- Getting the opportunity to take care of my wife, Claudine, who has so often taken care of our family.
- Catching my breath, after a crash project helping to create a History channel doc special (in 3-1/2 weeks!) on Nostradamus: Election 2016. I would've never predicted I'd work on a show like that, but then again, I'm no Nostradamus. I'm glad I did.
- Feeling grateful for baseball, and its positive distraction to these American times.
- Feeling excited to record more meditation music with friend and collaborator Rich Tozzoli.
- Starting to read Bruce Springsteen's autobiography. Though we've never met, I often feel like he's mentored me... and yes, I am from New Jersey.
- Continuing to re-ignite a long-distance relationship with my brother after years of estrangement. Grateful for this and his unique perspective on life.
- Watching my kids grow further into very cool people that I really like - and love.
Recently finished producing a talent reel for chef Ariane Duarte. Includes excerpts of her showdown with Bobby on "Beat Bobby Flay," her challenges and victories on Top Chef with Tom Colicchio and the iconic Martha Stewart, many of her fun appearances on NBC's Today Show and more. Ariane is a top-rated chef who brings comfort food to a new level: both sophisticated & unpretentious and always…delicious! She's a sweet & sassy Jersey Girl - and executive chef/owner of the lauded Ariane Kitchen & Bar in Verona, NJ (formerly of Culinariane in Montclair, NJ). Look out for her on your screen!
The Before I Die Wall is a beautiful community art project created by artist Candy Chang, who used it as perspective and a healing tool after going through a difficult time. It sparked a movement that has organically spread around the world. Some friends of mine brought it to my town in NJ, in the alley of a cafe. As a gift to my friends, I made a sweet and super short film on its opening, which happened on a gorgeous early Fall day. - scott
The Telly's have arrived! We won 2 Telly Awards for the It's Who You Know web series. One for the series and one for the film on Ray Levier. This series is such a feel-good project, and it feels even better when people get it and give it props. Thanks to all who watched, believed and participated - and to collaborator Eric Feldman helping to make it happen. Onward!
The last installment of some great music tech videos we shot for Sonnox plug-ins. This one features WingTip's own awesome Claudine Ohayon! Claudine is an Emmy-award winning producer, who spends most of her time as a professional VoiceOver actor with William Morris Endeavor. Watch how she has embraced technology and state-of-the-art audio software to compete at the highest level. We also did segments with legendary drummer Omar Hakim, and recording engineer Peter Moshay. Sonnox did nice job putting them together with our footage.
Scott just finished off a project as co-creative leader on a team that produced 66 short films to be submitted to the prestigious Cannes Lions awards by media giant Omnicom, and many of their agencies (RAPP, The Marketing Arm and many more). Another great collaboration with show-runner Eric Feldman, as well as Original Productions. Our team showed fellow Creatives why these campaign were brilliant and award-worthy. Wishing them luck in June!
Another new episode of It's Who You Know! Meet our friend Mark Fewell, who approaches every aspect of his life like an adventure - whether he's working as an entrepreneur, a journalist, surfer, TV host or on the board men's health charity Movember. An inspiring combination of curiosity, creativity, fearlessness and joy for life. Dig in!
Here's a sweet little video we put together for author Laura Zinn Fromm on her book "Sweet Survival: Tales of Cooking & Coping." It's a collection of essays interwoven with recipes that all lead toward using the kitchen and food - in a good way - to navigate the dysfunctions of life. You can get the book at Greenpoint Press.
Scott recently directed a short film that will be part of the STAND UP TO CANCER event on Friday September 5 at 8pm. Its on about 30 networks including ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and, of course, ESPN NEWS. Scott's film is about an inspiring - and classy - woman named Beverly who is surviving cancer and thriving thanks to a clinical trial that SU2C created and funded. The star-studded event - produced by Tenth Planet Productions - will be amazing. Please watch and maybe even crack the wallet open. It's really a cause worth getting behind.
It's Who You Know (IWYK) - Launched!
You've gotta meet this friend of mine… Some people are so fascinating, they deserve an hour long documentary. Do you have 5 minutes?

Scott recently directed some intimate music & interview videos for modern NYC blues artist Keith Paine. Imagine if Eddie Vedder was laying down some sultry urban soul. Great vibe.
We created this fun "About Us" for the wonderful Bike & Walk Montclair, a nationally recognized non-profit advocacy group. Towns that are pedestrian and bicycle friendly have thriving local businesses, healthier citizens, higher real estate values and stronger sense of community. It's a Win-Win-Win…! This cause is near & dear to WingTip's heart.
We recently shot a cool video project mixing musical, video and technical worlds for the prestigious audio software company Sonnox, who did a great job putting it together. A profile with legendary audio engineer/producer Peter Moshay (Hall & Oates) on how he uses their software to create world-class recordings. Pete also produces the hit tv/web show Live From Daryl's House.
