BIOGRAPHY

Fueled by a lifelong interest in special effects work, noted Visual Effects Producer Scott Coulter has over three decades of experience in this field, having worked on more than 200 films which have integrated nearly every conceivable aspect of Special and Visual Effects. His credits span across numerous feature films, including "The Expendables", "Conan the Barbarian", "Dogma", "My Favorite Martian", "The Crow", and many others.

Scott Coulter began his lengthy film career as a production assistant on George Romero’s classic horror anthology, “Creepshow”. As his first love was special effects makeup and monsters, he worked on many FX films of the era - "A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master", "Pet Sematary", and many that are now considered cult classics, "Street Trash", "Slime City", and "Class of Nuke'em High" among them.   While working on "The Crow", Coulter saw Jurassic Park, and was struck by the power of the groundbreaking digital visual effects. Seeing the writing on the wall, Scott immediately took a six-month sabbatical, learning everything he could about computer animation. He then began to supervise & produce Visual Effects.

In 2001, Coulter opened Worldwide FX, to meet the visual effects needs of Millennium Films.  He further expanded the facility in 2009, by opening a second branch in Shreveport, Louisiana.  Over 15 years, the companies have serviced hundreds of films, including "Olympus Has Fallen, "Automata", "The Mechanic 1&2”.

He returned to Independent VFX Producing in 2016, overseeing mainstream films - "The Belko Experiment" and "Speed Kills"
