Scott Budnick

Scott Budnick grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated from Emory University in 1999 with degrees in Business and Film.

Mr. Budnick has produced such films as the The Hangover series, Old School, Project X, Starsky and Hutch, School for Scoundrels, and Due Date.

In addition to the above, Mr. Budnick works closely with the Los Angeles Probation Department, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and CDCR in giving incarcerated youth a path to education, success and rehabilitation before their release. He can often be found walking the tiers of California jails and prisons on his nights and weekends, giving hope and words of advice to the many incarcerated youth who have been through his classes.

Mr. Budnick launched The Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC), an organization of very high-achieving formerly incarcerated young adults who work to support one another, while stopping the flow of men and woman into the criminal justice system.
