After becoming an established journalist in the 1960s, the British-born Jane Scott segued to work in the film industry. Initially, she spent three years at the British Film Institute, moving from distribution to production. By 1972, Scott became involved with the filming of Bruce Beresford's "The Adventures of Barry McKenzie" and went on to spend most of that decade commuting between England and Australia. She served as associate producer on several features including Gillian Armstrong's internationally successful "My Brilliant Career" (1978) and Simon Wincer's uneven but interesting "Harlequin" (1980), a modern day version of the Rasputin story. One of her biggest successes was the Paul Hogan vehicle "Crocodile Dundee" (1986) which spawned a less well-received sequel in 1988. After handling the chores as line producer on Baz Luhrmann's "Strictly Ballroom" (1992), Scott garnered further international attention with Scott Hicks' "Shine" (1996). Premiering at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival, this biopic of the little known Australian pianist David Helfgott won critical acclaim and audience attention. The National Board of Review named "Shine" as the Best Picture of 1996 and it went on to earn seven Oscar nominations, including one as Best Picture.
