Infrastructure Upgrades
Deakin University - Motion Capture Studio - Motion.Lab

Scott was selected to Chair the Technical Committee for the planning and development of Deakin University's Motion Capture facility, established in partnership with Multimedia Victoria. For Scott, the initiative comprised a major refurbishment of an unused stage space, fly-tower upgrade, equipment purchase and the continued management of Staff and Operations. The facility is currently the largest Motion Capture Studio in Australia, and won a coveted Vice-Chancellor's Award for Excellent Contributions to the University.

In a world first for a full-length opera, the 3D “Flying Dutchman” premiered at St Kilda’s Palais Theatre on 14 February, 2015. It was presented by Motion.Lab, Victorian Opera, and the Australian Youth Orchestra – and was the first of three operas being created as part of a three-year research project funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC) between Deakin Motion.Lab and Victorian Opera. Focusing on projected 3D digital scenery that took Deakin’s Motion.Lab six months to create, the 3D glasses allowed the audience to become immersed within the tempestuous Wagnerian world of wild oceans, stormy fjords, doomed lovers and a ghostly sailing ship. The technology provided an illusion of depth that would have been unimaginable for an opera set only a few years ago.

The Deakin Motion.Lab, in partnership with Federation Square, presented Vox Lumen: People into Light at White Night 2015. Vox Lumen transformed Federation Square into an interactive world with stunning abstract digital projections, dancer-driven live motion capture, and interactive content that tracked the movement of the crowds across Melbourne’s biggest night of arts and culture. The event was a combination of live performance and audience interactivity.

Gold Coast Arts Centre - Lighting System Upgrade
Scott was the Designer & Project Manager of the lighting control upgrade which included a major overhaul of the ethernet and DMX infrastructures, substantial power upgrades, console purchase (Grand MA), off-line & remote access and the implementation of wireless control. This initiative saw the first Grand MA in Australia installed to a permanent theatrical environment. Scott was also involved in the development of the Arts Centre's Paradise Showroom performance space. The Showroom now runs an MA console (MA Light), with seamless connectivity between the showroom and the main Lyric Theatre.
Young People's Theatre - Theatre Rebuild
For the Young People's Theatre Inc, Scott was instrumental in the rebuilding of the theatre after the venue was gutted by fire in 1995. The theatre now houses a double-purchase fly system, Strand lighting control and a substantial patching infrastructure.
Music
Scott is an accomplished drummer and musician, having trained under Pat Charker (Robertson), Don Osborne and Al Vincer.

Scott was employed regularly as a Lighting Technician working on touring productions for the venue including: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Paul Dainty), Tap Dogs (STC/Backrow Productions), Hot Shoe Shuffle (DAE), Coppelia (QB) & HMS Pinafore, The Mikado (Essgee) among others. In addition, Scott worked with regular users of the Civic Theatre and the Civic Playhouse such as Hunter Valley Theatre Company, Flying Teapot Theatre Company and Opera Hunter.
