Chief Technology innovator

Remington Scott

Remington Scott, a ground breaking pioneer in computer graphic imagery and emerging media for more than 25 years, has distinguished himself in the field for having developed concepts and toolsets to implement them successfully years before other industry players took on similar challenges. So it’s no surprise to now find him at the cutting edge of Augmented Reality.

He most recently won acclaim for his work as performance capture director on CALL OF DUTY, ADVANCED WARFARE. Starring Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey, ADVANCED WARFARE is the latest title in the $11bn Call Of Duty franchise and was the top selling video game of 2014.

His achievements in motion pictures are extensive, including supervisory digital production under filmmakers Peter Jackson, Sam Raimi, Robert Zemeckis, Bryan Singer, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Zack Snyder and others.

For Jackson he supervised the Performance Capture team for THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS, which won an Academy Award for Achievement in Visual Effects for “using a computer motion capture system to create the split personality character of Gollum and Smeagol.”

For Sakaguchi he became the first professional to direct performance capture for a completely computer-generated theatrically released film. That motion picture was FINAL FANTASY: THE SPIRITS WITHIN, which was widely noted for its outstanding digitally created human characters from the earliest scenes to the conclusion and voted by Computer Graphic Society in the top 10 of the 100 GREATEST 3D MOVIES.

He was instrumental in creating the digital human characters for Visual Effects Academy Award winner SPIDER-MAN 2 and SUPERMAN RETURNS, as well as BEOWULF, WATCHMEN and ANI-MATRIX: FINAL FLIGHT OF THE OSIRIS. The Visual Effects Society nominated his work in the category of Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Picture for SPIDER-MAN 3.

His passion for digital technology started at an early age. Before graduating from New York’s School of Visual Arts, Remington created the first digitized home video game in the mid 1980s, a full decade before the technology became mainstream in the consumer marketplace. The design of the most realistic human forms in computer games today can be traced to his efforts. Similarly, in the early 1990s he pioneered three-dimensional performance capture technology for the digitization of human characters in games and movies. Over his career Remington has authored patents for realistic digital human animation and replication which can be seen on films such as AVATAR, RISE OF THE APES, TIN TIN, and THE HOBBIT.

Remington’s work has helped generate the methods and technology that will make Augmented Reality the most significant media platform of the 21st Century.
