Scott E. Moore wears many hats. He’s a filmmaker, musician, journalist and entrepreneur. He worked for MTV and VH1, produced five solo albums, started his own production agency and served as the creative director of TheVisualMD, a site that provides visual medical information.
Moore’s latest gig involved yet another creative endeavor — composing two hours of music for Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey‘s 21-Day Meditation Challenge. In the latest Mediabistro feature, Moore tells what it was like to score music for two of the most famous people in the world, and what’s next in his varied career:
So what’s next on your agenda?
My own agency and a colleague of mine, Eric Feldman, we’re creating a passion project. Imagine an hour-long documentary on a fascinating individual [that's] only five minutes long. That individual is someone you know who you feel the world should know. The subject of one documentary is our friend Ray Levier, an amazing musician who found his passion for drums after surviving a serious fire [during] his childhood.
These videos aren’t released yet, but at the end of the year we are going to launch our site with five profiles and a profile about the project. Some of the characters are quirky and some have a lot of talent and some are just these beautiful human beings. [Eric and I] thought if we were going to make something for ourselves to showcase what we’re capable of, tell stories we’re passionate about and try to do some good in this world, this would be it.
