Hilari Scarl will claim Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles or New York as home, depending on which is most convenient. Her migratory background set the stage for her multi-hyphenated career, generating a director/producer/writer-performer moniker that annoys journalists with space limitations.

Hilari enjoys the rich tapestry of various genres, but specializes in comedy, ASL content with Deaf actors and working with teens. Fluent in sign language, she advocates for casting Deaf actors, making content accessible and collaborating with Deaf and disabled artists. Hilari’s accomplishments include directing the award-winning feature See What I'm Saying; being featured on Steven Spielberg's On the Lot; producing TV segments for CBS, TLC, Court TV and the History Channel; and consulting on Sound of Metal for Amazon Studios along with her company Worldplay, Inc.

Quirky credits include being featured in a bank commercial directed by Errol Morris, fire eating with the rock band Powder at The House of Blues and an appearance as a Screaming Tree in Wes Craven’s Wishmaster. She also once baked a cake in the shape of a purse, and she would do it again. Welcome to all things Hilari Scarl.
