As a leader in the creative application of digital and visual effects technologies to the film industry, he has worked across many forms and genres. He has been nominated for an Academy Award three times (Babe, Starship Troopers, Hollow Man), and received the Oscar for Babe. A longstanding member of the effects community, he was also a key contributor to the Oscar winning films The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and King Kong.
With an eye on the future of storytelling, Scott founded Digital Sandbox in 2005. Digital Sandbox is a company dedicated to the future of filmmaking, one that designs creative and technical solutions for filmmakers. Its mission is the effective application of modern cinema methodologies to films of all budgets, while focusing on creative solutions and expert guidance to support filmmakers of all kinds.

Scott’s creative work is heavily focused on developing character and story, be it the seminal animal performances of Babe, the emotional impact of King Kong, the digital human of Kevin Bacon’s Hollow Man, or the action-loving performances in Tintin. He has recently brought both these worlds together on such films as Blumhouse’s Sweetheart, Sony Pictures’ The Shallows and the independent films Juveniles and Imprisoned.
