Owner / Director
Morgan Peszko was born in Norfolk Virginia to a Navy family, relocating to 6 different states. While living in San Diego California, he began skating and turned professional at 16. After a few years of touring and competition, ankle/knee injuries caused an early retirement in 2001. “I started filming skating and hotel antics. There was no YouTube — the first bubble back Apple came out, my friend Tyler and I began digitally editing.” With no formal film education he spent over a decade working independently as a Cinematographer/Editor throughout Los Angeles.
“I learned by making many mistakes, I feel that’s kept me open to break rules both traditional and unconventional for a fresh picture…”.
Twenty years after buying his first camera, he launched his first film company Scene 7.

Georgia born and Chicago bred, Jon Higley spent summers growing up writing screenplays, taking apart computers, and making some of the first digital graphics. With a degree in fine arts, he moved into the technology world – working with international artists to spread their expression and government to create change.
In 2013, Jon left the tech world and relocated to Brooklyn, New York — completely devoting himself to visual arts and music. To this day he travels the world DJ’ing through London and Europe. Jon currently lives in Los Angeles where he co-owns and operates Scene 7.
Morgan and Jon made their first video together in 1997 – a skate video called “Underexposed.”
