      • Butter Fingers


        from J-Scott Added 204K 5,143 159

        “Butter Fingers” explores some of the more unique items you might not want to let slip through your fingers. Let's face it, if you can't relate to dropping at least a handful of the items pictured, then you're either utilizing duct-tape to it's fullest potential or it was you who dropped the grenade. Condolences. Creating "Butter Fingers" was no easy task and entirely a labor of love for the better part of 2 years. Finding time during evenings and weekends, until all hours of the morning occasionally, holidays etc. until the ground was filled with all the bits and pieces of unlucky items. Although I was a team of one to formulate the ideas, illustrate, design and animate the visuals, that is only half of the pie. I worked with a pair of extremely talented people, each in their own right. Cyrille Marchesseau composed a stunning score based off of a single "Home Alone" reference I provided and created a soundtrack that opens up a colorful world I wouldn't have been able to arrive at on my own. Wesley Slover brought the items to life with marble hits and soda sprays galore, working from my ambiguous descriptions and requests until they were just the right amount of fun. Once everything was complete, he was also responsible for the crisp final mix that you hear now. A special thanks to all those who answered my questions and helped solve problems I otherwise would still be stumped by, including Matthew Sienzant, Mike Florio, Chad Tafolla, Ryan Summers, Ben Tucker, Forbes Hill, Michael Dibblee, Justin Demetrician, and my beautiful wife Katie (who put up with more floor crashes than anyone should ever be asked to).

        • Lovaganza


          from J-Scott Added 18K 1,991 73

          I had the opportunity to once again team up with the awesome team at The Academy. Working with Director Colin Hesterly, I brought the stunning designs of Dan Matutina to life and the end result is a beautifully fluid ode to a simpler time; referencing things like The Worlds Fair and Disneyland's World of Tomorrow. Hoping to make the world a better place through the magic of animation, paired with the message of love, I hope you enjoy the result as much as we enjoyed the process.

          • Meet the Firms


            from J-Scott Added 19.3K 1,408 39

            I teamed up with CollegeFrog to pump out this spot for their "Meet the Firms" week that connects accounting students to all the registered firms in their state and provides tools for future employment. It's like having your own Hollywood agent, except neither of you are actors and you're good with numbers (hopefully). Wesley Slover hopped on and used his training at Hogwarts to nail the sound design, and the end logo was designed by Kyle Schmitz.

              For the relaunch of the Macmillan English Campus website, I was asked by MEC to put together this fun, simple, introductory animation to show both the online content and platform used to teach English as a second language. I directed, designed and animated this piece. The original music and sound wizardry was done by Wesley Slover himself.

              • AIM Identity


                from J-Scott Added 9,375 400 12

                The Autism Internet Modules were developed with one aim in mind: to make comprehensive, up-to-date, and usable information on autism accessible and applicable to educators, other professionals, and families who support individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). I was contacted by the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) about creating an identity animation for AIM using their already existing logo that would be used infront of all their online video content. I donated my time to design an animation that was simple, yet playful and had personality. http://www.autisminternetmodules.org/ A special thanks to Wesley Slover for designing the sound.

                • A Dash Of That


                  from J-Scott Added 54.3K 2,735 108

                  My wife is an amazing Baker/Cooker (if that's a word), basically she makes ridiculously tasty things in the Kitchen for your mouth. She finally got around to starting a blog where she shares all kinds of thoughts and recipes and experiences, and I thought this would be a great tag team for us so I started designing in my spare time. 4 months and a couple hundred layers later this is what I came up with! Check her out at: http://adashofthat.tumblr.com/ A special thanks to Slavka Kolbel Kuehn for helping lay down Katie's voice track and to Wes Slover for designing the sound!

                  • Hockey 101


                    from J-Scott Added 106K 2,839 96

                    During my time at DIGITAL KITCHEN as an intern, I was asked to create a personal project of my choice. The content, approach, creative, tools, style etc. were all up to me and basically I would get out of the project what I put into it. For those who know me well, or even briefly know that I am a diehard Canadian born hockey fan (Canucks). I decided to use this as the subject matter and wanted to get the opinions of some of my fellow American creatives on the sport of hockey which they may or may not know anything about. I interviewed a bunch and then cut the most unique candid answers together with the intention of bringing the piece into flash and animate over. This is a technique I had yet to try my hand at so I applied myself and after 1407 individually animated frames it was done! Thanks to everyone at DIGITAL KITCHEN Seattle for letting me pick your brains on my favorite thing. ---------- J-Scott Reel 2011 http://vimeo.com/29250393

                      from J-Scott Added 17.5K 841 76

                      I often find myself making notes on what techniques or projects I want to attempt next, changing and adding to them. This was a culmination of a few of those notes during my free time in the past few months. I wanted to try my hand at heavily tracking footage, with the intention of using those tracks to design a piece that was calm and beautiful and natural. I located some beautiful shots of butterflies already shot and felt those would be a perfect start. This is my best attempt at that using my favorite song, ever. A special thanks to Ryan Farms who shot the original butterfly footage and let me chop, grade and mix his work: http://vimeo.com/21904714 Original music by: The Cinematic Orchestra - To build a home
