“Tony is a brilliant collaborator in all phases and realms of the visual communication spectrum and a very decent human being to boot! Peace."

-Tony Kaye, Director

Detachment, American History X

“Tony is an incredibly talented artist. Whenever we have the opportunity to have him in the office, we know that the resulting boards will achieve and oftentimes, surpass, expectations. He is efficient, easily adjusts to last-minute changes and bolsters the development process by offering his own ideas. Tony's a great storyteller and collaborator and we always enjoy working with him!”

-Warren Fischer, Director


“Great story boards! I am the director of “Asockalypse,”

and working with Tony was the best. He is talented, professional, funny and had very creative and helpful suggestions. He went way over and beyond on this project...and he is a very nice guy.”

-Carrie Schoenfeld, Director


“Tony always wants to understand how something works and is always striving to make projects better with this understanding. Exemplary in his work ethic, he has the ability to very quickly compose and visualize things.”

-John Amos

Course Director at Full Sail University

"Tony is always easy to work with and the consummate professional. He has a talent for taking original concepts

and adding his own creative artistic skill to further develop and enhance them."

-Chad Rogers, Producer

Cyber Griffin, Inc.

“I hired Tony Santo to visualize several network spots . His storyboard and conceptual skills were instrumental in selling the spot, and he happily helped the director solve some staging issues in pre-production.

“Tony is an extremely talented traditional artist with an amazing attitude. I was always impressed by his willingness to receive and act on critical feedback. His top strengths as an Art Director are his abilities to visualize his thoughts with his excellent drawing skills, his expertise in visual storytelling, and his endearing personality.”

-Mike Young, Creative Director

EA Sports

“Whilst I had some concern that an artist unfamiliar with our organization's work would be able to follow the high-level,

and at sometimes vague discussions, Tony handled this excellently. He even facilitated the group discussion at times when focus and clarity were needed. He conducted himself professionally at all times and his work was first-rate. At the feedback session where Tony's work was showcased, the response was excellent. Those not in his breakout group were instantly able to engage with the discussion, and many commented on how impactful the work was.” 

-Kay Hallenbeck, Governance

The College Board

"Tony is great manager. While we worked on together on Madden NFL, he did an amazing job during preproduction. His storyboard skills were indispensable and made way for a visually stunning result in the final product."
