Description

The Man who would be Kingsley - The Story of Rebellion

From two brothers sharing ideas at university to create a video game to building global gaming franchises and now creating a new fully-fledged film studio based in Didcot, the story of Rebellion is both fascinating and inspiring.

Oxfordshire Technology & Media are delighted to welcome Jason Kingsley, CEO and co-founder of Rebellion.

In conversation with Lucinda Whiteley, Creative Director of Novel Entertainment, who will explore the history, Jason’s perspective on the entertainment industry, their investment in the studio and the UK’s position in the creative industries. Plus of course a little Modern History!

We look forward to seeing you there.
