The son of pioneering British abstractionist William Scott, James Scott studied painting and theater design at the Slade School of Fine Art in the early 1960s, but while there quickly transitioned into making films. In his early twenties, he directed several notable short works, helmed an unfinished feature produced by Tony Richardson, and shot a suite of candle-lit color tests for Richardson’s Tom Jones (1963).
