Scott’s vision came to fruition when he began directing documentaries for the startup company Zoom Culture. Numerous of these films have been produced for the national Tv shows PLAYGROUND EARTH and HIP HOP NATION. During his time at ‘ZC’ Scott found himself shooting stories on almost everything from skilled street lugers to Los Angeles street art and a number of PSA’s.

On his subsequent adventure, he supervised edits of the OLYMPICS plus the first ever multiplatform broadcast from the Paralympics for NBC/Universal. He then further honed his documentary expertise shooting with all the Gantz Brother’s production company View Film (of TAXICAB CONFESSIONS fame).

In 2005 Scott formed Zero Point Entertainment with partner Charmel Green and served as Senior V.P. of production.

Additionally they developed the online video platform Kachoo!, packaged function films, made commercials for cutting edge clients just like the Wellness Channel, and formed partnerships with industry veterans including Promenade Photographs.

The duo discovered a missing element in tv a lot more than a few years ago: the desires and dreams, the extremely manifestos (or missions) of everyday people had been not being represented. Scott’s background intertwined with this deficit & inspired the project & show known as MANIFESTO! The series has been shopped through much of the world, has inspired countless commercial projects, and is now the subject of Scott’s feature documentary in progress, WE WANT THE AIRWAVES.

Recently Scott also consulted on a feature documentary about the quintessential, defunct punk music venue ‘The Outhouse’ based in Lawrence, Kansas. He’s also developing soon-to-be-announced doc projects involving a team of legendary pro skaters.

Scott’s social justice work spans environmental, animal welfare, & civil rights issues, having worked on behalf of Greenpeace, The Sierra Club, NRDC, Friends on the Los Angeles River, and Rhapsody in Green amongst others. Scott’s animal advocacy includes operating with animal advocate Karen Dawn on her campaigns. He was also the co-founder and executive director with the endangered species non-profit Identify Foundation, where they launched a Mountain Gorilla project and a prepped a Pink Dolphin project. Partners included DFGFI (Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund Intl) and MGVP (Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Patrol), as well as WWF and Sea Sheperd on prepped projects.

Scott was an early, loud and proud creator and supporter of socially conscious, cause oriented tv. He continues to push the envelope whenever he can. He was recently featured in Micro$oft’s Green Leaders video series. He hosts documentary film/television projects and organizes/speaks at charity events whenever time allows.
