"Arthur Evrensel has been an amazing 'partner' for me as my career in the film industry has developed. I do not use the word partner lightly, for there are many people who are involved in helping a producer get a film made, yet extremely few who take such a personal involvement."

- Dean English (Perfect Circle Productions), West Vancouver, ON

"He serves as outstanding counsel on every level. He understands all the sides of the deal and has always provided us clear, sound advice."

- Shawn Williamson (Brightlight Pictures Inc.), Burnaby, BC

"Arthur's wealth of experience and attention to detail have made him an invaluable part of the Three Thirty Five/Corner Gas team. From our first development deal to the end of our current season five, he has been with us every step of the way. His well-researched and smart advice has helped guide us through our American sale, formatting/remake deals, short and long form network contracts, as well as digital/online and conventional distribution. Arthur's cheerful, yet firm, style has been a real bonus when stick handling through the tricky relationships that sometimes occurs with all our various partners."

- David Storey (Three Thirty Five Productions), Vancouver, BC
