(Chicago, Illinois--April 25, 2013) It has been an eventful week for everyone at the design-focused production studio Leviathan, and the company's principals are very proud to announce two major award wins. Over this past weekend at the 46thWorldFest-Houston International Film Festival, Leviathan's original short film "Lilith" was honored with the Platinum Remi Award for Visual/Special Effects. Then, at the FITC Toronto Design and Technology Festival on Monday, Leviathan's executive creative director Jason White personally accepted the FITC Best Animation Award for the studio's sensational "Wooden Toy" project for Ninja Tune recording artist Amon Tobin.

"We have an awful lot of people to thank for putting us in the position to earn this recognition from the judges of the world's longest-running independent film festival, and from the FITC, which covers the future of everything innovative, technical and creative," White began. "Across the spectrum of our phenomenal creative partners including V Squared Labs and Red Moon Theater among many others, unbelievably talented and passionate artists and craftspeople, to my fellow principals Chat Hutson and Matt Daly, we are counting a lot of blessings this week. Immense thanks to everyone who has played a part in our success to date, and with this recognition, we are even more inspired to create phenomenal visual experiences."
Since launching in 2010, Leviathan's collaborations with agencies, brands and leading filmmakers have rendered scores of sensational projects across all markets and industries and earned award recognition from the Association of Independent Music, Communication Arts Magazine, the AICP, The D Show, The One Club, and the Themed Entertainment Association.
Earlier in his day at FITC, Jason presented his original talk entitled "Hyperblender, the collision of art and technology" an hour-long presentation discussing vision, our past and future of creating transformative visual experiences. According to feedback from conference organizers and on Twitter, it was one of the most talked-about of the conference's 70 sessions, which drew over 1,200 attendees from around the world over the past three days.
Next, Jason is among the speakers scheduled to present at the very first COLLIDER Digital Production Conference http://colliderevents.com
