What is your name and your current occupation? 
Jeffrey Scott.  Screenwriter.

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation? 
I was a portrait photographer in high school.  I got one job.  The guy hated the pics so much he refused to pay me.  Not at all crazy, but I also inked comic books for Disney, Warners, Hanna-Barbera and Lantz characters.

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of? 
Number one by far would be my work on Jim Henson’s Muppet Babies, for which I won three Emmys and the Humanitas Prize.  Working with Jim was a true pleasure.  I later wrote a live-action screenplay for him, but sadly he passed before we could make the film.
How did you become interested in animation? 
First by watching cartoons as a kid.  I loved the old Max Fleisher Superman cartoons.  Then my father invented an animation process so I got know animation from a deeper perspective.
Where are you from and how did you get into the animation business? 
I was born in Hollywood into a show biz family.  My grandfather was Moe Howard of The Three Stooges.  Continue…
