Alberta's John Scott has appeared in seven Academy Award-winning films as the lead wrangler, stunt, and animal coordinator. Throughout his life, he has worked on around 250 television and film productions and helped build the film industry in Western Canada, bringing over a billion dollars worth of production work into the province. So who is this local legend?

TRUE WEST: THE JOHN SCOTT STORY takes audiences on a cinematic journey into this cowboy’s world to meet some of the movie industry's top wranglers, stuntmen, animal trainers and celebrities who work with John to turn reality into fantasy.

THE REVENANT, LEGENDS OF THE FALL, SHANGHAI NOON, UNFORGIVEN, DAYS OF HEAVEN, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSIE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD are academy award-winning films that he had key roles in. John was flown to New Zealand to be the horse stunt coordinator for the battle scenes in Lord of the Rings 3, another academy award-winning film where he directed 400 horses and riders, surrounded by orcs.
