The Early Years
The gift of music is a foundational cornerstone in Scott’s life serving both his passion as a film producer, and as a worship leader. As a young boy growing up in the 70’s, Scott spent his time shooting short films with Super 8mm film cameras and learned to play the drums and guitar. Music and film continued to march hand-in-hand as he became known for his pioneering work within the watersports industry. Scott’s work in watersports 25 years ago has left an indelible mark as he achieved award winning video imagery only achieved by GoPro cameras of today. Scott also made his mark in the competitive sport of barefoot waterskiing winning a National Championship and competing within the professional ranks for many years.
After retiring from professional skiing in 1994, Scott focused on his multimedia production business branching out into a myriad of different arenas that included production in the hunt industry where he worked with mega successful television shows such as Bill Jordan’s – Real Tree Outdoors, Buckmasters and North American Fish & Game. Again, Scott was a pioneer paving the way for the outdoor shooting styles that can still be seen in today’s programming.
Trying to scratch the adrenaline itch, Scott leaped into auto racing where he competed in late model short track racing. Production techniques continued to evolve as auto racing stretched the limits of production equipment where Scott learned about camera auto mounting techniques that would later be used to produce award winning video products for Maxxis Tires and Yamaha Motor Sports.
Back To Music
Somewhere along the line Scott traded in his drums for a Gibson Les Paul guitar. This path ultimately lead him into an opportunity to lead contemporary style Christian worship where he fills his creative gas tank songwriting, singing and playing guitar. Faith plays a vital role in his life as he shares God given passions and gifts through songs.
A Seasoned Vet
Scott’s creative genius is fueled by his lure toward music and his attention to visual impact and detail. The two arts are still working hand-in-hand today. Evidence can be found in the various music videos he has produced over the years, and the attention to soundtrack selections and scores for all his productions. There are just some things that cannot be taught in a classroom. Life experience has provided Scott with the skills necessary to produce your next video. God given giftedness will assure that your video will be great!
