Robert Scott Witty
Robert Scott Witty was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was a childhood actor staring in “Let’s Go,” a Canadian children’s TV series taped at the CKY-TV studios in Winnipeg. In early adulthood, he toured around the world as a lead performer with, “Up with People,” gaining international exposure and experience.
In 1996, Witty graduated from the Neighbourhood Playhouse School of the Theater in New York City. He then co-founded The Shooting Star Theater in Lower Manhattan, featuring plays and musical acts for over 15 years, though he sold his ownership interest in 2000.
In 2000, he resumed acting in television shows and theatre productions; produced theatre productions in the U.S. and Canada; and directed and produced music videos that appeared on Much (formerly known as MuchMusic), Canada’s leading music video channel.
After owning and operating successful business ventures in British Columbia, since 2003, Witty immigrated to the United States with his wife and children, turning his primary focus to producing films. Witty’s continued passion for filmmaking has led him to take on the role of producer for “Feast of The Seven Fishes,” written and directed by Robert Tinnell, with an ensemble cast featuring Skyler Gisondo and Madison Iseman. “Feast of the Seven Fishes” finished production in August 2018 with an anticipated November 2019 release date.
Witty is currently in pre-production on the films “Cornelius,” written by Canadian screenplay writer Ryan Uytdewilligen and “Seasons Greetings,” written by American screenplay writer Rick Blackwell.
