Exclusive – Kevin Scott on the making of Halloween Ends
Who is Kevin Scott you ask….
Kevin Scott – 2nd Unit Director / Stunt Coordinator joins me to talk about the making of Halloween Ends.
Kevin has over 25 years of experience as a stuntman, stunt coordinator and 2nd Unit Director encompassing all aspects of action filmmaking. Kevin’s extensive resume includes blockbuster films; Battleship, The Matrix Reloaded, Fast & Furious (1), Swordfish, Mission Impossible III, Spiderman 2 & 3, Bourne Supremacy & Bourne Ultimatum, I Am Legend, Ironman, The Kingdom, The Finest Hours etc.
His 2nd Unit Director credits include; Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriot’s Day, Alpha, Baywatch, Mile 22 and Netflix’s Project Power.
Kevin’s goal is to create action that seamlessly expresses or enhances the story created by the Director & Writer(s). He focuses particularly on supporting the Director’s vision. “The action community has the best job – we get to play hard, have fun, maximise adrenaline, and safely push physical limits. We should work our fingers to the bone to provide the audience the entertainment, experience, escape or education of the stories we tell”.
Kevin believes the partnership between the action community and VFX world is paramount. “VFX enables us to enhance the action and create amazing visuals to give the audience the best possible viewing experience” says Kevin. Every moment created for TV; Feature Films etc., ultimately becomes a part of history. The advent of streaming has excitedly expanded viewing opportunities for the entire World.
Assembling the best possible team is his mantra. “You’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with” is Kevin’s leadership approach. There is an amazing diversified wealth of individuals in the entertainment world. Truly working together as a team can create amazing results.
It is a true honour to work beside and support the entertainment world’s incredible filmmakers and their vision. Kevin fully believes that “True Collaboration Inspires Greatness.”
