Based in Central London, Dover Street Entertainment was founded by Graeme Alistair Scott and Kathy A LoPrimo. The company was set up to produce dramatic film and television, encompassing a range of entertainment based projects. Dover Street Entertainment are currently developing a large budget period drama television series alongside a slate of films working with producers behind numerous BBC and Channel 4 television series.
Graeme Alistair Scott has extensive experience in the music industry, having developed and managed Sam Smith for several years, winner of 4 Grammys and an Oscar among numerous other awards. Graeme has worked with songwriters behind stars such as Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Girls Aloud and Jessie J. Since Sam Smith, Graeme has been developing a new artist which will be going to market later this year.
MyViews Technology is Graeme Alistair Scott’s technology company which is developing innovative new applications to address the needs of everyday people suffering from poverty and lack of access to critical resources in developing countries. New technologies developed by MyViews aim to increase access to previously unobtainable services with the goal of raising the standard of living, access to education and inclusion within the global digital economy, thus unlocking fresh opportunity for those in need.
Paying it forward is an important part of life. At least half of Graeme Alistair Scott’s work on projects have a direct humanitarian aspect, providing both resources, consulting and raising awareness, contributing to those in need. The Last Hope feature film follows the doctors and staff of Italian NGO ‘Emergency’ who provide medical assistance to victims of war and poverty. In addition to existing projects, Graeme commits time each month to working on a ad hoc basis for chosen charities.
Graeme Alistair Scott consults for a number of up and coming start-ups, providing guidance and advice, along with strategic and creative input. This includes London based lifestyle brand Stunt-In founded by Kyle Jordan, a growing brand in fashion and the company behind London’s Official Red Cup Party exclusive events. Graeme also consults for WSP, an international sports consultancy who’s clients include current IBF Heavyweight Champion of the World and Olympic Gold Medal Winner Anthony Joshua.
Alongside the music and television work, Graeme set up a design and technology company which went on to work as a think tank for Steve Jobs at Apple in the late 90’s, as well as working with clients including BMW Mini, Warner Brothers, Universal, Home Depot, American Pie, Austin Powers, Girls Aloud and Microsoft, helping several startup clients go to market through to acquisition.
After a number of years working with blue chip companies, Graeme once again turned to music, setting up a label with release through Universal. This led to working with the likes of James Taylor from the James Taylor Quartet and establishing a firm grasp of A&R’ing artists, developing both a sound and an image. Through the work involved in helping take businesses from startup to sale, Graeme decided to develop a new technology called CarbonWise.
After successfully selling CarbonWise, Graeme moved back to his passion of music, taking on a young artist called Sam Smith. Over several years Graeme developed Sam’s sound, working with many producers and writers, including Mike Moran (Queen, Barcelona) and writers behind Jessie J and JLS, signing a track to the soundtrack of Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy before recording Little Sailor in Newcastle with Stuart Emerson (Bonnie Tyler), the track that won Sam his recording contract.
After Sam, Graeme tied up with Kathy A LoPrimo, setting up Dover Street Entertainment to develop TV and film projects. Working together as a team, the pair have successfully developed The Last Hope, which is now in production with a team of multiple Oscar and Emmy winners including Karen Goodman and Buddy Squires. With several projects moving into production, the next chapter has begun and Graeme’s best work is yet to come.
