"The Frank Zappa of his day"
Raymond Scott's son, Stan Warnow, is a veteran film editor whose lengthy resume includes the Woodstock film, and stints behind the lens for Saturday Night Live and The Wonder Years. For the past half-decade he's been conducting interviews and stockpiling footage to produce a documentary about his dad. The working title is On to Something, and you can view the trailer at Stan's blog or on YouTube.
The film intersperses archival footage and historic photographs with interviews of Scott's family and professional colleagues, as well as such fans as Mark Mothersbaugh, Don Byron, Hal Willner, and DJ Spooky.
