Contact and Info
I am Scott Barker, a professional editor, passionate story teller, adventurous filmmaker and hobby knife juggler. I directed and edited an award winning documentary titled Spinners based in the unusual and entertaining world of street corner sign spinning. I've been working professionally shooting and editing documentaries, promos, and music videos ever since.
I grew up in Southern California and can't shake the stereotype. I have a thirst for the ocean, traveling, and the stories of the diverse people I meet. I love sailing, surfing, photography, city adventures, and the heat of summer.
My passion comes through in story telling, whether behind a camera or in an edit bay. I am based in LA, but often shoot and cut documentaries, interviews, and promotional material all around the world from the Yucatan to West Africa.
With a passion for discovery and story telling, I constantly find myself working on challenging and rewarding projects. Seeing a story come alive in the edit bay is what drives me through any obstacle with creative and effective results. Finding the truth in a documentary, a promise to inspire captured in a promo, or verbally conveying (sometimes exaggerating) death defying adventures. I love seeing a good story inspire others.
