Steve Scott’s Career Harmonies
Meet Steve Scott, animation director. He’s rep’d by London-based Not To Scale, and his work is simply stunning. Have a ganders at this little Flash-animated gem – it’s the music video for a song called ‘Suburban Harmony’ by Telemetry Orchestra.
Oh, by the way, you just met Steve Scott, musician. That’s right, Mr. Scott is IN Telemetry Orchesra. That’s his band. Reminds me of the talented folks in Lemon Jelly, who also make their own Flash-animated videos.
Steve has also done some work with the design and animation shop Sixty40, who were recently profiled here at CHF, and here you can see his VH1 spot that tries to clear up the mysteries behind some Led Zeppelin lyrics.
I got in touch with Steve, who actually spent a year working at Disney, and he explained his process:
Almost all of my projects were created using Flash, but always as part of a process. I usually use Illustrator for character design, then do animation in Flash and then, at some stage, chuck everything into After Effects for further grading.
