Ty Scott is a St. Louis born creative who currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. He attended Howard University in Washington D.C., where he graduated in 2014 with a BA in Radio, Television, and Film Production. His artistic inspirations include Spike Lee, Hype Williams, Stanley Kubrick, Johnathan Mannion, and David LaChapelle. His art is also greatly inspired by black life, social issues, internal conflict, symbolism, vibrant colors, and his upbringing in St. Louis, Missouri. The latter played a huge role in the short film, SHOOT BROTHER, his first effort since completing his film studies. Ty was inspired to create the film after the premature death of a childhood friend in his hometown. The film has been shared with and received praise from the Urban League’s St. Louis Chapter, the family of Mike Brown, Janelle Monae’s Wondaland Records, and actor Malik Yoba.
