Scott Charles Stewart
Director Scott Stewart got his start working as a visual effects technician for motion pictures. As a visual effects artist at director George Lucas's famed company, Industrial Light & Magic, Stewart worked on films such as "Mars Attacks!" and "The Lost World: Jurassic Park." In the early 2000s Stewart co-founded his own well-respected visual effects company called The Orphanage. Throughout the 2000s, his award-winning company did the visual effects work for some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters, including "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Iron Man," as well as the first two movies in the "Pirates of the Caribbean "franchise. By 2008, however, Stewart was itching to direct. In 2000 he directed an independent short, "What We Talk About When We Talk About Love," based on a famous short story by author Raymond Carver. However, Stewart didn't get the chance to direct anything else for close to a decade. That all changed in 2009 when he was given the opportunity to write and direct his first feature film--the 2010 fantasy thriller "Legion." The film was a modest success at the box office, and in 2011 Stewart followed it up by directing "Priest," a science-fiction horror movie based on a Korean comic book of the same name.
