Cylan Shaffer was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. After graduating at the top of his high school class, Cylan went to the University of Arizona on a full academic scholarship to study mathematics. He discovered his passion for media arts during his first year through taking a number of film courses. The following year, Cylan became one of twenty students selected through portfolio submission to join the BFA Film and Television Production program. After admission, he dedicated his work towards raising awareness on a number of social issues ranging from body image, social justice education, and LGBTQ rights. Cylan developed a larger appreciation for dance during college by working with several dance majors on a number of his projects and taking modern and jazz courses. Cylan graduated earning his BFA degree in May 2013. He plans to move to LA and pursue a career in directing, assistant direction, dance on camera, music videos, and film festival programming. Cylan's recent dance on camera piece "Ljósið" became an official selection and made its world premiere at the Palm Springs International ShortFest on June 23rd, 2013.
