John Dower is currently developing 2 feature films with his own Anglo-Norwegian Production company Jellyfish productions, the first based on the play “Inside”, that tackles the theme of fathers who are serving time in prison and the second "Behemoth" set in East Tennesee which charts the fear of impending manhood in 15 year old Oscar.
He has recently finished a lengthy contract at Lionhead Studios on the interactive story "Milo & Kate" using Microsoft's new 'Kinect' technology for the xbox platform. Here, he used his experience as a drama director to direct motion capture, animation and voice as well as collaborating in character design, story structure and game design.
Previous to this, John has worked as a freelance director, directing 5 short films, many hours of Television series drama including "Eastenders", "Casualty" & "Grange Hill" for the BBC, "The Bill" for ITV and "Make My Day" for Channel 4. He also directed all 8 episodes of the drama elements of the interactive web-based astrological thriller "Signs of Life" with Endemol for the BBC switch website.John is now determined to take his multi-platform/new media experience on to new pastures, believing increased convergence to be inevitable, and promising exciting challenges ahead.
Pascal Langlois (Equity name: Pascal Langdale) worked over a period of 18 months providing every aspect of performance in the role of Ethan Mars in Quantic Dreams’ award winning “Heavy Rain”. In a game that was so heavily dependent on creating a fully believable and engaging performance, Pascal confronted challenges and faced problems that no actor had faced before, adapting his approach to suit the new media. It is this experience, together with years of experience as an acting teacher, familiar with a wide range of techniques, that makes for a unique understanding of the issues any actor will face in the studio.
Pascal has collected many acting credits over the past 15 years, in Film, TV and Theatre. As a result of his unique experience, Pascal has developed a revolutionary approach to the collection and categorisation of behaviour for per project library creation; the LT Behaviour Library. In 2009 he founded Motives in Movement, dedicated to ensuring excellence in the convergence of traditional and new medias.
Jörg Tittel Games Designer, Writer, and Director, studied theatre at New York University Tisch School of the Arts and the Stella Adler Conservatory. To finance his degree he wrote for game magazines such as now defunct Edge sister magazine Next Gen, the Official Dreamcast Magazine (USA), MANIAC (Germany) and Famitsu DC (Japan). Somehow those two worlds went really well together. On a mission to combine them even more, he worked as a writer and game designer at Treyarch/Activision, where he helped adapt MINORITY REPORT into an Xbox/PS2 videogame. He also somehow ended up with an associate producer credit on Uwe Boll’s ALONE IN THE DARK movie. Clearly, Jörg has some explaining to do…
Jörg’s critically acclaimed play, 2+2+2, largely inspired by videogames, was performed in 2007 at London’s King’s Head Theatre and featured Richard E. Grant. Jörg specialises in cross-platform projects and is a frequent panelist and speaker at game and multiplatform trade events, including Develop 2009, Sheffield Doc Fest, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts and the London Book Fair, GDC Cologne 2010, to name but a few. As a Director and Writer, Jorg is represented by United Agents London.
