"There is always a degree of trepidation when engaging a new vendor. Setting up a pipeline, review protocols, and establishing a good working relationship are things that take time. EMS was a quick study, and it wasn't long before we were finaling shots. Combine that with a good cause and great attitude, and you have yourself a positive all-around experience, and a vendor that will be on my list to call next time around."

VFX Producer, Lionsgate

"From the very moment I had heard about Exceptional Minds, I was captivated by the mission to help young minds find creative expression. Upon meeting the students, and seeing all of their inspired work and devotion to their craft, I knew they would be a great fit on DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. The Exceptional Minds team completed 43 shots in stereo for DAWN, on time and at the highest standard of quality.
For your hard work, dedication and professionalism, the entire DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Visual Effects crew thanks you. We look forward to working with you again in the future."

"The Exceptional Minds roto team is an outstanding resource. The work is consistently flawless as they only take on the work they can master, and that they do with the utmost precision. We are grateful for their reliable deliveries and collaborative spirit on so many projects."

Dan Schmit,
CEO/VFX Supervisor,
Engine Room Hollywood


"I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the work Exceptional Minds did on Avengers: Age of Ultron. One of the biggest challenges in creating a film with nearly 3000 visual effects, is how to maintain the highest quality of work throughout, especially when so many VFX companies spread across the globe, are involved. From Hulk emoting, inches from the camera lens to our avenging team battling an army of robots, and everything in between, it's not just the big hero shots that matter; it's absolutely every single little detail which creates the whole aesthetic, the whole story. And the work you've done, has helped to build that. I hope you're as proud of your work up on the screen as we are. Please pass on our thanks to the entire team. And, congratulations!"
