Scott Hillenbrand is an American director, actor and screenwriter. He is a member of the Directors Guild of America. He often collaborates with his brother David Hillenbrand on projects. He is usually credited under the name "Scott Brandon" when he acts. He is an accomplished director who's movies include Hostile Takover, King Cobra, Demon Island, National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze, Gamebox 1.0, Dorm Daze 2, and Transylmania. The Hillenbrands also produced the theatrical stage show “Adrift” in Los Angeles in 1991 which was based on the best-selling novel of the same name.
The 2009 film Transylmania which he co-directed with brother David Hillenbrand was calculated as the financially poorest wide release motion picture to date, averaging only $262 per screen, and released on 1007 screens. David and Scott Hillenbrand were sued by the Transylmania print and advertising financial backers in 2012, who claim in the lawsuit that the project was a "staggering fraud". Kim Swartz, representing the Hillenbrands, writes in response, "David and Scott Hillenbrand and their team of top professionals did everything they could to try to get their investors a return on their investment, even to the Hillenbrands' own financial detriment, and, as stated in the Complaint, in spite of the plaintiffs' failure to provide the agreed upon P&A funds in a timely manner. The Hillenbrands look forward to having the plaintiffs' completely meritless claims dismissed and to prosecuting their own claims." In August, 2012, the Hillenbrands’ production company, Hill & Brand Productions 7, LLC that produced Transylmania, counter sued Third Eye Capital Corporation and Strative Capital LTD for fraud and breach of contract seeking damages of no less than $107,000,000.00 and alleging a scheme to defraud Hill & Brand Productions 7, LLC and to exploit the name and reputation of the Hillenbrands for their own financial gain.
