Scott found his calling as a child in a New Jersey movie theater when he saw STAR WARS for the first time (thanks, Mr. Lucas). Yup, he wanted to make movies. As a result, Scott spent his formative years learning everything he could about filmmaking and "the biz."
After attending the University of Wisconsin and Florida State University's graduate film program, Scott moved to LA where he landed his first big Hollywood gig... pushing a cart in the mailroom of the talent agency ICM. He later served as an agent's assistant where he developed the industry required "very thick skin" and the ability to swim with sharks.
Since those early days, Scott has steadily worked behind the scenes (and keyboard) as a producer and screenwriter. He penned the successful SHARK ATTACK trilogy of horror films which not only achieved cult status but also was used as the inspiration for a popular beer-drinking game by the students at San Diego State University and for a hit club song by the German industrial music band Synthetic Adrenaline Music (SAM). Not quite an Academy Award, but still something that makes him smile.
In addition to working on narrative films, Scott has produced numerous documentaries and "behind the scenes" featurettes for the various studios. He has created Blu-ray/DVD "special features" and EPKs/promos for dozens of feature films, TV series, and animated titles. He also co-produced and co-directed the feature-length documentary NECESSARY EVIL: SUPER-VILLAINS OF DC COMICS for Warner Bros and DC Entertainment.
As the founder of Rabid Badger Entertainment, now headquartered in Atlanta, Scott continues to pursue his love of narrative and documentary filmmaking, developing and producing feature films and TV series as well as creating original content.
He also runs marathons, but that's a story for another time.
