SCOTT KENNELL

I am an Emmy award winning director/animator based out of Brooklyn, New York. Since graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design in the spring of 2012 I have had the opportunity to contribute work in both film and television. Currently I work as a Director of Animation and VFX for Nick Jr. in New York City. When I’m not hiking or golfing, I continue to push my craft as a fine artist in painting and sculpture. Recently, I have taken up woodworking as the tangible expression of my art.

I consider myself a storyteller first, and from a very young age I fell in love with the challenge in telling that story through my art. My goal with any piece is to transport the viewer to the emotional place from which I created it. Whether through cartoon strips, comic books, or flipbooks drawn on post-it note pads I spent my childhood seeking new ways to express myself. Animation seemed a logical calling, and I continue to push the medium to this day, seeking to try things that I haven’t seen done before. My life — and my art — is a perpetual work in progress. I will never stop learning, and I’m always looking for the next story.
