Acne adds director/producer Scott Weintrob

Acne, an integrated production company with offices in Stockholm, LA, Berlin and London, has added director/producer Scott Weintrob to its live-action roster of filmmakers.

Weintrob joins the team from media production company Untitled. His recent commercial work includes spots for major brands including Mazda, Hyundai, Volvo and Cadillac, among others. In addition, he received several awards for his short film Two-Legged Rat Bastards, written by Daniel Wallace (Big Fish) and starring Derek Waters (Drunk History). He will be shooting a feature film of the same name later this year.

On the TV side, Weintrob directed the BAFTA and International Emmy Award-winning show Top Gear for BBC. He also created and currently serves as executive producer for MTV2’s The DUB Magazine Project. In its second season, the show features well-known artists like Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Macklemore, Wiz Khalifa and others.

“I’ve had my eyes on Scott for a while,” says Acne CEO of US operations Jesper Palsson. “He has an interesting combination of cars, stunts, and experiential stuff on his reel, and on top of that he’s done some very cool work with Top Gear and MTV. He has a strong sense of cinematic storytelling and definitely has many tricks up his sleeve. In short, Scott will add a lot to the Acne roster.”
