JAKE SCOTT (Director) made his feature film debut with Plunkett & Macleane, a period action-comedy starring Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Liv Tyler. He also directed Welcome to the Rileys, a drama starring Kristen Stewart, James Gandolfini and Academy Award winner Melissa Leo.

An acclaimed director of commercials, Scott helmed three short films for HBO Voyeur, a groundbreaking multimedia campaign for BBDO NY.

Scott grew up in London, where he inherited the family passion for film and was a stand-in in Ridley Scott's Alien. He moved to Los Angeles over 20 years ago and it didn't take long for his own name to become synonymous with some of the most revered commercials and music videos of recent years. Scott gained early prominence by directing R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts," which won multiple MTV Video Music Awards, netted a Grammy Award nomination and was inducted in the MVPA Hall of Fame in 2005. He has also worked with artists such as U2, No Doubt, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, The Strokes and The Rolling Stones, to name a few.
