Anthony Scott Burns Signs to Troublemakers

Anthony Scott Burns is a self taught Canadian filmmaker. Deeply involved and fascinated by film from a young age, Burns would build small models that he called his 'parallel universes'. By the age of 16, he began working on films, and created his own award winning shorts just two years later at the age of 18. He started his professional career as a graphic designer a MTV where he quickly outgrew his job title and took over creating/directing all the on-air interstitials in Canada. 


After his work on television was recognised internationally, he decided to return to directing and filmmaking. Anthony is part of the new breed of filmmakers who believe in doing whatever necessary to get his vision on screen - He shoots, edits, composes, animates, designs, renders, and grades most of his work. He has released 2 albums as his musical alter ego PILOTPRIEST, directed dozens of commercials, directed and shot episodes of television, and is now developing multiple feature films with Hollywood studios. Anthony has joined Troublemakers for european representation for commercials and music videos.
