Glen Scantlebury is an American film editor, director, and screenwriter. He has edited major studio feature films such as Con Air and Transformers, and has worked primarily in the action and horror film genres.



Currently based in San Francisco, Scantlebury was born in Annandale, Virginia in 1955, and attended Virginia Commonwealth University.

Film editing

In 1981, Scantlebury became a member (performer and crew) of The Video Band, for which he edited a series of experimental music videos released in the early 1980s.

Scantlebury became one of the first editors to edit feature films on video, beginning in 1987 with the Tom Waits concert film Big Time (1988). He subsequently worked at Zoetrope Studios for five years. He was cited by Variety in 2009 as a "key cutter" among director Michael Bay's "trusted team of editors."

In addition to editing feature films, Scantlebury has edited numerous music videos and documentaries. In 2012, Scantlebury was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Independent film production

Scantlebury is an independent filmmaker, operating Pavement Pictures in partnership with his wife, Lucy Phillips. Phillips is a producer, director, and screenwriter.

Abducted, the fourth feature film written and directed by Phillips and Scantlebury, appeared as an Xbox exclusive release in September 2013, and was released on DVD in October 2013. It won the 2013 Shriekfest Horror/Sci-Fi Film Festival award for best sci-fi feature film.
