Media Molecule headlining Develop Conference

UK-based Media Molecule, creator of the LittleBigPlanet franchise, will be headlining the Develop Conference in Brighton running from the 19th through 21st later this month.

Former president of Sony Studios Worldwide Phil Harrison will be leading the interview with founding directors Alex Evans, Mark Healey and Kareem Ettouney for the conference’s opening keynote. A rather interesting factoid about this man is that he was the one who greenlit LittlBigPlanet a few years back, allowing it to become the success it is today.

“We’re delighted that Media Molecule is opening the conference this year,” expressed managing director of Tandem Events, Andy Lane. “They are the pioneers of user-generated content and remain one of the most creative studios around. It will be fascinating to hear their stories from the trenches – and who better to help them relive their tales than the man who helped them on their way: Phil Harrison.”
