David Freeman not only operates in the worlds of both games and film, but is a leading teacher in both media.
As this book is being written, David, along with his game design and writing consultancy The Freeman Group, is currently working as either a designer/writer or writer on three games for Vivendi Universal Games, three games for Activision, two games for Atari, two games for 3D Realms, and games for Electronic Arts, Ubi Soft, and others. Only a few of these games have been announced and thus can be named. They are Command and Conquer 3 (working title) for Electronic Arts, Van Helsing for Vivendi Universal Games, both Duke Nuken Forever and Prey for 3D Realms, Terminator: Redemption for Atari (the working title for their game that goes to and then beyond Judgment Day), dialogue for Mission Impossible: Operation Surma for Atari, and work on both Shark Slayer and Pitfall for Activision. David also contributed to the script for Atari's and Shiny Entertainment's Enter the Matrix. He has worked in the past on game projects for Microsoft and Midway Games. No doubt, by the time you're reading this, this list will be long out of date. For David's current activities, please see: www.freemangames.com
