Recently I’ve been nostalgically sorting through old project data on various formats and I came across this one for Healtheries. I did this on a tiny budget back in 1999 for DDB when I was one of the partners in FAT, New Zealand. Back then a lot of things appeared on TV that would never appear nowadays. Agencies, at least in New Zealand, were happy to create little TV ads and were not scared to experiment by letting you go lateral and bring something different to the table. Unless they had a budget of course and they’d be very much a part of the process.
This spot was for a vitamin C tablet called Boost Immunity. Designed as a retro (for the time) Sega Megadrive scrolling platform game it depicts a battle inside the human body against all sorts of creepy crawly bacteria and viruses.
What I would give to redo this today as an all 3d animated 30 seconder!
"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."
JOHN HOMERLead Character TD - WETA PRODUCTIONS, NZ
"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!”
