The Team

 

 MATT LEBLANC - Creator & Producer

Over the years, I’ve found partners that shared the same vision to make my productions bigger and bolder. It wasn’t easy to let go of total control, but when I did, I realized how far I could take the FUSION Productions concept. The biggest hurdle for me has been to trust others with my baby — but I’m so glad I did! I can feel just how big my productions are becoming simply by looking at the variety and scope of expertise the people I work with leading up to the next show bring to the stage. The core team is listed below, but I work with other talented people like sketch artists and animators that play a big role even if they are not part of the core team. When the show hits the stage, more than 75 people have worked directly or indirectly on or in the production. It’s such a great feeling to see this, considering I did everything myself for the first show in 2011!

Matt LeBlanc has risen from virtual anonymity in his home province of New Brunswick, to become one of the most popular artists in eastern Canada and beyond. His unique blend of art and commerce has allowed LeBlanc to sell over 3,000 paintings in more than 20 countries in less than seven years.

His work has been featured in home decor magazines, blogs and on television shows airing on HGTV Canada. Matt’s ability to design a unique piece of art based on his client’s current décor has been a big asset in developing his strong brand as an artist.
