Mini Bio (1)
Scott Mosier is a Canadian-American film producer, holding dual citizenship. He is particularly known for his long-term association with film director Kevin Smith. He has produced most of Smith's early films.
Mosier was born in Vancouver, Washington. His father John Mosier was a Canadian from Saskatchewan, but moved frequently between the state of Washington and British Columbia. The younger Mosier spend his early life in both areas.
Mosier received his film education at the Vancouver Film School, where he met fellow college student Kevin Smith. He agreed to help Smith if he ever managed to direct a feature film. He was later recruited as the producer of Smith's debut film "Clerks" (1994). He also served as the film's sound editor, and film editor. He contributed to the film's budget.
Following the first film's completion, Mosier helped secure financing for Kevin's next film: "Mallrats" (1995). Their third film, "Chasing Amy" (1997), was financed by the film studio Miramax. Most of these films had small budgets, and used obscure actors. His first film with a budget of at least 20 million dollars was "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" (2001).
Mosier managed to secure a film budget of 35 million dollars to the comedy-drama film "Jersey Girl" (2004), but the film under-performed at the box office. His partnership with Smith continued until 2010, when Mosier started trying to make it on his own as a director.
In 2011, Mosier contributed scripts for several episodes of the animated television series "The Ultimate Spider-Man". He later co-wrote the screenplay of the animated feature film "Free Birds" (2013), featuring time-traveling turkeys. Mosier made his directorial debut with the animated feature film "The Grinch" (2018), an adaptation of the children's book "How the Grinch Stole Christmas!" (1957) by Dr. Seuss. The film was a box office hit, grossing about 512 million dollars at the worldwide box office.
As of 2020, Mosier was 49 years old. He continues his film career, though it is unclear if he will return to directing.
