I’m Scott Balles, a freelance animator & animation director based in Brooklyn, NY. Some of my work has won awards, screened internationally in film festivals, and has appeared in many broadcast spots in North America and Europe. Clients I’ve worked for include Coca-Cola, Heinz, Amazon, BBC, Budweiser, Time Warner, Trident, Yoplait, Cartoon Network, American Eagle, The Lincoln Motor Company, Apple, and Google.

Born in Pennsylvania, I studied animation, drawing, and art history at Edinboro University of PA and at Temple University in Rome, Italy. Also a drummer since age 11, I’ve performed in many bands and musical ensembles in Pittsburgh and NYC.

With a foundation in character animation, illustration, and music, I aim to create a unique visual style through a strong sense of timing, storytelling, design, and the fundamentals of animation.
