“Sebastian works tirelessly to promote your movie and he will always be your knight in shining armor championing your film. I can say this from personal experience having known Sebastian over the last 30 years—we went to film school together and he told me long ago that he was going to help me make a movie. After shooting my last film on a shoestring budget, I was lost on how we were going to complete it once we ran out of money. We made the age-old mistake of starting production without our full budget. Yes, big mistake. Enter Sebastian. He rescued the show from filmic purgatory and put us back on the road to completion. Miracle worker—he is! Bottom line is Sebastian's years of experience coupled with his knowledge of the film industry make him truly invaluable. Thank you, Sebastian, for believing in my movie.”
– Oliver Robins (Celebrity Crush, Poltergeist)
"I've known Sebastian for years and always trust his instincts, applaud his taste, respect his savvy and admire his connections. In the midst of a global pandemic, when we had shut down in the middle of production on our film '18½,' Sebastian came to our rescue and found us the partners we needed to finish the film."
– Dan Mirvish (18 1/2, Bernard and Huey, Co-Founder of the Slamdance Film Festival)
"I have had the extreme pleasure of knowing and working with Sebastian Twardosz for over twenty years. His knowledge, expertise and resources are unsurpassed in this business. He is a tenacious advocate, a reliable confidante, and a true friend. Not to mention, he's worked with some of the biggest and brightest and they all sing his praises. As a filmmaker, you won't find someone more passionate and thorough to work on your behalf than Sebastian Twardosz."
– Ryan Craig (Small Town Saturday Night)
"Sebastian is as straight-forward and forthright as they come. He has a vast network of connections and respect within the industry and tirelessly pursues each means to a resolved end."
– Darren Miller (Mission: Impossible I-III, Suspect Zero, Vanilla Sky)
"I have known Sebastian Twardosz since 1995 and have witnessed firsthand his tireless work ethic, passion and enthusiasm for everything in which he chooses to involve himself. He has always been one of my biggest supporters and has consistently made generous use of his voluminous contacts on my behalf over the years. He does not give up on people or projects he believes in -- and nobody works harder."
– Kurt Kuenne (Batkid Begins, Dear Zachary)
"Sebastian is truly a diamond in the rough when finding counsel for a film. As first-time independent filmmakers, the obstacles we navigated entering into the business with our first feature, “The Arbors”, would have been near-impossible without him. Time and again Sebastian demonstrated his passion and desire for our project to be recognized, helping us garner acceptance at renowned festivals such as Austin and Nashville, connecting us to press websites such as Dread Central and Rue Morgue for some stellar reviews, assisting in finding legal counsel and finally seeing us through the finish line with distribution. Sebastian is shrewd, strategic, honest, and willing to go the extra mile where most are not. Our gratitude cannot be expressed enough – this movie would not have reached its heights without his guidance. We would 100% recommend his expertise."
