Downtown Sudbury, a not-for-profit Business Improvement Area (BIA) association dedicated to the growth of Greater Sudbury's downtown, commissioned Séguin to produce a short titled "Portrait of Downtown Sudbury," the objective of which was not just to boost tourism, but to remind people who live in Sudbury of what they have.[13] Based on this success, he was then commissioned to make a similar short for the West Nipissing Chamber of Commerce, titled “West Nipissing — Quelle surprise!”.[14]

In a newspaper interview, Séguin acknowledged that filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and that while “everyone’s always looking for a formula, [...] at the end of the day you’re making a film you would like to watch.”[15]

Since 2015, Séguin is a professor at Laurentian University's Motion Picture Arts program, wherein he specializes in giving practice-based courses, like Photography.[16] Regarding cinematography, he has also given numerous practice-based workshops, like The Motion in the Music workshop sponsored by the not-for-profit Music and Film in Motion, [17] and within the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) program offered at Confederation Secondary School.[18]
