Latest Work

Striking a similar vein to Ben’s multi award-winning Red Bull Kaleidoscope film, both B&Q adverts feature kinetic sets and plenty of camera trickery, with no additional special effects.

Ross Neil, Executive Creative Director of WCRS said: “B&Q are rightly proud of their colleagues for their knowledge, friendliness and can-do attitudes, so we wanted to feature them front and centre in the ads, but this always comes with some risk because you never know if they’ll be able to act. What we have made here is a very elegant solution to showing the helpfulness of B&Q colleagues and they’ve come out looking great. Some genuine heroes in these ads. Ben Scott of RSA has turned the scripts from complexity to beautifully choreographed pieces that really show off the willingness, dedication and expertise of B&Q colleagues in a way that is a joy to watch.”

As well as Directing Commercials, Ben designs for both Film and TV. his speciality is set building in far flung exotic locations.  Something which has during his career, taken him to deserts (The Phantom Menace), jungles, (The Beach), and the Arctic circle (Far North). However  that doesn't mean that he is not at home with a good dose of 1930's fashion (Cracks / A Good Woman).
