About

Scott Svatos is a Los Angeles based screenwriter and web designer Let's hike!

Thanks for your interest! I am a creative media developer who designs and builds websites, writes movie scripts, draws cartoons, and spends a lot of time outdoors exploring the natural world.

I graduated UCLA Film and Television with a Masters degree in 1997 and began working in new media as a web designer and front end coder. I worked six plus years for Monster.com before going freelance in 2006. Since that time I have continued to develop websites while also getting involved in the film industry, designing sites and doing webwork for industry clients, writing scripts, and making short films. The Ghostmaker, a feature film I wrote for Fotocomics Productions, was produced and later distributed by Lionsgate. Today, I continue to work as a freelance designer, while also penning and illustrating my own webcomic, Grinsane.

I also write screenplays. In 2010, my feature script Ghostmaker was produced by Fotocomics Productions, and the film was later sold to Lionsgate. You can find Ghostmaker on Amazon and Apple, or order it directly from Lionsgate. It's also a regular screener on the Chiller TV cable network. In addition to writing scripts, I have coproduced a couple of short films, and have worked on various film and video projects over the years. I worked on a couple of films for The Asylum (the Sharknado people), and designed websites for them as well.

When I'm not in front of a computer, I'm usually outside (a pretty nice place to be when you live in Utah). I have been a volunteer naturalist and wilderness guide for several outdoor organizations, and designed media for them as well. I recently did the graphic design for the field guide Wildflowers of the Cottonwood Canyons, available now at REI.

If you have any questions or comments, or for work inquiries, please don't hesitate to send me an email.

Thanks for visiting!
