We are a tight team of seasoned professionals–writers, producers, creative directors, directors, editors, designers, animators, and VFX artists–all working together to create greatness.  

We’ve amassed a body of work of over 1,000 projects. Super Bowl commercials, brand anthems, infomercials, explainer videos, internal communications, live events, and concerts. 

From big budgets to small budgets and from global campaigns to one-off videos, we work with every client to understand and define their goals so that we can create maximum impact across all channels.

We take the work seriously, and ourselves, not so much. And we never settle. 

Curt Fleming | CEO / Partner

Curt is our fearless captain, diving headfirst into strategy, creative, and concept development for our clients. From the spark of an idea to the final touches on storyboards, he's in his element. He's all about the 3B's - Big ideas, Big impact, Big results. His mantra? Laser-like focus. Master your craft. Be the best. And, collaborate with awesome folks who want to do awesome things for awesome clients. Simple as that. And, it's been his guiding light for two decades now. Whenever we get too cozy, he shakes things up, reminding us that "greatness never transcends from comfort zones". Curt ensures we have all the ingredients for success: the right squad, the right tech, a dash of fun, a safe space to stumble, and a pinch of adrenaline – because that's where magic, hustle, and efficiency truly thrive.


Scott Fleming | Director / Partner

Scott's our guru for everything that says 'action' at Merit/Andrew. He's the boss of colossal multi-year campaigns, small product launches, and everything in between. Scott's a hands-on creative both behind the camera and the edit bay. He’s a creative who thrives on collaboration with our deep bench of creatives and filmmakers. A proud alumnus of the Vancouver Film School, Scott has been conjuring up magic almost his entire life. With over 500 directorial projects under his belt and shelves of shiny hardware, Scott’s invaluable experience, knowledge and wisdom is tapped everyday to make visions become reality.


Caroline Scott | Head of Production / Partner

Big C brings it all to life. On brief. On time. On budget. Exceeding expectations and managing the people and the process—effortlessly. She’s been the “/” in Merit/Andrew since 2002 as the unsung hero that brings it all together. Over 1,000 productions under her belt, she’s helped prep Will Ferrell as a high school football coach, rocked out to AC/DC with Rob Riggle, had pistachios with R Lee Ermey, and been yelled at by Jane Lynch. Robert Mondavi called her “nails” (affectionately, of course). That stuck. Because if you want to know what it takes to be successful in this business. Nails.


Jake Klarkowski | Producer

Jake can be found anywhere the work sends him. He’s Caroline’s right hand making it happen behind the scenes on the big stuff and front and center on the other stuff. Jake was a tour manager for October Fall before getting into the film industry. We hired Jake as an AD on a WD-40/R Lee Ermey job back in 2010 and that was it. From 1-day product shoots to 40-day multi-state commercial beasts, Jake gets it done (flawlessly, with only minor spelling errors) with a laugh and a smile. He's got that gritty Chicago work ethic, an LA creative eye, and that New York no-nonsense 'let's get it done' attitude.

Jason Rapp | Head of Animation

Animation's a big deal around here at Merit/Andrew, and Jason's been our resident wizard since 2010. If you've got an idea, Jason and his team can make it real. And if your imagination's on empty, he's got a full tank ready to go. He's always in the thick of things, sleeves rolled up, ready to dive into the impossible. Whether it's VFX, 2D, or 3D animation for TV, digital or experiential projects, Jason and his team have got it covered. He's a pro with the trickiest software, though he's hilariously bad at email and Google calendar. His spelling's a disaster too, so you know he's a certified CG rock star.

Michael Belanger | Editor & Head of IT

Michael's the oil in our Merit/Andrew machine - he's the wizard working magic behind the curtain. This guy's a multi-skilled maestro in post-production, wielding Avid, Premiere, and Resolve like a champ. Whether he's at the helm as editor or providing rock-solid support, his storytelling prowess and creativity shine through. But wait, there's more! Michael's also the guardian of our high-tech systems. From centralized servers for editing and animation to a hefty render farm and Quantum storage, he keeps them humming along smoothly from our Orange County, CA hub. Michael may be a behind-the-scenes hero, but his work guarantees every scene we put out there is pure gold.

In 2018, we were brought aboard to help bring the Uber Elevate cabin to life for Safran and Uber. We`re usually hush-hush about our aerospace projects, but hey, we can chat about this one! This new eVTOL (that`s electric vertical takeoff and landing for the uninitiated) concept is next-level stuff. If you want to check another aerospace project we produced with technology you probably use today, click the link in our bio. ...

Overdose touches lives in many ways. Today is International Overdose Awareness Day, a day to work to end overdose and to remember those we have lost and the loved ones they have left behind. To bring awareness, we partnered with our colleague and good friend Greg Kuehn from @peligromusic to make a music video for his song `Medicine Man,` which deals with both addiction and mental health. The full video will be released in October (for National Substance Abuse Prevention Month), but in honor of those who so often go unseen, here is a preview introduced by Greg.

He`s a legend. A PP (Post Prodigy). A total NERD (Narrative Editor of Real Dialogue). And a real ASS (Accomplished Server Slayer). Today we celebrate the one and only Michael Belanger--editor extraordinaire and IT guru. He`s a wild blend of the right and left brain. Part storyteller, part byte wrangler. Around these parts, he`s known as "Merlin," and we`re lucky to have this guy on our team. Give him a shout-out for his 5 year anniversary with the Merit/Andrew crew!
