When you make your money writing for children's television, the darker material you omit has to come out somewhere. In Shane's case, it was in three scripts he wrote for a horror anthology series on Showtime. Of the three, Ashes To Ashes was the one whose horror was most psychological in nature—and the one most appropriate for a low-budget short film. It was, in fact, Shane's solid, professional screenplay that attracted so many other professionals to the project.

Shane has written eight feature-length screenplays, as well as many television episodes, comic books, short stories and magazine articles.
