Clyde Scott is a director and digital artist who has created national commercial spots, in-concert visuals for stadium tours, short films and highly synchronized works of video art to accompany classical music. In 1996, Mr. Scott founded Electric Sheep, a Miami Beach-based design boutique specializing in motion-graphics, where he and his team crafted numerous film and broadcast visuals for clients such as Disney, Shakira, MTV, Sony and Caravan Pictures.
In 2001, Mr. Scott joined the New World Symphony. In the following years he worked closely with Frank Gehry and Gehry Partners on the integration of video and projection technology into the New World Center in an unprecedented fashion. Mr. Scott is now the organization’s Director of Video Production, working with Michael Tilson Thomas, guest artists and the Fellows to find creative ways to merge video and classical music in both education and performance.
