Scott Devine, P.G.A.
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 films. As a result, Scott spent his formative years learning everything he could about moviemaking 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, director and screenwriter. He penned the successful SHARK ATTACK trilogy of horror films which not only achieved cult status, but which were also used as the inspiration for a popular beer-drinking game by the students of 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 of which Scott is very proud.
In addition to working on narrative films, Scott has also produced numerous documentaries and "making of" featurettes for the various studios. He's created
Blu-ray/DVD "special features" and EPKs/promos for dozens of feature films, TV series and animated titles. He also produced, wrote and co-directed the feature-length documentary "Necessary Evil: Super-villains of DC Comics."
As the head of Rabid Badger Entertainment, now located in Atlanta, Scott continues to pursue his love of narrative and documentary moviemaking, 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.
