What type of scripts do you need?

I have a repetitive task, where I make .mov preivews from full res exr's in aftereffects.

I have automated some of the steps with very simple script (like rotating comp and footage, adding to render queue), but I would like to add to that.
I want to further automate this by automatically changing the "output to" folder to .exr files parent folder. So that the .mov preview would be created to the right folder each time without me searching for folders manually.
I have to make hundreds of previews so the manual folder searching adds up fast.

Is there a way?
