Jörg Tittel (Writer/Director)
Born and raised in Belgium among action heroes like Jean-Claude van Damme and Tin-tin, Jörg later studied at New York University Tisch School of the Arts.
He wrote for a variety of leading international video game magazines before moving to Los Angeles to work as a game designer and writer, starting with Activision’s MINORITY
REPORT based on Steven Spielberg’s film.
Jörg's work spans across film, theatre, games, graphic novels and beyond.
His feature film directing debut, dark sci-fi drama THE WHITE KING starring Jonathan Pryce, Agyness Deyn, Greta Scacchi and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, amongst others, was released in 2017 in multiple territories and nominated for multiple awards at leading festivals.
Jörg wrote graphic novel RICKY ROUSE HAS A GUN an action comedy set in China.
Named one of Boston Globe’s Book of the Year in 2014, it is being developed for the big screen.
Jörg produced the 2013 stage adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s FIESTA (THE SUN ALSO RISES) which was a breakout West End hit at Trafalgar Studios.
His short film BATTLE FOR BRITAIN starring Julian Glover was selected by some of
the world’s top festivals (and is available on iTunes worldwide). Little White Lies called it “…superb, illuminating, poignant… the kind of short film that leaves a lasting impression.”
His satirical play 2+2+2 starring Richard E. Grant took him to London in 2007 and was a critical success. Time Out called it a “a crackling firebrand of a new play... fiercely original...beautifully crafted...a song to the irrepressibly individual human spirit. A rare ebullient treat”. Rupert Murdoch’s Times, however, thought it was “Extreme, even for an angry cartoon.” That turned out to be the best backhanded compliment he’s ever received.
