It’s all about me.

Your friendly neighbourhood Motion-man

Hi, I’m Scott, a freelance motion graphic designer; mover, shaker, animator, video maker, and I’ve been keeping it real since 1980.

You’ll likely find me hanging out in Delph (a small village in Saddleworth that’s known for its church that featured in “A Monster Calls”) with my brilliant wife and our two adventurous cats.

Holding down my awesome empire at Motion Videos UK as a freelance motion graphic designer, I make engaging video content that helps businesses to market their products and services effectively – Whatever they might be.

Motivation

Always doing things that will take me to the next level, with a desire to step outside of my comfort zone, is a strength that’s possessed me to build my dream biz.

Here’s the thing: I love what I do, it satisfies my soul, but I’m intrigued by venturing to higher places where the signal is weak, but the connection is strong.

Experiencing the natural world on foot, wheels, water, or ropes, and staying on course with some of my favourite gadgets and gizmos is what I enjoy the most.

So, when I got the opportunity to make my video for the Garmin fēnix 6® I set about building my dream biz, Motium – A niche video brand specialising in the craft of high-end product videos for influential outdoor brands – the products that I love and that keep me exploring. Products that I believe can help others to make better connections with nature too.

Interests

Videography & Photography – Filming and taking photos are both my hobbies and my passion. I relish time away from the big screen, foraging and getting up close and personal with mother nature.

Biking & Running – With the Peak District being right on my doorstep I love days on the saddle of my StumpJumper as well as running with Saddleworth Runners.

Travelling & Adventure – Jamaica is my favourite happy place in the sun, but in the UK I gravitate towards the Lake District and Scotland in search of adventure and mindfulness.

Relaxing & Socialising – Sitting in front of the TV watching Taskmaster with my wife, enjoying good food and drinks with our friends at The Bank – these are a few of my favourite things.

  • 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!

    Anna-Christina Jones Youth Justice Research Associate
  • 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
  • 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.

    Sian Jenkins Head of Marketing, SSON
  • Scott provided a lovely infographic piece of work to a very tight timescale. A pleasure to work with and we will certainly be working with him again.

    Stephanie Griffiths Development Director, Police Now
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

    Gemma Shackleton Marketing Manager, M&I Materials
  • Before we'd even signed off the statement of work, a proof of concept animation had been emailed over. Scott really did go the extra mile, and not only was it the tipping point for working with him, it was the catalyst for what's become a brilliant ongoing supplier relationship. Highly commendable. Highly recommended! Five stars!

    Baz Richardson Creative Director, Bravo Marketing
  • 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.

    Barry McIntyre Global Marketing Director, IQPC
  • Motion Videos are a perfect strategic partner for our business. They provide us with the highest quality animation and motion work, attention to detail and creativity. The current style of motion tracking overlays we're producing are awesome!

    Ivan Moss Owner, Moss Creative
  • 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
  • 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 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
  • 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.

    Hannah Richardson Marketing Manager, First Recruitment Group
  • 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
  • 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.

    Raja Virdi Director & Filmmaker
  • Wow, blown away by the quality and professionalism of Scott and his motion graphics. Great communicator and ideas guy with fantastic technical talent. Highly recommended.

    Phil Melia Owner, Saddleworth Studios
  • 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.

    Adrian Payne Strategic Airline Partnerships, Hertz Europe
  • “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 Founder, Us3
  • An amazing promotional video they made for us at The Bank, Delph. Great service and an incredible end result.

    Darren Kerr Company Director, The Bank
  • 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
  • We've partnered with Scott on a few video projects now and we have been really impressed with his work. Not only does he take your brief and add creative flair, he is diligent, understands complex projects and works hard to achieve client objectives.

    Rachael Taylor Director, Garage Design
  • We launched with the videos on our main social channels – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. They look so good and we’re really, really pleased with them, so thank you very much for producing such an inspiring piece of content!
