Biography

Jason Bevan was responsible for the creative development process at Warner Bros Studios, working on innovative campaigns for some of the biggest films in 21st century cinema from franchises such as Harry Potter and the DC universe to the Lego movies. He unlocks the secrets of the creative process behind blockbuster films and shares how to push the boundaries of innovation in any setting, even those that seem uninspiring. 

Before joining Warner Bros, Jason worked for Disney in London and Paris, where he designed and engineered innovative large-scale creative events and stunts. He continues to work with many of the top film studios and entertainment companies as co-founder of Content Creator Studios, creating visionary experiences for film premieres and cast and fan events. The company also specialises in publicity stunts that harness content for a variety of brands wishing to draw a wider audience.

He has worked directly with some of the world's most legendary filmmakers, storytellers, cast and film studios. From directors like Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, and Peter Jackson to actors Tom Cruise, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Dwayne Johnson, Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, and Clint Eastwood.

In speeches Jason shares the secrets of Hollywood’s creative power and how any industry can harness it. Using examples from much-loved films he looks at how to remove barriers to traditional ways of thinking and shows what 'outside of the box' really means in a world saturated with content. He believes that the post pandemic world is a massive opportunity for innovation and shares how creativity can flow, even in a hybrid workspace.

As well as delivering keynote speeches, Jason helps individuals and organisations find their inner creative through masterclasses and consulting services. He demonstrates that even the least creative-seeming job contains all the necessary elements to make something great. Jason sees creativity not as a nice-to-have, nor as a privilege only few get to exercise, but as a necessity that calls to us all more than ever. 

Jason was an expert speaker for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, has been on the judging panel for highly regarded awards in the creative industry and conducts talks and masterclasses for global brands, companies, governments, NGOs and renown trade and industry events/organisations worldwide.
