I recently finished directing a 30 second Fristi commercial for Leo Burnett in Ho Chi Mihn city. Cirkus is currently in the process of regrading the finished commercial for our reel as we weren’t happy with the client directed grade for the televised version (watch this space). The epic battle between the hero characters and an army of evil robot villains had to take place in an old dilapidated carnival park.
Taking inspiration from images of Pripyat and other abandoned places I had two days to rough up concept art to show the agency what we intended as environment elements. The derelict wooden roller coaster was inspired by the wonderful Cyclone in Coney Island, Brooklyn.
"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."

"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!”
