Director Scott McCullough Making His Big Screen Debut With "Captain for Dark Mornings"
- Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019
LOS ANGELES | By Clay Ayers
Director Scott McCullough tapped to helm his first major feature, Captain for Dark Mornings – the book adaptation about Shad Meshad, the young psych officer (in 1970 Vietnam) who made it his life’s mission to address and codify the symptoms of what would come to be known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
McCullough began his directing career as an early pioneer of music videos for artists like Prince. It was eventually McCullough’s hands-on approach and cinematic style that would grab the attention of Fortune 500 companies and make McCullough a trusted, recognizable name among the top tier of commercial directors.
Apart from McCullough’s award-winning commercial work and PSA’s (Veteran Suicide Awareness, featuring Martin Sheen, among others), it was McCullough’s extensive narrative work with talent like Christopher Backus (Mindhunter), Patrick J. Adams (Suits), and multi-Emmy® award winning Michelle Stafford that he credits for his transition into features.
Captain for Dark Mornings is represented at 2019 American Film Market (AFM) with Lift-Off Global Network Limited. Further information about Scott McCullough at http://www.scottmccullough.com
