HOBBIT Star Dean O'Gorman to attend B3

Frankfurt, (lifePR) - Watch out, Tolkien fans: Dean O'Gorman, one of New Zealand's most prominent actors will be coming to Frankfurt in October, 2015. First gaining attention in numerous fantasy series like Xena, Hercules, or The Almighty Johnson, the 38-year-old now plays the role of the dwarf Fili in the three-parts of "The Hobbit" in the Tolkien adaptation by director Peter Jackson. He was immediately named the "sexiest dwarf" by fans.

In his current project, the biopic "Trumbo," he embodies the old Hollywood star Kirk Douglas in younger year in a series with stars such as Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Helen Mirren and Diane Lane. Dalton Trumbo was a legendary American screenwriter who was on the "black list" of despised Communist artists during the McCarthy era.

In addition to his acting successes, Dean O'Gorman has earned a considerable reputation as a photographer. Most prominently, his portraits of war veterans from various eras re-staged with actors were met with critical praise. Through these works, he engaged with the topic of masculinity and vulnerability.

"Dean O'Gorman is at home in various genres as a painter, photographer and actor," said B3 Director Bernd Kracke. "We're excited to discover how this regular transcending of borders influences his creative work." O'Gorman will describe his artistic experiences from three worlds in the context of a B3 master class.

In keeping with its motto, "Expanded Senses: Experiencing with all senses and shifting boundaries," over 200 artists, filmmakers, designers, internet specialists, games developers and scholars from all over the world will discuss the future of storytelling in the digital age, from October 7-11, 2015. Through exhibitions, screenings, performances, masterclasses, and discussions, the B3 will be dedicated to new TV and film projects, illuminate technical as well as substantial innovations in the games world, and will transcend genre boundaries in the field of transmedial storytelling. Contributions from the realm of film, art, transmedia, and scholarship will augment the spectrum of topics. The debut in 2013 was an immediate success with around 25,000 visitors from twelve countries.

The organizer of the B3 Biennale of the Moving Image is the Hochschule für Gestaltung/University of Art and Design Offenbach (HfG). The B3 is supported by the Hessen State Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts (HMWK), die Hessian Authority for Commercial Broadcast and New Media (LPR Hessen) and the city of Frankfurt am Main.
