Ye Olde Hunchback








1993: doing freelance in Toronto, after the tour in Ireland with Bluth. Hollywood calls, in the form of Walt Pisney Features, asking me to work on The Huncback of Notre Dame. Arrived scant weeks after the Northridge earthquake. Roy Conli was producing, Dave Goetz had snagged the art directorship. Went in as journeyman Layout Person. Here's the evidence.

Incredible work Scott! Glad that you shared them with us.

Those are just insane. It amazes me that you can get so much personality into archetecture. They are like characters in their own right.

These are amazing, especially the first one. Disney should consider building a cathedral like that in EPCOT center.

I love the last one particularly, as it really invites the viewer right into the scene. My eye just wants to explore further down those two alleyways, or enter the courtyard where the little tree beckons through the arch. Just beautiful work, Scott!

Hi Scott. It's Brewster. It's still amazing work even now. Sheridan College is so far in the past but I can still see that German barmaid walk cycle you did in my head. Oh and Lynn Naylors burro walk cycle too. Funny what sticks with you after nearly 30 years. Great stuff.

Beautiful stuff Scott !.Great angles and amazing draughtsmanship .

If I remember rightly you did a spot of teaching at Ballyfermot ? My wife remembers when you used to teach story there .

I attended there myself , but after you were gone I think . Bluth closed pretty soon after that and opened up in Phoenix .

Most of these were concept pieces done before production started, to help settle the look of the film.. the big downshot was a production layout, but i went too far with it.. and i knew that going in. Somebody shoulda stopped me, but i loved doing the drawing.Only a piece of it shows up in the shot in the final film so in a way, it was a waste of effort. Producers take note!
