Biography

Daniel Scott is an award winning composer, music score producer, orchestrator and conductor for film and television.  He started his career in advertising and as arranger, artistic director and choir conductor for the direction of french adaptations of songs for Warner Brothers, Walt Disney pictures and Pixar films.

With more than twenty years of experience as a media composer for live action as well as animation, his musical voice spans from orchestral to minimal, classic to contemporary, epic to intimate.

Among other works, he has recently finished scoring BBE/Sagatoon/SpringEra/China Lion’s 3D animated feature film TROLL: THE TALE OF A TAIL from the animators & designers of SHREK and MADAGASCAR with L.A. director Kevin Munroe (TMNT, Ratchet & Clank) which will be released worldwide throughout 2019. He has also created the soundtrack for renowned Israeli director Shemi Zarhin’s «emotionally rich and beautifully textured» (L.A. Times) THE KIND WORDS and the score for all five films of the Radio-Canada/PBS documentary series MONTRÉAL, MON AMOUR, MON HISTOIRE for which he received two Gémeaux Awards nominations.

2019 started with a collaboration with London director Peter Dodd (Freddy Frogface, Watership Down netflix mini series) for a Clas Ohlson commercial disguised as a charming short film titled Flo & Wing. The year continues with the scoring of the animated short Altötting with the National film board of Canada (NFB) and award winning German director Andreas Hykade (The Runt, Love and Theft) and the creation of the music for the action adventure series Amos: the mask hunter for IceWorks Pictures based on Bryan Perro’s best selling novels Amos Daragon.

A five time recipient of the SOCAN film and television Award, he has also received nine nominations at the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television’s GÉMEAUX Awards and GEMINI Awards for his contributions to drama, animation and documentary projects.

 
A storyteller at heart, Daniel is a team player who is valued for his collaborative spirit and for his ability to offer turnkey solutions for the creation of high end film and television scores.
