His short films have been programmed across multiple platforms including international film festivals, art galleries, and installations, and have won a handful of awards along the way. One of Scott’s more recent films, Infinitude, was curated as part of Vimeo's “Staff Pic” collection and featured by arts and cultural blogs such as Wired, Gizmodo, Petapixel, and Fstoppers.
