Testimonials

“It was a pleasure to work with Can –he worked very independently and efficiently, grasped quickly the idea and produced audio design that fit the Hello Ruby brand beautifully.” 

-Linda Liukas, Hello Ruby

“I’ve know Can Uzer since he successfully applied to our Sound in New Media MA degree programme. Can is a multi-skilled sound designer and sound engineer who's projects range from on-location recordings for 3D movie to game audio and music production. Can wrote his Master's Thesis about game sound and the work got good evaluations from top professionals in the field. I'm happy to recommend Can for any kind of sound, audio or music related job or project.”

-Antti Ikonen, Aalto University

"Can has been a model student during his studies in SAE Istanbul. After he has completed his studies, we hired him as an Audio Supervisor, where he has shown his ability to communicate with students and deal with complex technical issues. As a student or an employee, Can earns my highest recommendation." 

-Tolga Tolun, SAE Institute Istanbul
