For Comfort Cloth World’s release in India in 2010, I created a new character. In the 15 second TVC called “Antibac”, featured in my SPOTS section, Andy walks out into the street on a blisteringly hot day. He is soon plagued by a slimy cloth sweat germ made of old socks. Comfort comes to the rescue and flattens it.
I had a lot of fun over the course of a day designing and drawing up the character in two different views for our modeler to go to work on. Unfortunately the client didn’t like the one big eye so it wound up with two smaller eyes in the final production. A shame but c’est la guerre!
Animating it was a lot of fun as we put some cool lip controllers and a sloppy tongue in the rig. Kevin – the agency creative, asked for the lips to feature a large zip so there’s something disconcertingly gimp(ish) about it. I looked at images of amoeba and bacteria for inspiration.
"What an awesome director: not only amazing with clients, very creative and always happy to help anytime of the day. It was a pleasure working with Scott and I hope to again soon."

"Scott was a great guy to have on the team, very competent, friendly and committed to the job at hand. A great fit in any team and I would think also a great team leader."

"Scott always goes the extra mile to make sure the finest quality work is delivered."
JAN HAYNESProducer - WETA PRODUCTIONS, NZ
"The standard of animation has always been excellent. The work we have created together has run on a global stage. There have always been sequence changes to reflect local market issues, some quite complex, but Scott has always managed them well. Deadlines have never been missed in the 5 years this campaign has run. I wouldn’t hesitate one second in recommending Scott for any job. Big or small, he puts the same enthusiasm in to every commercial, even a pack change out!”
