After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Master’s Degree in Film and Television, Clint Ross sought a career in the film industry as a screenwriter and director.
During his first few years while residing in Georgia, Ross wrote multiple feature screenplays and directed over 25 short films including a feature documentary THE ANGEL OF MARYE'S HEIGHTS that has over a million views on Amazon.
Ross won the 2020 Roadmap Writers JumpStart competition with his breakout thriller/horror/action script TOWER 9. He is an AFM Pitch Fest winner with his feature film BLIND COURAGE. An adventure-drama based on a true story about blind man, Bill Irwin, and his quest to hike the Appalachian Trail in a single hiking season with nothing more than his Seeing Eye dog.
In 2018, Ross’ film UNFORGOTTEN was selected for Best First Time Feature at the G.I. Film Festival in San Diego, California along side Jeffrey Wright’s WE ARE NOT DONE YET.
For the past 10 years, Ross has been teaching filmmaking, with an emphasis on screenwriting and directing at Emmanuel College in North Georgia.
He has pitched projects at Sony Affirm (A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD), Burn Later Productions (CRISIS), & Franklin Entertainment (MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN).
Ross tends to focus on inspirational bio-pics and rugged outdoor thrillers with compelling characters and tense stories that push you to the edge of your seat.
Clint Ross is a professional screenwriter-for-hire.
