Hello! My name is Scott Middleton and I’m a Junior Compositor with good working knowledge of Nuke and experience throughout the VFX pipeline. I’m constantly driven to improve and to achieve photorealism in my work. Whilst being an avid photographer, I want to expand my craft into DMP and, in the future, I hope to work on feature films and CG Cinematics.

GET TO KNOW SCOTT

What hobbies do you have?

I’m a keen downhill mountain biker. The need for speed, thrill of adrenaline and the satisfaction of pushing yourself, I find, is great for mental toughness. Also, whilst growing up on the rural Pennines, I’ve naturally developed an appreciation for the outdoors and I love a spontaneous adventure as it’s a great escape away from the computer!

If you were an animal, which one would you be and why?

I would be a goat. A goat is one of the most resilient animals, they are always ready to climb ahead and are willing to send themselves to great distances, climbing the highest of mountains. They are a symbol of “the sky is the limit”.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

My ambition in 5 years time is that I would be improving on my knowledge and skills, whilst working towards becoming a Senior/ Lead Compositor, with a collection of credits to my name.

Tell us an achievement you're proud of.

I am most proud of directing and being a compositor on ‘Russell’, which went on to win a great deal of awards including ‘Best VFX’.

Would you rather be a wizard, jedi or superhero and why?

I would be a Wizard; I admire how knowledgeable they are and you can't go wrong with a little magic!

Describe your favourite VFX sequence.

It’s a tough one but I think the VFX in ‘1917’ are incredible! The use of invisible visual effects throughout creates a sense of immersion within the reality of the film. Especially during the final ‘burning city’ scene.

What was your crowning moment of your time at Escape?

Meeting, working and learning alongside some truly talented people who share the same love and passion for VFX.
