Shawn Haswell

Manager, Production & Facilities

Manager, Production & Facilities 

Shawn is responsible for the cameras, portable audio recorders, animation software and almost every other piece of technology a student uses in RTA production classes. He shares the responsibility with his staff, the ever-brilliant members of the Production Training and Support team or "labbies". He also provides leadership and oversight for many of the school's production activities.  An RTA grad and a former labbie, Shawn has worked for various radio and television broadcasters throughout his career and as such brings a balanced perspective to his role.  In addition to strong technical skills, he has a solid background in branding and promotions.  Shawn developed a keen eye for detail and a love for tight messaging by working on several award-winning promotional campaigns during his time at CHUM and later CTV.
