Seth brings over 14 years of successful experience producing acclaimed commercial productions for agencies including The Escape Pod, OKRP, Leo Burnett, Ogilvy & Mather, Match Marketing Group, JWT, and McCann for brands such as Samsung, Cadillac, EGO POWER+, GoGo squeeZ, Groupon, KIND Snacks, McDonald’s, and the Chicago Blackhawks. 

Explore Media has that perfect combination of talent, culture, and vision you need in a company to consistently achieve great things. I’m incredibly proud to work alongside a team of this caliber, with impressive cross-disciplinary talents and a collaborative spirit.
— Seth Deahl, Executive Producer

Seth is leaving his role as a Producer in the freelance world, where he was a highly sought-after commodity, to join Explore Media’s growing ranks. He got his start in production on the technical side at Big Deahl Productions, quickly working his way into the production side for over 95 national commercials. After leaving Big Deahl in 2009 to set out on his own production path, Seth steadily made a name for himself in the commercial production world while learning from many of Chicago’s best-known producers, eventually becoming a successful freelance Producer in his own right.

We’ve worked with Seth on multiple productions and he has proven to be not only extremely capable and well-respected by agency and production colleagues alike, but also as a visionary leader who will coordinate our productions and directors from our Chicago headquarters. Clients count on Seth’s professionalism and impressive body of work, and we look forward to being able to bring their creative ideas to life.
— Jeremy Pinckert, Founder

Seth has already begun his new role as Executive Producer and is busy working with sales representatives, creatives and directors on new projects, as well as spearheading the company’s move to the River North area.
