Scott Renyard is a film maker and a scientist. A twist of fate changed Scott’s life when he took a temporary job on the film, The Boy Who Could Fly, in 1985. At the time, Scott was working on a Master’s Degree in Natural Resource Management and Regional Planning when he took a job catering to the stars to pay the rent. Thirty years later Scott has worked on more than 100 film and television projects in many capacities including writing, directing and producing.

As a screenwriter, Scott’s first writing credit was last episode of Neon Rider, “What’s Up Doc?” for CTV/AVR Productions. In the years that followed, Scott sold spec scripts and doctored a number of others. In 2001, Scott co-wrote and directed the one hour doc, “Project Cougar” for Discovery Channel. The following year he directed the six-part series called “Check it Out” for Access Television.

Scott then wrote, directed and produced the award winning nature documentary, “Who Killed Miracle?”. In early 2014, Scott completed the remaster projects for “Living River” and “Indian Food Fishing on the Fraser River” and finished the feature documentary “The Pristine Coast” which launched at the 2014 Vancouver International Film Festival. Scott just completed two feature documentaries based on the Canadian Federal Inquiry regarding the rapid decline of the Fraser River Sockeye. The Unofficial Trial of Alexandra Morton is a film about one of the world’s most outspoken independent scientists regarding open net pen fish farming. And the second film, entitled The Trial of An Iconic Species is a look at the testimony of scientists that reveal some startling findings regarding the management and science regarding the rapid decline of the iconic Sockeye salmon. Scott continues to work and develop other projects and has a sequel to The Pristine Coast and an uplifting story about a group doing their best to bring back Pacific herring to the British Columbia coast.
