Multi-award winning director Scott McCullough earned over 199 directing awards and honors (Cannes Creative Awards, USA, Tokyo, London, Austin, Brazil, etc.) with some of the largest brands in the world. Prince, Warner Bros. Records, NBC/Universal, NASCAR, Ford, Budweiser, Pepsi, Target, Kumho Tires, Coors Light, General Motors, Chevy, Amtrak, and E.A. Sports (and many more) have repeatedly hired Scott to direct on multiple high-budget projects for multi-billion-dollar corporations - many of which are Fortune 500. One of the defining moments of Scott's illustrious career came when screen legend Paul Newman requested Scott to direct his final filmed appearance, a poignant tribute to the Champ Car racing team.
Sony, NPG Records and Warner Records released the highly anticipated concert film in 2023 "Prince & The New Power Generation: Live at Glam Slam" in which Scott served as director, cinematographer and camera operator as part of the "Super Deluxe Edition Box Set - Diamonds and Pearls". Complimenting the set is the documentary sound check with Prince for the Special Olypics in 1992.
Additionally, demonstrating his multifaceted abilities, he was responsible for creating, writing, directing, and cinematography of Thunder Theater's groundbreaking 70mm NASCAR experience films, "100%" and "No Bull." These pioneering productions, showcased in the world's largest mobile theatre, introduced cutting-edge effects that laid the foundation for the immersive 4-D experiences of the present.
Etching his name into the history of cinema, his creative collaboration with music icon Prince during the pinnacle of the artist's career stands the test of time. His extensive directorial and cinematography skills elevated Prince's videos to new heights of visual excellence, including "Gett Off," "Diamonds and Pearls," and "Sexy M.F.." each awarded Gold RIAA for over $2M sold with many number-one charting films.
Building on his past achievements, Scott has ventured into the realm of major motion pictures, delving into compelling narratives that shed light on previously untold discoveries regarding PTSD during the Vietnam War era in "Captain for Dark Morning," an effects-driven action/horror feature "26 Floors." and several more compelling projects. This shift in focus allows him to explore profound themes and tackle societal issues with his characteristic passion and artistic vision.
