Twizzlers "Welcome Home"

Pizza Pops "Robot Friend"
Captivated by film and storytelling since he was a kid, Scott Corbett attended Portfolio Center in Atlanta before becoming an award-winning copywriter at TBWA/Chiat/Day Los Angeles, David & Goliath, and DDB LA for brands including Lexus, Kia, HBO, Carl’s Jr., and Energizer.
After several successful years on the agency side, Scott turned his attention to directing. He began with a deliciously outrageous comedic campaign for Altoids (Leo Burnett Chicago), which was tempered with the absurd and surreal, but directed with restraint. The result was a unique, offbeat look. His Pizza Pops campaign was both hilarious and charming at the same time, and went on to win a Silver Lion at Cannes.
Nike hired Scott to direct “Barbershop,” a spot starring Manchester City footballer Mario Balotelli trying out a few new hairstyles. The spot quickly racked up almost 3 million views on YouTube. Recently, he’s helmed campaigns for Pier 1 out of The Richards Group and McDonald’s via Moroch.
Scott has been recognized in a number of high-profile publications, including Creativity, Adweek, SHOTS, and Communication Arts, and has garnered awards from The One Show, ADDY’s, and more. He is currently in post production on his highly anticipated short film, “Good Night Butterfly,” a contemplative period piece set in 1960’s Los Angeles.
