Jason Behrman brings a wealth of creativity and experience to the Dean River team.
REVEL ENTERTAINMENT was formed in 2000 by partners Jason Behrman, Emily Barclay, and Mellany Behrman. Established as an entertainment production company, Revel develops and produces multi-media properties including commercials, interactive media, electronic press, television series, documentaries, and feature films.
Partners Jason Behrman and Mellany Behrman met while studying filmmaking at the University of Oklahoma. Upon graduating, they each began working in the entertainment industry in various capacities, eventually working on such features as: Twister, Mortal Kombat II, Dr. Dolittle, Can’t Hardly Wait, 28 Days, and Charlie’s Angels.
The three met in Hollywood and began working together as writing partners. The collaboration between the partners culminated while producing and directing an original interactive series “My Life Sucks” for POP.com, Dreamworks/Imagine’s high profile but un-launched internet company. At this time they decided to set up their own full-service production company, which provides all-inclusive high production value product in a cost effective manner.
Revel produced interactive and new media projects for such web companies as Den.net and Hollywood Stock Exchange (HSX.com), working on projects such as Redemption High and Project Greenlight’s launch. Revel also created two original web series, Rubberneckin’ and Hostel America.
Revel’s initial foray into the theatrical independent production realm led them to the collaboration on the independent films Road to Redemption and The Climb, which were released theatrically and on video nationwide with an additional television airing on CBS.
Additionally, Revel has produced several documentary projects, such as Mountain of Fire, a historical doc about the search for Mt. Sinai, and a series of national ad spots for Care-net, a women’s crises pregnancy organization.
Throughout the first half of 2002 Revel produced the re-branding package for the music channel VH1. This deliverable included an extensive evergreen “tool kit” from which VH1 creates most of its interstitial programming promotional spots. Revel also produced promo spots for Late World with Zach, the “Car Guy” campaign, and created Storytellers, a package of personal vignettes about Rock & Roll. The entire campaign was recognized as a breakout package in the “State of Design” forum at the 2002 Promax BDA conference.
Over winter 2002 and spring 2003, Revel developed and produced the re-branding campaign for the ABC Family Channel. Labeled “XYZ Minute,” the package of 64 – sixty-second interstitial spots consists of male/female opposing ideas called “Your Point Is?” and “Spycam” which is a series of four girls hanging out at a gym café, four guys playing poker and then a night of the two groups getting together. These promos continue to air today.
Jason stays on the forefront of the fields of technology and animation.
