Scott Leger is a Director and Screenwriter whose work has screened at Cannes Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, SeriesFest, and Palm Springs International Film Festival. Drawn to filmmaking after a horrific mountain biking accident in high school derailed his illustrious Junior Varsity sports career, Scott transferred his manic passion from the field to the frame and hasn't exhaled since. And his collarbone healed up quite nicely, thanks for asking.He would later go on to drop out of Hampshire College to live at home and wait tables while immersing himself in visual storytelling and screenwriting. Eventually he got around to re-enrolling and graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor of Freaking Arts degree. Scott considers his existentially meandering college years as well as his playfully mischievous youth to be the perfect incubators for his authentic brand of storytelling.Finding himself too weird to be a normal person and too normal to be a weird person, Scott sought refuge in the arts, hiding at the end of a camera lens and a blinking cursor. His days of mountain bike stunts are [likely] over. His credits include Sony Pictures, MTV, and Bravo. He resides in Los Angeles and will continue to do so until they give into his demands.e: scottlegercgg@gmail.comv: https://linktr.ee/ScottlegerAlso, you can check out my documentary The People of Brixton, on Kwelitv here: https://www.kweli.tv/programs/the-people-of-brixtonDamien Swaby Social Media Links:Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/filmmaker_damien_swaby/Twitterhttps://twitter.com/DamienSwaby?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5EauthorWebsitehttp://filmmakingconversations.com/This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/4532542/advertisement
