The studio’s founder has a desire to please all-comers...
Did you establish Scribble Pad Studios with any specific mission plan in mind – and if so, do you think you’ve fulfilled it?
The mission behind developing Scribble Pad Studios was to become one of the industry’s top design houses. It’s taken quite a bit of blood and sweat by the team, but I believe we’re definitely on the right track. The industry is constantly changing and new talent is greater than ever. We have to continue to develop ourselves, both as a studio and as artists, to surpass the never-ending competition on the rise.
Do you find the day-to-day running of the company gets in the way of satisfying your creative urges, or does it all feel like play?
Never have I felt limited by the studio’s needs. Developing the needs of the studio is in itself one of the creative urges that I have. It takes a lot of effort to direct a studio, but observing the results and watching both the artists and myself grow delivers a very compelling feeling. There are times when having to handle other aspects of the studio interject while working on a project, but in no way does that mean these matters interfere with my creative urges as an artist.
What makes the output of Scribble Pad unique, when you look around at other studios?
I would like to think we’re very adaptable to all of our clients’ needs. Since we understand the design process very thoroughly, we’re not restricted to genre or subject matter. Designing for environments, or characters, or props, vehicles, weapons, science fiction, fantasy and so on, you know… it’s all the same. Understanding our client’s needs is the most important factor when approaching a design, and thankfully has enabled us to become very versatile.
Do you have any more plans to work in film? If you could greenlight any one such movie project, what would it be?
Scribble Pad Studios does have plans to work on some forthcoming unannounced films. It would be thrilling to greenlight an internal studio project. Being able to direct and art direct such a project would be an amazing experience. I love working in a team effort with all individuals focusing on the same goal. I feel I would take much pride in being able to coordinate such an effort, although I know it’ll come with a heavy price.
