•   "Working with Scott was a lot of fun. His boundless enthusiasm and talent helped us to develop some great product demos.
    Scott has an amazing hunger to create and learn which made him a perfect candidate for the rapidly changing environment at
    ATI. Scott's even temperament and great people skills also helped us significantly during the more stressful parts of the
    project. He is a pleasure to work with and I have no problem recommending him to anyone who requires an injection of
    creativity and passion." August 3, 2007

    to work with and has a tireless desire to better his craft. Scott has a unique ability to envision a story and bring it to life. With
    just a staff of 3 artists ATI requires its artist to have a broad range of artistic and technical skills. Scott successfully delivered
    multiple demos for the Radeon 9700 product launch all while learning Maya. I would recommend him for any team that needs
    an experienced and versatile artist.” July 16, 2007

       I have had the pleasure to work with Scott LeBlanc on several different projects over a number of years. Scott has brought
        a wide array of creative talent to fill gaps and/or lead various aspects of our broad needs. His proficiency has shined in
        everything from traditional storytelling and story boarding to CGI related production, including character design,
        modeling, phenomenal animating.
       Scott has also been a valuable asset when it comes to choosing and learning new technologies. He tends to master these
        quickly and can easily implement them into a functioning pipeline.
       Scott brings fresh, creative ideas to everything he puts his talents to. He is a great listener, and thorough thinker. Scott
        offers multiple solutions to every problem. In the end he provides 100% or more of what is needed.
        Scott's sense of humor, even temper and experience are a joy to work with, which help keep things in balance. He
        processes criticism better than most people I've worked with. This results in a positive spin on everything he does."
