Leigh Scott

With more than two dozen feature films under his belt, Leigh Scott has been working as a professional writer, director, producer, editor, and cinematographer in the film industry for nearly twenty years.

He attended USC’s prestigious School of Cinema-Television. While in school he obtained an internship working for Roger Corman’s “Concorde Pictures”. At Concorde, he worked in production, marketing and development.

Upon graduation, at the age of 22, he successfully produced and directed his first feature film, Beach House (1996). He followed that up four years later with Art House (1998), a comedy that was an official selection at the Aspen U.S. Comedy Arts festival.

Leigh has always looked to push the envelope in both the business and creative aspects of the industry. He was one of the first filmmakers to encourage digital acquisition over film and embrace digital post production. He trained editors at Warner Bros. in the use of computer editing systems as early as 1994, was one of the first directors to shoot on RED digital cinema cameras, and supervised some of the earliest motion-capture tests and shoots for Microsoft.
