Biography

Starting out under the wing of his father Thomas L. Fisher, himself a special effects artist since the 1970s, Scott R. Fisher began his career by stepping immediately into some of the biggest and most visually ambitious projects of the 1990s. Lining the beginning of his tenure in the business with Arnold Schwarzenegger action/sci-fi movies, his work on the Best Picture Oscar-winning film "Titanic" (1997) helped the younger Fisher expand his reach to new kinds of cinematic exploits. Attachment to a film of such grandeur allowed Fisher to explore other realms of cinema, lending his eye to subtler forms of special effects magic. Ultimately, Fisher's talents came in most handy on the set "Interstellar" (2014), for which he won an Oscar all his own for Best Achievement in Visual Arts. Special effects ran in the family for Scott R. Fisher. Following in the footsteps of his father Thomas L. Fisher, Scott entered the SFX coordination trade in the early 1990s, working on some of the biggest name action-adventure films of the era: "Total Recall" (1990), "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" (1991), and "Batman Forever" (1995) among them. Things changed for Fisher when he worked on what would turn out to be a Best Picture Academy Award winner, "Titanic" (2007). After augmenting his reputation with "Titanic," Fisher began working in a wider variety of genres, and with a new league of filmmakers. He collaborated with Steven Spielberg on the science fiction films "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" (2001) and "Minority Report" (2002), and the dramedy "The Terminal" (2004). Fisher also dealt in areas of stronger gravity, working on period pieces like "Memoirs of a Geisha" (2005). Granted, his genre-friendly sensibilities never quite faded away, as Fisher took on franchise projects like "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (2006), "Twilight" (2007), "X-Men: First Class" (2011), and Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012). It would be another Nolan picture that would afford Fisher his greatest success yet: Fisher won Best Achievement in Visual Effects for his work on the sprawling outer space movie "Interstellar" (2014).
