As a teenager growing up in England, Scott Arundale spent an inordinate amount of time in art houses watching classic European films. Fellini, Antonioni and Fritz Lang were among his favorites but it was after watching Jean-Luc Godard’s Alphaville, considered one of the first cyber-punk film noir, that Scott knew that he wanted to become a filmmaker.
He is a product of N.Y.U. where he studied film production as well as U.S.C. where he earned an M.F.A. in Producing at the Peter Stark Program. The first short film he produced there was a finalist in the Student Academy Awards. The following year, Scott produced a feature film that won an award at the Sundance Film Festival.
In 1997 Scott was Executive Producer of the CD-Rom game entitled Encyclopedia of Clamps which won Best Foreign Title at the Tokyo Multi-Media Grand Prix.
But it is editing that has always been his passion and when things went digital, Scott jumped back into the fray. “The technology of film had not really changed much over the years, but when non-linear editing arrived, I was hooked”. Since then he’s edited T.V. shows and feature films, documentaries and music videos. “It’s a very exciting time to be working in the industry right now because things are moving so quickly and we have to adapt to the ever-changing landscape”.
Scott is a tenure-track Professor at Chapman University, Dodge College of Film and Media Arts located in Orange, California. He is an Apple Certified Trainer in Final Cut Pro and an Avid Certified Trainer for Media Composer. Scott is an associate member of the American Cinema Editors (ACE), University of Film and Video Association (UFVA) and the Digital Cinema Society (DCS).
