Scott’s vision came to fruition when he began directing documentaries for the startup company Zoom Culture.

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

The duo discovered a missing element in tv a lot more than a couple of years ago: the desires and dreams, the extremely manifestos (or missions) of everyday people had been not becoming 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 function documentary in progress, WE WANT THE AIRWAVES.
