Matt Scott returned to USC in 2014 as the IMAX Specialist supporting the newly opened Michelle and Kevin Douglas IMAX Theatre and Immersive Lab.

Matt began his career and has worked extensively in post-production, focusing mostly on documentary and non-fiction projects for television and theatrical release. As a Post-Production Supervisor he was often called upon to build entire post departments from scratch, designing the workflows, implementing the technology and managing the department.

In 2010, after many years as a Post Production Supervisor, Matt transitioned into IMAX feature documentaries on the film Born To Be Wild. His role in IMAX filmmaking expanded to include creating the digital field workflow on the feature Island of Lemurs: Madagascar where he spent half a year living and working in Madagascar.

Matt is currently a part time lecturer in the Division of Media Arts & Practice teaching courses on giant screen and IMAX filmmaking. He is also the faculty advisor of the Large Format Cinema Club (LFCC) and is currently working on a untitled IMAX documentary about Pandas due for release in 2018.

Matt is a member of the Producer’s Guild of America and a former documentary programmer for the Slamdance Film Festival. He is a graduate of the Division of Cinema and Media Studies at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
