Another fun project from 1998 for Mojo in Auckland, New Zealand. To advertise a new energy bar that’s “out of this world” the agency wanted to depict the viewer as a future interplanetary voyager frustrated at being stuck behind a huge lumbering space haulage vessel. The viewer tries in vain to overtake at one point almost smacking into an oncoming boy racer. The viewer’s ship can once again hit warp drive only after the vessel turns on an approach trajectory towards Earth.
This type of project is so late ’90s in it’s quirky script and execution. I find myself constantly pining for the “good old days” when clients weren’t so global and fiercely protective of their corporate brand. It made for small regional deviations that could yield some surprisingly creative results. The fact that the New Zealand market was small and more cut off helped to create a lot of interesting variations.
"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."

"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!”
