Interview with Ubisoft Quebec game animator Sebastien Dussault

In our 50th podcast we interview Ubisoft Quebec game animator Sebastien Dussault. One of the things that made this podcast unique is Sebastien is also one of our first Game animation alumni. So it was great catching up with him and hearing about his experience as a student and his transition to a professional animator at one of the largest gaming studios in the world. Sebastien has worked on three Assassin's Creed titles (Freedom Cry, Rogue, and Syndicate), and most recently Ubisoft's For Honor.
