IFP/Chicago is pleased to present the short films of chicago filmmaker Scott Smith. As Creative Director for ad agencies Leo Burnett and Element 79, Scott has developed many award winning campaigns that have played an integral role in brand building for clients like Disney, Quaker, Hallmark, Miller Brewing, Sony, and Kellogg's. In 2000, Scott began writing and directing his own commercials, as well as several award winning short films. He hasn't stopped since. In 2004, he was named one of the top three directors (out of nearly 1,800 competitors) in Project Greenlight's directing competition, a Budweiser Discovery Filmmaker award nominee, as well as named "Best Director" at the 2004 Chicago Community Cinema Awards.
Most recently, Scott's documentary short Waiting on God was named an official 2007 selection of the Beverly Hills Film Festival. Currently, he is in production on a feature documentary called Being Bucky, as well as development on the feature film Ink, which he co-wrote with Eric Anderson and will be directing.
