Who We Are
Rocket Science Talent represents original talent for the entertainment industry. The agency was founded in 2009 by veteran talent agent Shawn Burns following 10 years with renowned agent, Sandra Marsh. While at the Marsh agency, Shawn became the first talent agent in the world to specialize in representing international Visual Effects, Special Effects, and Make-Up Effects Department Heads. Beyond creating a roster with this specialized talent, and advancing their careers; Shawn was influential in institutionalizing effects talent as department heads, while leveling up their agreements, and normalizing front end credits.
Shawn's clients have advanced the industry with their innovations and leadership over the years, and are recognized for these contributions by their peers; while some are the next generation of leaders. Shawn continues this specialized representation of great effects talent at Rocket Science Talent while expanding into other areas of interest to include Concept and Storyboard Artists as well as promoting Writers, Directors, and Producers with technical backgrounds.
