Lesly Benodin was a former employee at Big Idea. He was in charge of render management and cleanup for the animation of the VeggieTales videos. He worked from God Wants Me to Forgive Them!?! all the way to Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed. According to several DVD commentaries, Phil Vischer stated the reason why Lesly left Big Idea was because he suffered from stress from both working as the render manager and his part time job as a fireman. As soon as he left, he went to be a fireman full time.
