About

Scott Fassett has been working in the animation industry for over 20 years as a background and visual development artist. He got his start at Disney Feature Animation painting traditional and digital backgrounds on Hercules, Tarzan and Treasure Planet. Later he painted backgrounds and color scripts for Winnie the Pooh, Tinker Bell and Bambi II direct to video movies. Scott was then a visual development artist at Laika in Portland, Oregon doing visual development for characters, environments and props on Jack & Ben and The Mouse That Soared

Back in LA, Scott painted color scripts, backgrounds and matte paintings for Transformers Prime at Hasbro Studios. At Disneytoon Studios Scott created visual development pieces for highly realistic CG characters, props and environments, in addition to background painting, and color scripts for Planes, Planes: Fire and Rescue, Tinker Academy, and Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast.

While living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico Scott did some location design for High in the Clouds, Paul McCartney’s new animated feature with director Cody Cameron. The process: thumbnail sketches, rough layouts, cleaned up layouts, Maya 3-D sets, to final color rendered visual development images.

From 2015 to 2017, Scott and his wife Shelly travelled around Europe, Mexico and Southeast Asia, experiencing life through a different perspective, drawing, painting watercolors, photographing and writing about their adventures, which is now inspiring a series of picture books. 

After returning to the US, Scott painted backgrounds for an undisclosed animated series for Age of Learning in Glendale, CA. Next, Scott designed locations and painted backgrounds and visual development on the Uglydolls movie for ReelFX in Dallas Texas.

Beautiful Port Townsend, Washington is now "home" for Scott and his wife Shelly, where they are surrounded by cold water, wooden boats, and a vibrant, creative community. 

Scott is an 20-year Photoshop expert and has a working knowledge of Maya for 3-D design and visual development.
