Scott Bartlett was one of the premiere abstract/experimental movie makers of the late 1960s and the 1970s. His acclaimed work, such as his intense abstract 16mm movie Moon 1969, is greatly admired by many filmmakers, including Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas. His notable abstract movies and visual avant-garde films include Serpent, Medina, Metanomen, Lovemaking, and the poignant interior documentary 1970. His 1967 experiment OffOn, shot on 16mm, was groundbreaking for its use of new video imagery technologies. His science fiction epic feature "Innerseed" was in pre-production for many years, having completed a pre-visualization version starring a then unknown William Hurt. The project was canceled during one of the many difficult periods for Francis Coppola's Zoetrope Studios. He continued to work in various artistic endeavors and was regularly consulted by special effects crews for large Hollywood films including Altered States, and George Lucas hired him to create the "montage design" for the sequel More American Graffiti.
