Making A Scene " Anthony Scully

Dominique Taylor/Vail DailyWith three short movies to his credit, Battle Mountain High School senior Anthony Scully appears to be on his way to the big screen.

The young writer/director/producer started his journey with “Minimum Wage,” went on to produce “Narratua Ebrius” with former local high school student Jonathan Bricklin, and is currently finishing “Pickles and Onions,” which was shot last summer and shown at the Vail Film Festival.

How did he keep the momentum going? “I utilized contacts ” people I met through ‘Minimum Wage,'” Scully says. But that’s not all – this witty young man also has talent.

Born in Boulder, Scully grew up in the Vail Valley. He attended Edwards Elementary School and Avon Elementary School. During those early years, he says one memory he has, is of his pants falling down. “We revolutionized the baggy pant,” he says.

He also attended school at the Eagle County Charter Academy and started up his deejay business. Scully began hosting at the VCS school dances and then went on to do the same for other area middle schools.

His next adventure includes college at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Before that, his summer will be spent in New York with Jonathan Bricklin, editing several short films.

Early on, Scully says he wanted to be an actor. He grew up around the Vail Performing Arts Academy through his mom, Anne Scully. “I had always wanted to be an actor,” he says, adding that he always has a small part in each of his projects. Along the way, he realized he enjoyed everything that went along with acting. “Being behind the camera is the next best thing,” he says.

Scully also credits PAWS (Battle Mountain’s broadcast class) for allowing him to work on his directing and producing skills. What will Scully miss the most about Battle Mountain?

“The girls … definitely, the girls,” he says.

And growing up with all of the recreational advantages that Vail has to offer.

But, Vail is home and Scully is sure to be back for some visits.
