I'm Scott – Your friendly independent Motion-man
I used to be a graphic designer and illustrator with an obsession for pencils, pens, paper, and paint. That was before I got involved with video in 2005 – pushing pixels around I began bringing my work to life.
Soon, the music industry caught on and I started making music videos in my spare time. Eventually, I found making animations for businesses more satisfying and before long, it was time to bite the bullet and go freelance.
I established my small animation company in 2015 in Manchester and it went from strength to strength. Today, Motion Videos UK is on track to becoming one of the most exciting independent animation companies in the UK.
I sometimes work with other skilled creative talent too, so if you’re interested in working together and can bring benefit to our clients projects, let me know.
What people say
Scott was very easy to work with, always quick to feedback and produced a great finished video. I would recommend and will use Scott again in future.
— Gary Butterworth
Project Director, Studio North
I would recommend Motion Videos UK to anyone wishing to visualise a product concept or corporate message. Working with a complex product, I was unsure of how easy it would be to work with an external agency unfamiliar with the industry in which I work. I needn't have worried - from start to finish Motion Videos UK just 'got it'. From the wording to the style of the video, to the music, and the branding, I was amazed at just how well the whole process went - and I had three 2-minute videos produced! Needless to say I am extremely pleased with the results and will return whenever I require videos/animations. Creativity and originality certainly come as standard when you work with Scott.

Marketing Manager, M&I Materials
Scott was amazing to work with on this most recent project. We have asked Motion Videos UK to produce many previous videos for us and will continue to work with Scott on future campaigns. Great quality work, a keen eye for detail and extremely creative.

Scott was a pleasure to work with for my Coinbase promotional film. He was insightful in giving me ideas for how to structure my motion graphics and the works done were to an extremely high standard & done swiftly within tight deadlines. The client were very impressed. Looking forward to working together again in the near future.

Scott put together a brilliant explainer video for our participatory action research project. He was professional, adaptable and flexible- even as our requirements and brief changed. Would definitely recommend Motion Videos UK- Scott created exactly what we asked for, and it looks better than I could have ever expected! Thanks Scott!

Scott's helped us out on lots of projects and he's brilliant, very professional and a pleasure to work with. Always produces work of the highest quality too. Highly recommend.
— Karl Doran
Founder and Creative Director, Flow Creative
I worked with Scott on two animated videos which had two very different purposes and styles and I was extremely pleased with both of them. Scott just seemed to 'get' the brief from the outset and ran with it. He understood exactly what I was looking to achieve (better than I did myself!) and he exceeded my expectations from the start. He came up with a sleek, sophisticated look, which was beyond my creative imagination. In addition, he worked to an extremely tight deadline and was flexible, available and patient throughout. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Scott to anyone who is looking for a talented, creative and flexible video designer.

I was up against an incredibly tight deadline to create a motion video for an important partner. I approached Scott and he was simply outstanding. He understood a relatively complex brief, and returned his understanding to make sure we were aligned. Scott’s communication throughout the process was first class as I always knew exactly were I stood relating to lead times. The net result was more that I could have asked for, with our partner providing a round-of-applause after seeing Scott’s video.

Scott was a pleasure to work with on Hello Soda's Profile Personalisation video. The quality of work he produced was superb, he listened to our feedback immediately with a quick turnaround period. We will definitely look to Scott for future animation.
— Clare Palmer
Marketing Manager, Hello Soda
Scott worked on a video for us at Hello Soda. The communication was great and Scott got the video done as quickly as possible! Great to work with and will definitely be using again!
— Lana Rachel Yaffe
Digital Design & Events Manager, Hello Soda
I've worked with Scott on several video projects now and was very impressed with his can-do attitude and overall creativity. His experience using After Effects and Premiere Pro was a great asset to the projects and we were incredibly pleased with the results. Overall top bloke to work with!
— Paul Mayor
Visual Creative, SMRS
“Never Go Back” was the third video I’ve made with Scott and I think it’s the best one. With limited resources, a few musicians, a couple of dancers and a handful of kids he pulled together a quirky representation of the track. It was a mad day filming, everyone was wondering if it would work, but Scott’s masterful editing made total sense of the whole thing. Very happy yet again, I would highly recommend both him and Motion Videos UK.
— Geoff Wilkinson
The project began to take shape very quickly. Scott was always available to speak to on the phone and quick to respond to our emails. The final product was delivered on time and was exactly what we were looking for, and more. We’re happy we found him and will undoubtedly be using Motion Videos UK again in the future for more exciting projects. Thank you so much for your professionalism and creativity.
— Matt Frost
Producer, Nice & Polite
We hired Scott for an internal motion graphics project for the BBC after a strong recommendation. He really delivered for us, taking control of a large portion of the creative look of the piece, through from storyboards to animation. The final project was delivered on time and was exactly what we (and the BBC) were looking for.
— Sophia Ray
Head of Creative, Nice & Polite
Scott's imagination when it comes to creating motion graphics and video is astounding. You give him the gist of what you want, let his creativity do its thing, take a look at his work, tweak it and you're done. It really is that easy to work with Scott. On top of that he has a fun-loving but professional approach to his video projects that make it an actual pleasure to work with him and the results you'll get at the end are second to none. Make Scott and Motion Videos UK your first port of call for your next video or motion graphics project. I doubt you'll regret it.
— Ben Greenwood
Founder, GNGR Marketing
Scott did a great job of listening to our brief and interpreting it into something really engaging, while keeping us informed on his progress each step of the way. We’ve had great feedback on the final animation from staff and clients.
