Scott Silver is a 2002 graduate of Vanguard College Preparatory School and went on to earn his Master’s degree in film editing from the prestigious American Film Institute. In 2008, Scott along with his partner Chady Eli Mattar founded Silvatar Media in Los Angeles. The team has produced two Hollywood thrillers, “Removal” and “Prototype” with a third that is currently in production in Morocco.
Scott initially found his passion through the encouragement of Vanguard IT director Joe Flowers who recognized Scott’s aptitude for telling a visual story. Taking Joe’s multimedia course allowed Scott to discover his skills on modern film editing software and the latest cameras.
“Joe just let me explore and allowed me to find my passion,” said Scott Silver, executive producer at Silvatar Media. “Through that initial experience, it has allowed me to do what I am doing now.” I can not recommend Vanguard enough.”
Scott also credits Vanguard for preparing him to excel in college and making him a well rounded individual that is comfortable dealing with other cultures.
“At Vanguard, I learned how to take ownership of my own education and as a result, college was easy”, said Scott. “Vanguard made think outside my comfort zone and gave me an expansive worldview. I use these skills everyday whether I am on a conference call speaking to colleagues in London, Germany or wherever. I cannot recommend a Vanguard education enough.”
