Nicol Scott graduated from Camberwell College (London Institute) with a degree in Graphic Design in 2002, and has since worked as a freelance animator / compositor. His expertise lies in 2D animation, using mainly Adobe After Effects although 3D work with Maxon Cinema4D is becoming an increasing feature of his work.
Nicol has worked on a wide variety of projects, for various agencies, design, production, and animation companies, as well as direct commissions. His wide roster of clients includes the BBC, MTV, Intro, Imagination and Peep Show. Projects have included music videos, commercials, children’s television, tour and event graphics, title sequences, web animation, and theatre projection. In 2012 he was part of the animation team for the Emmy Award winning World War Two From Space for the History Channel, produced by Prime Focus.
His association with 59 Productions began when he was contracted as senior animator for CrystalCG to create animated content for the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, for which 59 were video designers. This led to a series of projects which varied widely in scope and style including Ceremony of Innocence, a Royal Ballet production in celebration of Benjamin Britten’s Centenary year choreographed by Kim Brandstrup. Nicol also worked as animation director for the complex theatrical projections for Nico Muhly’s Two Boys, presented by the Metropolitan Opera, New York.
