One way to look at the fascinating and multi-faceted showbiz career of Peter Shaw is that both Shaw and the late Steve Jobs worked with the A-list Hollywood director Ridley Scott.Jobs hired Scott to direct Apple’s famous 1984-flavored Super Bowl ad that same year promoting the new MacIntosh. That apocalyptic, visionary video “became a sensation,” the Los Angeles Times wrote last year, “helping to put Apple on the cultural map and launching the modern Super Bowl ad.”Seventeen years later, Peter was on location in Richmond, Virginia, with Anthony Hopkins, Julianne Moore, and Gary Oldman, filming the Ridley Scott-directed Hannibal, a picture which grossed over $165 Million in the USA alone and was the sequel to the 1991 Hopkins starrer The Silence Of The Lambs.

Few would turn down the career path Shaw then had of a budding film and TV star, but he had something else in mind, something deeper.
