Scotty Crowe grew up on Jekyll Island, population 800, off the southern coast of Georgia. While in Atlanta - as a Mathematics major at Georgia Tech - Scotty met John Mayer and became his Tour Manager and author of the johnmayer.com ”Road Journal.” In a world before social networking, Scotty wrote daily updates from the tour that included setlists, photos, and intricately layered pop culture references. Basically, Scotty invented blogging. #NBD
After four years on the road, Scotty made the move to Los Angeles to work in film and television. He did some TV (“Shameless,” “CSI: Miami,” “Privileged,” “100 Questions” among others) and some theatre (“Diving Normal” – more on this in a moment – “Tape,” and “Marsh Light” directed by John Frank Levey). In 2010, he was cast in David Fincher’s THE SOCIAL NETWORK and the Bill Condon-created-and-directed HBO pilot “Tilda” alongside Ellen Page and Diane Keaton. Condon and cinematographer Guillermo Navarro later called him in for a work session on the BREAKING DAWN films. His girlfriend at the time was never more proud.
In 2008 and 2010, Scotty performed on stage in “Diving Normal” as Gordon – an eccentric idealist who was limited in his ability to relate and empathize with others, but was just looking to be loved and understood. He and the show were both well-reviewed and the experience led him and his producing partner, Philipp Karner, to option the play for a feature film adaptation. In the summer of 2012, Scotty and Phillip produced the script they had developed (with playwright Ashlin Halfnight), each reprising their roles from the play and filmed the movie in New York City with director Kristjan Thor. Shortly thereafter, Scotty went on to work with Ashlin and Kristjan on another feature film, ASTREA, which he also produced.
Scotty is a head mentor for the Young Storytellers Foundation, a script-to-stage program for 5th graders in Title 1 LA County public schools, and has volunteered with 826LA. He has run a dozen marathons, including the Boston Marathon (his personal record for the distance is 2 hours, 49 minutes, or just barely faster than it takes to watch any film starring Daniel Day-Lewis).
