Sava attended The Academy of Art in San Francisco where he majored in Illustration. At the age of only 24, Sava’s passion to tell stories led to a painting career that earned him a membership in the prestigious New York Society of Illustrators. Eager to learn a new trade, Sava’s career in the video game industry began at Sega as an animator. Moving beyond animation, Scott was soon employed by some of the top game companies in the industry as a game designer, art director, and producer. Some of his credits include “Tecmo Hockey,” “StarCraft 64,” “the Game of Life,” “X-Files,” “Alien vs. Predator,” and “Fight Club.”
Determined to try his hand at feature films, Sava left the gaming industry and landed a job as the lead animator on the sequels to the popular Universal film, “Casper.” With his work in high demand, Scott became a weekly contributor to Fox Kid’s Saturday Morning television shows such as “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” “Digimon,” “Spider-Man,” and “Nascar Racers.” In 2000, Sava founded Blue Dream Studios, a full-service CGI Animation studio. Handling television episodes, video game cinematics, national television commercials, and music videos, Scott’s studio brings together some of the most talented artists in the world. The studio’s clientele include Walt Disney Studios, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Universal Pictures, Warner Brothers Television, Paramount Pictures, Marvel Comics, and DC Comics.
Sava’s love for storytelling continues to thrive in his latest vision: the creation of both comic books and children’s books. His works include the critically acclaimed comics, “The Dreamland Chronicles,” “The Lab,” and “Spider-Man: Quality of Life,” as well as children’s books such as “Teddy Bear Dreams,” “Ed’s Terrestrials,” and “Mighty Mites.”
Currently, Sava is writing, directing, and producing “Emperor”—Scott’s story of a Napoleonic emperor penguin who wants to rule the world—which is currently in production at Nickelodeon. His work can be found on television as well as in video games, film, children’s book, and comics.
