Scott started as a producer in talk radio in Edinburgh, before moving into video as an editor in Dublin.  After 5 years editing he made the move into production, working on broadcast projects such as interior design programme Showhouse and the travel series No Frontiers.

The key to his work at Big Red Engine is client satisfaction, and according to him, the best way to achieve this is by developing a truly collaborative relationship with the client.
