Raymond Scott documentary in the works

RaymondScott.com reports:

During the past several years, Raymond Scott‘s only son, Stan Warnow, has been making a documentary film about his pioneering & eccentric father. Stan, who has been a professional in movies & TV since the 1960s (including the Academy Award® winning WOODSTOCK film, HAIR, RAGTIME, ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL, plus SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, & THE WONDER YEARS on television), plans to unveil his doc in 2009 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of his dad’s birth.

The film combines archival footage & historic photographs with interviews of Raymond Scott’s family & professional colleagues, as well as followers such as John Williams, Mark Mothersbaugh, Don Byron, Hal Willner, & DJ Spooky. The documentary’s soundtrack has been constructed entirely from Scott’s own compositions.
