About Scotty Dunn:
Hello there! Thanks for watching my video. I’m a filmmaker who started out as an actor. I guest starred on a Disney show and appeared in several films before moving on to indie filmmaking. I made 3 feature films, which have screened at several film festivals including a premiere at San Diego Comic Con. Now I’m creating content for YouTube with my wife and filmmaking partner, Gina. My feature films are available on my Scotty Dunn Originals YouTube channel for free. MANDAO OF THE DEAD and MANDAO RETURNS are also available on VOD and AVOD platforms everywhere.
