  • Filming

    With two decades of experience in film production, Scott has participated in numerous feature productions globally, including "The Darkest Hour," "Blaze," "Resident Evil," "Time of Pioneers," and "Salvage Marines." He has a diverse range of expertise, having worked as a camera operator, 3D stereo specialist, DIT, on-set editor, drone pilot, and director of photography. Scott's extensive skills and knowledge have allowed him to develop a cutting-edge studio, offering complete production and post-production capabilities while minimizing costs and space. This studio is a testament to his ability to design and implement sophisticated solutions for complex projects.








    Create a concept delivering a clear and effective message, storyboard and budget, assemble a production crew and smoothly run through principal photography leading to paralel decentralized cost effective post production. - A simple recipe for a good video. Technological sophistication and simplicity in execution is the way "Safety Meeting Society" - a production house Scott is in charge of runs it's show.

    Combining experience acquired in both Broadcast TV and feature film Scott began creating custom solutions for known problems combining best of both worlds.


    Designing complex production pipeline schematics for multicam 2D/3D productions takes perfect understanding of video workflows from in camera color space throughout the entire video village and post all the way to a DCP or positive. Scott provides consultations or turnkey solutions for productions of any scale especially if it involves non trivial solutions. Such as set up a 4K streaming system in a bear den you can not service for 6 months. Or create an aerial camera solution capable of operating on north pole.

    Throughout his career Scott invited as a keynote speaker on multiple events. "South by Southwest", "RICE University of Taxes", NABB and many more.


    Organised and attended workshops for both beginner cinematographers and industry professionals. Such as a workshop on 3D Stereo production on "CPC Film Production Convention", "Lafayette Academy of Arts"


    And at some point spent a year in an academy teaching and creating curriculum for teenagers on basics of film production.

    Flying is both Scott's passion and profession.


    Flying for over 10 years as a certified unmanned systems operator in different countries around the world is what developed in to a desire to fly and set on a path for Private Pilot License.
