"Mr. Lemmer’s contribution to Image Engine has been demonstrated in the feature film project "Jurassic World" and  “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. His knowledge and experience in the industry has made him indispensable to the Canadian visual effects industry. His skill set is key to the ongoing growth of our company and local talent base."

​*********************************************

"I worked with Peer as his lead on Smurfs 2 and have nothing but great things to say about the experience. 

 

From the first shot, Peer showed great skill and was very professional. He rose very quickly to the top of my list and I gave him my most difficult shots, both physical animation and acting.  He handled everything, including a client prone to changing his mind, with patience and skill. 

 

His work is displayed in the movie with everything from ropes being untied and thrown off to an emotional climax of one of the main characters. 

 

I would work with him again in a heartbeat!"
