Continuing with our ongoing series talking to the world’s greatest colorists, we move now to a colorist who is an artist first and a technical wizz second. Steven Scott’s credits include (amongst many): Cowboys & Aliens, Captain America, Tree of Life, Thor, Iron Man 2, Night at the Museum, Wolverine, Children of Men, Burn After Reading, Finding Neverland, Angels in America, Jarhead and many, many others.

And those are just Steve’s credits as a senior colorist. Before he graded, he was one of the world’s leading Flame artists. He is also a highly skilled traditional artist, and classically trained painter who transitioned to visual effects compositing in the early 90s, before moving to digital intermediate work at EFILM in 2002.

Steve won an Emmy for his visual effects work, and has won three HPA awards for color grading for a feature Film. He is a member, and former Governor of the Special Visual Effects branch of the Television Academy, a member of the VES, the HPA, is an associate member of the ASC, and sits on the Hollywood Architectural Design Review committee, and a great friend and support of fxguide for many years.

One Response to fxpodcast: Steven Scott – Cowboys & Aliens

  1. Great interview. It looks he is a passionate artist. I’m glad he comes from illustration and painting because is the same as me. I apreciate his advice of not get nervous when one is in front of a challenge. To get references to work and not try to imagine everything…..Well, very good advices and of course, fantastic results that we can see on screen.
