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.

Sebastien has worked on three Assassin's Creed titles (Freedom Cry, Rogue, and Syndicate), and most recently Ubisoft's For Honor.
