BULLITT is excited to announce the addition of director Scott Weintrob. Weintrob’s brand of high action storytelling can be seen in his global spots for brands including Audi, Ford, Hyundai, Lenovo, Cadillac, Volvo, and Acura. His work on Walkers for Abbot Mead Vikers BBDO was awarded at Cannes, D&AD and the Creative Circle Awards.
"Scott is a unique talent and his impressive work in both short and long-form makes him an ideal complement to our filmmaker roster,” says BULLITT Director/Co-Founder Justin Lin. “On a personal note, I am thrilled that he’s joined BULLITT as his blend of narrative fearlessness and high octane automotive skills are second to none."
“It’s great to be in the company of the directors at BULLITT, and to be a part of a studio that is both massively creative and strategic,” comments Weintrob. “I admire the integrity and intelligence Bullitt brings to the conversation. I’m very excited to be here.”
Scott Weintrob directed four seasons of Top Gear for the BBC (worldwide audience 350 Million) before moving to the US. He united his experience with cars and passion for story to build a depth of career that has earned industry recognition. Weintrob’s early career as a photographer, and his penchant for visual storytelling, is featured in the documentary “An Evening In Space,” an intimate glimpse into the artistic vision process of the celebrated auteur David LaChapelle. His fashion short with Oscar winner Kim Basinger conveys the depths of knowledge one gains from raising a child. Both were commissioned by Flaunt magazine.
Weintrob is currently helming a definitive streetwear feature documentary on the influence of Bobby Hundreds that was filmed in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Seoul and features interviews with artists including ASAP Rocky and fashion luminaries like Tommy Hilfiger. He is also collaborating with the Oscar-winning company Lightbox Entertainment, (Sugarman, The Imposter and Man on Wire) on a new documentary series.
