Jason will take us behind the scenes of some of the studio's most innovative projects and show how the use of Autodesk® Softimage®, Autodesk® 3DS Max® and Autodesk® Maya in conjunction with other tools from the Autodesk® Entertainment Creation Suite® is putting Leviathan and its clients at the forefront of innovation.

Simplifying Complexity: Revolutionizing Traditional Production
Jason White, Leviathan
After first achieving wide recognition as a fine artist, Jason White began his rise in the field of animation by co-founding Lift Motion Design in Chicago, where he forged strong collaborative relationships with leading advertising agency creatives for a Who's Who of brands. He then helped launch Leviathan as its executive creative director, and after just two years, the studio has emerged as an industry leader in creating phenomenal visual experiences across all media platforms.
"ISAM Live" is among the studio's most high-profile projects to-date (featured in the 2012 Communication Arts Interactive Annual and nominated in the 2011 Association of Independent Music Awards and the 2012 AICP Next Awards), along with other buzz-worthy feats for musical artists Drake and Skrillex, as well as for major brands including Callaway, Dodge, HP, Samsung and The North Face, to name but a few. Leviathan will also soon release "Lilith," its first dramatic short film, which will have its world premiere at Pause Fest 2012.
