Nelson was hand-picked by Michael Tadross, Producer and former head of Paramount Studios, to scout Argentina and Uruguay for a future multi-million blockbuster, and returned to New York to work with Madonna on her directorial debut, “W.E.”
In 2014, Nelson set up Scout Production Services, in the hope of catering to the particular needs and demands of foreign crews coming to Australia to film their projects. Realising this niche set of skills, Scout remains the only successful Australian company to complete two chinese feature films.
In 2015, Nelson was awarded “Victorian Exporter of the Year”, by the Hong Kong Australia Business Association.
To date, Scout has hosted crews from China, Japan, Hong Kong, Sinpapore, Malaysia, Nepal, France, India and USA.
