'Turn It Up' was a departure from the norm, for an Us3 track, in that it didn’t really have any “music” per se, although I still consider it jazz-influenced as it’s all about rhythm. It’s more “jazz-crunk” than “jazz-funk”. I had never used a green screen facility before, and this worked perfectly. This time the video was all about the post-production, and Scott did a great job, the end result looks amazing.
@splurj is dope. Two projects together, both with time against us, both brilliant products. Respect the work ethos.
I worked alongside Scott at Fluid Creativity for three years where we developed a great friendship. We still share ideas and inspiration to this day and I admire his eagerness to try new things, bend the rules and test his abilities to the max. I'm sure he'll go very far, live his dream of becoming a successful motion designer and end up somewhere that he can use his skills to their full potential.
Standing out in the already overcrowded electronic dance music world can be trying and hard sometimes, but it just got a little easier thanks to @Splurj who feverishly designed my unique DJ logo. I am now the proud owner of a shiny new logo design and brand image that reflects me and my music. Thank you Scott.
I have known Scott professionally for over two years. In all that time I have found him to be an extremely accomplished, talented, creative and multi-skilled designer. He is a thoughtful and articulate individual who approaches work in a very professional manner and works well within a team. He is a self starter and possesses a very strong work ethic. If Scott has a fault the only one I can think of is you will occasionally have to tell him to go home.
Scott has proved himself to be one of the most committed and hardworking students it has been my privilege to know. He is pro-active in his attitude, an effective communicator, and is a popular member of the group that is liked by both staff and fellow students. He has excellent development skills, produces work that is intelligent, dynamic and of a very high standard, and is highly self motivated with a willingness to succeed.
At the video shoot, everyone taking part just came in and played their various roles in front of the camera. It was then up to the video director to edit it according to his vision. When I saw the final version, I was really astonished how it had turned out. It's a real skill to edit down hours of footage to only a few minutes. Thank you, Editor, for allowing me to experience different aspects of life.
@splurj is a f**king lord… end of!
His approach to his work is methodical and logical and he fully explores a wide range of possible solutions to his projects. He possesses an extremely good understanding of the creative process, realising the importance of ideas, research and development. He also displays a particular flair for attention to detail which is consistent through all his work. He is technically proficient, possesses excellent typographic skills, and demonstrates the ability to work in a variety of media.
For 'The Love Of My Life' I wanted live footage and nice graphics and set about trawling the internet. Stumbling upon Scott’s music video for D-Tox I knew he was the man for the job. His work was fresh, genuinely different, and full of ideas. He was an absolute joy to work with and the result surpassed even my expectations, capturing the romantic mood of the song perfectly, while giving it a definite edge with his graphics and editing skills.
Since 2008 I have added greatly to my work experience and technical knowledge and have remained involved in working with music videos, corporate videos, video idents and other promotional videos where I have educated myself over time. I have helped film and produce a video featuring an interview of D12, the famous hip hop group. Some of the other notable clients whom I have worked with include Jake Bugg, BBC, The University of Manchester, The Prince’s Trust, Buffalo Technology and NHS.
I have gained enough exposure and acquired technical skills to widen my area of work. On the basis of my sound technical knowledge, awareness of practicalities concerning video production and my creative competencies, I feel confident and able enough to produce videos for commercial purposes and corporate clients to an extremely high standard.
I have years of experience and learning in the field of art and design. Motion Graphics persists to be my particular area of interest and provides me with an opportunity to have a dynamic approach as I work my way through achieving greater heights. Driven by my passion for graphics and design I am enthusiastic about exposing my work and creating exciting visual experiences that a wide audience can relate to. Overtime, I have come to realise the importance of collaborative work force and effective communication. My understanding of the need for having a specified approach to be able to progress in a lucrative fashion as a motion graphics designer, has led to my increased appreciation for joint ventures to ensure disciplined working. I sincerely believe in engaging creativity with the craft to produce fruitful results, dynamic in design and innovative in nature. I value the need for having specialists being assigned to handle particular aspects of design to produce a meaningful masterpiece of art. I believe in sharing ideas and being a part of a productive team to generate creative results and have an efficient work-flow. It becomes my priority to seek opportunities where I can engage with creative minds and share my ideas which can lead to devising innovative strategies and their practical execution.
