Courtney Scott is a Brooklyn-based filmmaker, travel correspondent, and DJ. She is the Founder of Courtney Scott Studio, a global videography studio specializing in visceral visuals, evocative storytelling, precision editing and expedited turnaround to meet the increasing demands of the digital space’s most valuable asset: video. Her clients include EDITION Hotels, Six Senses, Google, PUBLIC Hotel, SIXTY Hotels, SO/ Hotels and Barcelo Hotels. She has shot the world’s most accomplished artists from Madonna to Nile Rodgers, to Q-Tip.
Courtney established her career over a decade ago as the Senior Editor for Travelocity, appearing as a travel reporter for a variety of broadcast outlets including CNN, ABC News, MSNBC and NBC’s Today Show. She is a seasoned on-camera personality appearing in over 400 national broadcast segments and hosting branded travel content for Expedia, Scripps Network, Porsche, Thrillist and many tourism campaigns. It wasn’t long until she began working both in front and behind the camera; producing, shooting and editing projects for a global network of hospitality clients, Michelin chefs, documentary and commercial clients.
At the core, Courtney believes that all artists are conduits for emotion; this ethos is infused into each of her creative projects. She has witnessed audiences brought to tears by the moving image, cultural barriers bridged through the written word, and such profound celebrations of life played out on the dance floor that she is left with the indubitable belief that music is, indeed, the closest thing to magic. In 2018, Courtney had the honor of being featured in the book, Firestarters, How Innovators, Instigators, and Initiators Can Inspire You to Ignite Your Own Life. Courtney has never been more grateful to wake up every day and be an instigator for others to ignite their lives. She is consistently humbled by the outrageously talented artists with whom she works, and the profoundly beautiful moments she shares through her lens and her music.
