and post-), scriptwriter, and occasional director for a wide variety of broadcast projects in such genres as true crime, documentary, reality TV, paranormal, animation, travel, and cooking.
Some of his past work has aired on such networks as Spike TV, The Cartoon Network, TLC, SPEED Channel, MTV, Starz/Encore, Reelz Channel, TCM, HGTV, GAC, Chiller, Ride TV, Destination America, and The Cooking Channel.
He has extensive on-location experience and has field-produced shoots in such locations as Manhattan, the Florida Everglades, Elvis Presley's Graceland, the waters of the Atlantic surrounding Newfoundland, and the track of the Long Beach Grand Prix to name just a few.
Sean has also adapted and written the English-language adaptations for dozens of animated and live-action international properties such as "One Piece," 'Ghost In The Shell: Arise," and "Shin Godzilla," the latter of which fulfilled his lifelong dream of contributing to the cinematic legacy of everyone's favorite giant radioactive lizard.
He believes that a sense of humor in the film and TV industry is a must and is nice to the elderly, small children, and animals. Having worked with both Bigfoot and Godzilla in his professional life , he's still on friendly terms with both.

I've worked with Sean on many projects - from HGTV home shows to True Crime. Sean is incredibly organized, detail-oriented, and a hard-worker. I've hired Sean to manage Post, write scripts, field produce, research and more. He's familiar with a wide array of topics and even niche areas that have made him the go-to expert on our team. Not only is Sean multi-talented, he's a great guy to be around. Whenever I have a project that warrants hiring out-of-house, Sean is the first person on my list to call.... and you should, too! - Kim Clemons, Showrunner/Writer at AMS Pictures
