ISAM Lives On for Leviathan

As you can see above, Chicago-based design-focused production studio Leviathan is very proud to have been put in the spotlight recently by 3D design, engineering and entertainment software leader Autodesk, Inc. This is the latest of many honors rolling in for studio partners Chad Hutson, Jason White and Matt Daly: Over the past months, the company has earned international awards recognition from the Association of Independent Music, Communication Arts Magazine, the Association of Independent Commercial Producers, The One Club, and the Themed Entertainment Association – and both Daly and White were recently invited on-stage to join Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live project manager Jeff Waye and Jimmy Lakotos of Geodezik at the 2012 NXNE Interactive Conference in Toronto to discuss mind-melting visuals and the future of stage design.

Next up, Amon Tobin’s ISAM Live 2.0 will soon launch for an Autumn run of dates across America, introducing the new ISAM construction enhanced with new audio and visual elements. The updated show will present new material from the forthcoming Two Fingers, as well as new visual content now being developed by Leviathan and Vello Virkhaus of V Squared Labs (VSL) specifically for ISAM’s “Journeyman” and “Wooden Toy” tracks. All past ISAM Live shows have sold out, so anyone interested in attending the new shows should visit www.amontobin.com to get tickets as soon as possible.

Killer reels: echolab and Kultnation


By now I’m sure you’re well aware of my deep respect for high-end visual and sound design. Among the inspirational friends I consider to be emerging masters in these complementary storytelling fields are sound designer Gavin Little of echolab and director Marco Vinicio, aka Kultnation. In the recent past, these gentlemen (heralding respectively from Dublin, Ireland, and Mexico City, Mexico) have collaborated often, and I hope you’ll agree that the results are quite spectacular. To experience their latest works, please visit www.vimeo.com/echolab and www.vimeo.com/kultnation. Read more
