FILMMAKERS SCOTT BECK & BRYAN WOODS first met as sixth-graders in their hometown of Bettendorf, Iowa. After discovering a shared interest of cinema, the duo began collaborating on stop-motion movies with their Star Wars action figures. This collaboration continued into high school, where they directed numerous shorts and their first feature films. In 2001, Beck & Woods formed their production company banner Bluebox Films, under which they would write, direct and produce films, commercials and television content.
As teenagers, Beck & Woods were shortlisted as two of the top 50 directors (out of 2,000 applicants) for Ben Affleck & Matt Damon's PROJECT GREENLIGHT series on Bravo. While still in college, Beck & Woods' work caught the eye of MTV Films, which offered the pair a feature film development deal. In 2010, the duo wrote, directed, and produced IMPULSE starring Chris Masterson (MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE). After an international festival run, IMPULSE was acquired for worldwide distribution by Shorts International where it became the #1 most downloaded short film in its first week of release.
Beck & Woods later wrote and directed an original scripted pilot for MTV and executive producer David Gale (ELECTION). In 2012, the duo were listed as "The Top 100 Writers on the Verge" by Tracking-Board.com. They are currently in post-production on NIGHTLIGHT, a supernatural thriller produced by Herrick Entertainment and Oscar-nominated producer Michael London (MILK, SIDEWAYS).
Beck & Woods are members of the Directors Guild of America (DGA). They are represented by William Morris Endeavor, Madhouse Entertainment, and Manatt, Phelps & Phillips.
