The Joy Of The Unknown While Filmmaking With Commercial Director Scotty Bergstein.

Commercial Director Scotty Bergstein started out as Ridley Scott’s assistant on the movie “Thelma and Louise”. Talk about a film school like no other. Now he’s a seasoned, sought-after spot helmer. We chat about his process from first getting a storyboard through delivering that edit.

We share the joy of allowing the process to reveal things on set that would not have happened if you didn’t plan properly. Like finding the magic moments between the dialogue. Filmmakers, I know you’ll find this episode inspiring. So check out spots of Scotty’s by clicking his name, or visting
