VEVO RELEASES LEGENDARY MUSIC PRODUCER
SCOTT STORCH DOCUMENTARY
“I just want to be remembered as one of the greatest producers of all time.”
– Scott Storch
Today, Vevo has exclusively released, ‘Still Storch,’ an original film about legendary music producer Scott Storch. From his early beginnings as a member of The Roots band to producing worldwide hits for Beyoncé, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Chris Brown and many others. This no-holes barred mini-doc delves into Scott’s world, to tell his harrowing story of addiction and fame in his own words. Both of which led him to burn through a $100 million+ fortune, and hit ‘rock-bottom’, however his unrelenting genius-like talent and hunger to prove his critics wrong has only fueled his passion for creating.
“People have their bottoms – I shot through the bottom and I went like a hundred thousand leaps beyond the sea bottom… I don’t know many people who could survive emotionally, mentally through what I went through.” – Scott Storch
Now, Scott is back making headlines; having never left the studio, he is ready for a come-back, working with some of the most exciting names in music.
The documentary was commissioned by Vevo, directed by Rollo Jackson, from SomeSuch Productions, with executive producers Joseph Patel and Justin Prager.
‘The hunger is taking back my throne.”
– Scott Storch.
JP Evangelista, Head of Content & Programming: “Vevo is always looking for opportunities to creatively tell stories through video, and to be able to work with someone as infamous and legendary as Scott on this mini-doc meant we could bring his story to a global platform.”
Rollo Jackson, Director said: “Talent and celebrity are easily confused nowadays; part of this film is about the toxic allure of fame and what it can do to you. But really this is a portrait of a man with a stoic talent for the piano. Someone who is far more eloquent, humorous and thoughtful than people tend to think. And most importantly someone who has an ear for a hit that very few people possess. “
Joseph Patel, Executive Producer said: “Scott’s story is incredibly compelling. Ultimately, with this film, we wanted to focus on the natural, inherent talent he has and has always had. A life and career with dramatic highs and lows – and through it all, talent never dies. I’m really happy he allowed us to tell his story.”
Justin Prager, Executive Producer and Director of Music & Talent said, “Scott is a music production legend. His tracks have reached billions of music fans all over the world, and now through this documentary, they will get to hear his compelling story.”
