  • Scott Lyman

    Founder & Director

    Scott got his start in production working as a sound engineer at the fabled Robert Lang Studios in Seattle where he honed his craft working with some of the biggest names in music. After several years in the music business he decided it was time to broaden his horizons so he moved to the Bay Area to study business management at Menlo College. It was during this time that he started doing sound for film and fell in love with the craft. Scott founded SPL in 2012 with the intention to "do things differently" in an industry that is fixated on traditionalism.

  • Alex MacLean

    Director & Visual Effects

    Alex's roots are in the Bay Area but he learned his craft on the mean streets of New York. There he was instrumental in designing the color pipeline and editorial workflow for the SNL digital shorts. He moved back to the Bay and opened a post house specializing in color and visual effects, but decided his time would be better spent on set directing talent than in a dark room staring at a screen all day. He recently relocated back to New York and is Directing commercials and corporate videos.

    Graphic Design

    Austin’s fine art degree in graphic design has proved to be a unique and valuable asset for our team. He takes a problem and attacks it from the inside-out rendering a beautiful, “why didn’t I think of that” solution. Hailing from Philadelphia, his traditional print background gave way to digital chops at Butchershop Creative in San Francisco where he worked on numerous award-winning projects.
