Scottie Harvey is a writer and animator from Los Angeles, now living in Brooklyn. She received her BFA & MFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she found animation’s unlikely twin in theatre. Her work revolves around the specific formalities of time-based mediums, be it through plays about ethically dubious depictions of violence on stage or painstakingly animated cartoons set to stream-of-consciousness babbling. While the content of her work is darkly comic, it is nestled inside of disarming stylistic imperfection, almost resembling childlike naïveté.

In 2020, her play “I Will Be Your Feet When You Need Them,” received the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival’s Paula Vogel Award in Playwriting, and her animation “We Could Throw a Rock” was featured in Sarah Lawrence’s poetry magazine Lumina. She takes stupidity very seriously.

“Darling, I’m marveling at it all” will be her final words.
