SMOTION is home to freelance Motion Designer Scott Marlow.

Based in Bournemouth on the UK South Coast, I am a Multi-skilled 2D and 3D Motion Designer. With over 28 years experience in design, branding and marketing; I work directly with brands and businesses, agencies and studios.

Throughout my career I’ve been lucky enough to work with many talented teams on some really interesting brands such as Lakeland, Screwfix, B&Q, PSA, Peugeot, Volvo, Citroen, Fiat and BMW.

I’ve Art directed magazines, managed busy studios, directed South African photo-shoots, presented at Adobe conferences and once stood on James Bond’s foot at the Chelsea Flower Show…true story. Turned out he was a really nice bloke. I’ll tell you sometime.

What does SMOTION DO?

We tell your story. That can be in the form of anything from a looping animated Gif to a 5-minute bespoke animation.

Concept, Storyboard, Design, Animation, and even Voiceover, should you require. All created with passion, care, attention to detail, and creative flair.

I am also highly skilled in conceptual image creation, in both 3D and 2D .

Sometimes this is just me, or in some cases, project dependent, I collaborate with other talented filmmakers, photographers and writers.

What’s your set-up?

I work from my home studio, equipped with Cinema 4D, Octane Render, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere and all the other essential Adobe Creative Cloud apps.

For the gear heads among you, much as i’ve loved Apple Mac for decades, all this is run on a custom build PC with Intel i9 9900K i9 CPU, and Geoforce RTX2080TI GPU supplied by my friends at ASU Custom Computers.

Sooo much faster.

Can you come in and freelance at our place?

I’m happy working from my studio at home, but of course, sure, let’s discuss!
