Jason White has become an international apostle for the kind of “transformative visual experiences” he builds as executive creative director of design-focused production studio Leviathan.
“In our third year, Leviathan has grown into exactly what my partners and I had set out to create: a new creative culture backed by a really cool story and a custom creative processes we invented ourselves,” White says. “We want to share this culture.”
Leviathan executive producer Jason White departed Thursday, Nov. 1 for Melbourne, Australia to attend the second international Pause Fest Digital Festival, Nov. 8-11, that brings together world leaders and creative innovators, and to participate as a speaker amid famous companies and present Leviathan’s first short film.
When his company eatdrink started to bounce back from the recession in 2009, Chad Hutson turned to Matt Daly, formerly a CG and VFX artist at Optimus, to augment his downsized staff and win bids for Walt Disney Imagineering and Maytag.
The two began to envision a design studio “grounded in broadcast CG but extending into experiential design,” with Daly as chief technologist and Hutson as executive producer. They brought on Jason White from lift as executive creative director, and launched Leviathan in 2010.

More than 300 guests came out on a beautiful, balmy summer’s eve last Thursday to celebrate the first anniversary of design-focused hybrid Leviathan.
They met the staff, saw the variety of work and met Tim Sepulveda, who recently filled Leviathan’s first design director’s position.
“We had a great mix of clients, peers, friends and family attend the party,” says executive creative director/partner Jason White of the event.
New design-driven 3D animation studio Leviathan moved into a West Loop building being rehabbed while new windows were still being hoisted into place, and worked late over the weekend to be ready for projects scheduled to start Monday.
Since that day in late May, “We’ve been eager to show the community that we’re real and we’re here,” says executive producer Chad Hutson.
