Jörg Tittel (Writer/Director)
Jörg was born in Belgium, son of composer Joanna Bruzdowicz and Jürgen Tittel. In 1998, Jörg moved to New York City, where he graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the Stella Adler Conservatory. To finance his studies, he worked for a variety of videogame 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 movie.
Jörg's work spans across film, theatre, games, graphic novels and beyond. He wrote and starred alongside Richard E. Grant in the acclaimed play 2+2+2 which Time Out called “fiercely original… a beautifully crafted kick at self censorship and a song to the irrepressibly individual human spirit. A rare, ebullient treat.” He also wrote and produced Alex Helfrecht’s debut short film, Battle for Britain.
Jörg wrote graphic novel Ricky Rouse Has a Gun, an action comedy set in China. Named one of Boston Globe’s Best Books of 2014, it is being developed for the big screen.
Jorg co-wrote and co-directed his debut feature The White King which will premiere at EIFF in June 2016, and is nominated for the Michael Powell award as well as Best Performance in a British feature film.
