DECLAN DOWLING

Director Designer Producer

I direct design and produce an array of content for international games and software publishers

Adverts

An advert I directed for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's new Science Dimensions program.
I drafted the following storyboards before flying over to direct the shoot.

An IGTV advert for a graphic novel that we shot on a probe lens in order to emphasise its striking detail and crisp print quality. We then interviewed some of its writers in a custom built set using coloured rim lights to compliment the book's vibrant artwork.

Promos

I produced and directed this promo which teased behind the scenes development of Baldur's Gate 3 It was filmed in several country's and graded to match the games gold/silver color pallet.

Games

A 52 Level AR Math game that I directed for students age 6-12. Focus testing showed us that they held tablets at different heights. This informed our level design which I had SME's build using lego before I sketched the final designs.

Trailers

A first look trailer I directed for Baldur's Gate 3. It combines in game cinematics with Caravaggio inspired set pieces. The emotional pace is driven by outstanding voice over and live orchestral recordings.
