NEED FOR SPEED

SCOTT WAUGH (Director/Executive Producer/Edited by) is the son of the original Spiderman, Fred Waugh.

Scott was drawn to filmmaking at a young age. Since earning a B.F.A. from the University of California at Santa Barbara, he has worked as a producer, director, editor, cameraman and stuntman. In 2006, he co-founded Bandito Brothers, a full-service studio that creates, produces, manages and distributes authentic, high-octane and immersive audio-visual content, with his business partner Mouse McCoy. In January 2012, Variety named him one of its "10 Directors to Watch."

Waugh's feature film directorial debut, "Act of Valor," which Relativity Media released in February 2012, opened #1 at the U.S. box office and went on to gross more than $80 million worldwide. The film was an unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking, starring a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs, alongside actors Roselyn Sanchez, Alex Veadov, Jason Cottle and Nestor Serrano.

As a commercial director, Waugh's niche is showcasing human stories within incredible action. He has worked with three of the five U.S. military branches: the Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. Waugh developed advertising media with Electronic Arts for their games "Battlefield 3" and "Medal of Honor," and has also worked with other well-established brands such as Ford, Mountain Dew, BFGoodrich, NASCAR and the NHL.

As a producer, Waugh focuses on inspirational and entertaining films that are fast-paced and full of excitement, exhibited by his box-office successes "Step Into Liquid," "Dust to Glory" and "Waiting for Lightning." "Step Into Liquid" received the Audience Award at the Maui Film Festival, the Seville Film Festival and the Whistler Film Festival, and "Dust to Glory" received Best Action Film of the Year by Men's Journal.

Waugh became a stuntman in 1982 and retired in 2005. He has been involved in more than 150 film and television productions in various capacities and gained his first-hand filmmaking knowledge from directors Michael Mann, Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone while on their sets.

In addition to his film credits, Waugh was the president of Stunts Unlimited for three years, the most prestigious stunt organization in the world. During his tenure, Stunts Unlimited was involved in such box-office hits as "Spider-Man," "Talladega Nights," "24" and "Bad Boys II." Under Waugh's leadership, Stunts Unlimited received three consecutive Emmy Awards for Best Stunt Coordinator.

Augmenting his success as a filmmaker and business executive, Waugh collaborated with his father to invent the 35mm helmet camera and an innovative handheld camera called the Pogo Cam. Designed to place the audience in the action, the Pogo Cam produces a dynamic and vibrant viewing experience. Waugh has operated the Pogo Cam on over 30 productions, including the hockey sequences in Disney's "Miracle."
