Name: Scott Morgan
Lives in: Beverly Hills, California
Occupation: Director, Producer and Screenwriter
Unique traits: After helping orphans in China and other Asian nations for 15 years, and Directing the Korean cast for Playing Solitaire, I was a top expert on China film markets. I spent the last year in Asia setting up a unique film hub for serving the Chinese studios, meeting with Wanda, Fosun, Alibaba, and other mini majors. Hired to consult studios there. My mentors include the Co Chair of Paramount Pictures Barry London, and Freddie Fields (Glory, Midnight Cowboy, American Gigolo, other Academy films.)
Film by Fulcum Films TV Writer-Producer-Director This terrific boyhood adventure film follows two boys who want to be galactic gladiators to save the planet. They foil a plot by a bad developer to ruin a forest. Lots of pratfall comedy. This is in full pre production and casting, is funded at $7+ million, has a Chinese and American cast, and will be the first film shot in both English and Chinese. Already approved by Chinese studios for distribution.
Television by Fiji Films Writer-Director Fell-funded sitcom pilot and two episodes for Australian-Fiji-India tv. It was "Cheers at the beach" with an international cast
SAM N' ELLAS
Television by Sam N' Ellas Productions Writer-Director This was the very first 3-camera sitcom shot in High Definition. My being an expert in this way of shooting years ahead of everyone else led to my getting the cameras from Panavision and the teams from James Burrows (Cheers) to crew it. I was then an advisor to studios into their High Def future. The pilot did not get picked up, but got a lot of attention and made me the expert in the medium for sitcoms. It also starred a few famous actors like Bob Manden of Soap.
THE VIOLENT KIND
Film by Violent Kind Productions Writer-Director A group of Young Nuns goes anti-faith and spends their last days doing all the fun sins they never enjoyed. The great shootout in the end with the gangs is classic cult. This was the very first film shot in LA with the new high def cameras. I had an award winning DP, and all of Panavision watching as we used their huge new High Def Cameras. This led to my Pilot directing in High Def
Film by Fulcrum Films + TV Writer-Producer-Director An insane girl captures a man for revenge and her motive is revealed through her torturous final day with him. This film won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress awards in all 3 of the only 3 film festivals it entered: NY, LA, Vegas Video and Film Festivals. And it led to my Directing Pilots for tv. I shot the whole film in 3 days on 35mm film, and most shots had to be captured on only one take, then move to next angle. A "perfect" execution, it was called, of cinematic style.
