Scott Witthaus

Professor, Visual Storytelling

With 35 years of film and video industry experience, Scott has worked in almost every area of production and post-production, from live television to creative editorial for agency work (not to mention six “lost” years working in radio). After spending years at Henninger Media Services in leadership roles for facilities across the country, he returned to Richmond and his creative roots in 2003 to start Greybox LLC, a true creative editorial house located in Shockoe Bottom. In the fall of 2006, he branched out again and created 1708 Inc./Editorial.

Scott has won multiple national awards for his work. In 2011, he was asked to be a judge for the AICP Awards and still judges that competition today.

Scott joined the Brandcenter in 2008, teaching Visual Storytelling and Portfolio Development classes. He continues to edit professionally for agency clients and recently finished a feature-length documentary that is now in international distribution.

In 2016, he branched out again and formed Low Country Creative LLC—a partnership that was awarded a U.S. patent for a security product he hopes to bring to the market soon.

Scott graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a degree in mass communications and holds a Master of Arts in education and instructional technology from Virginia Tech. When not working or teaching, he can usually be found somewhere on the Chesapeake Bay or tending to his home-grown oysters; he is an oyster gardener with approximately 1,000 oysters floating off his dock.
