Hey, I'm Scott!

Denver, Colorado

I have been actively working on documentaries for about seven years and have had a life long passion working with cameras. 

I was raised on the fringes of the Jehovah's Witness culture as my father joined the religion when he was about thirty. I was coerced into baptism as a teenager. I gave the religion a proper go for a few years in my early twenties, auxiliary pioneering as a part-time minister (50 hours per month), before and during university. After photography school I moved to Ecuador to see first hand how the religion operated internationally. I wish I had a video camera then because, wow, that was a life changing experience! Witnessing first hand how they operate in poor countries or in their terms, "Serving Where Need Is Greater" is what I've come to see as "cultural imperialism." It was ultimately what lead me to leave the religion...of course on top of a long list of nonsense that they teach and use to manipulate people.

After Ecuador I left the religion permanently. I had made some close friends in the religion, many of whom have since come out as well. Together some of these very creative people and I are working on this project to: give a voice to silenced former Jehovah's Witnesses, shed light on the dark side of their shunning practices, and make some fun celebratory films highlighting artists.
