Kurz-Doku: Scott Storch – Still Storch

„Still Storch“ ist eine Dokumentation von Regisseur Rollo Jackson über den legendären US-Produzenten Scott Storch aus Philadelphia. Im Kurzfilm blickt Storch auf seine ereignisreiche Karriere zurück: Karriere-Start bei der Roots Crew, zwei Jahrzehnte lange Charthits für 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, The Game, Mario, Terror Squad, Beyoncé und Justin Timerlake (um nur einige zu nennen) – und der anschließende Untergang durch „zu viel Geld“ und Drogen. 2009 meldete er Privatinsolvenz an und begab sich in ein Entzugsprogramm. Scott Storch über seinen Aufstieg, Fall und Neubeginn:

„There are few music careers like that of Scott Storch. The esteemed producer-songwriter made his initial mark in Philly as a key member of the Roots. A great start, but just the beginning of a wild ride to the top. Storch’s way with crafting hooks and shaping melodies, as well as his knack of being in the right place at the right time, brought him to Cali, where the inspired keyboardist began shaping the sound of pop, hip-hop and R&B, working with an array of artists that stretch from Dr. Dre and Beyoncé to 50 Cent Christina Aguilera. The hits rolled in, the money stacked up, and creativity exploded. A big chunk of the 2000’s best music has Storch’s name on it. Then, through a string of drug troubles and monetary woes, he dropped out of sight for decade. It was the music’s loss. Now he’s back in action, and our intimate profile ‘Still Storch’ paints a portrait of a man who’s seen it all and is still cranking out great tracks. These days his studio hosts artists such as French Montana, Chris Brown, A$AP Ferg as well as talented newcomers like Kyle and Thutmose. A victory come-back. For hip-hop fans, ‘Still Storch’ is a must-see mini-doc, an extended look at talent, addiction, and an unyielding passion for artistry.“
