 The son of artists William and Mary Scott, James Scott's filmmaking career began while a student at the Slade School of Fine Art in London in the 1960s. After his acclaimed debut The Rocking Horse, Scott became known for his early experimental art documentaries on key 1960s figures such as David Hockney and Richard Hamilton, and later worked with the radical Berwick Street Collective.He won an Academy Award for his film A Shocking Accident (1983), a romantic comedy based on the short story by Graham Greene.
