Anthony Scott has worked in the animation industry for over 25 years. In 1987, stop motion pioneer, Art Clokey, hired him to animate clay characters for the television series The New Adventures of Gumby. Soon thereafter, Anthony began working with director Henry Selick on short stop motion projects for MTV. Several commercial jobs followed, including a Selick-directed Pillsbury Doughboy reboot. When Henry began crewing up for Tim Burton and Disney's The Nightmare Before Christmas, he asked Anthony to join his animation team.
Since Nightmare, Anthony has animated on several stop motion feature films such as Disney's James and Giant Peach and Monkeybone for 20th Century Fox. He supervised animation on the Academy Award nominated feature, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride for Warner Bros. in London. He also supervised animation for the Academy Award nominated film, Coraline, for Laika Entertainment and Focus Features. Coraline was Laika’s first feature film and Anthony was a key contributor in setting up and staffing the new studio. Anthony returned to Laika recently, this time solely to animate 3 key sequences on the feature film ParaNorman.
In 2008, Anthony collaborated with Jamie Caliri on the title sequence for Showtime's United States of Tara, winning an Emmy for Most Outstanding Title Design. He would join Caliri again animating on three spots for Children’s Medical Center, one of which, Brooke, won Best Animated Commercial at the 38th Annual Annie Awards. On the most recent Caliri project, Anthony was Lead Animator for the music video The Shins: The Rifle's Spiral.
Anthony is the creator of StopMotionAnimation.com, an online educational resource for stop motion animators. Launched in April of 1999, the site has become a popular meeting place for aspiring and experienced animators.
