For immediate release
Minister Welcomes Telos Productions to Atlantic Technology Centre
Development and Technology
“When we constructed the ATC, we were confident that it would help attract new opportunities to our province, and the addition of Telos is real complement to the growing animation and gaming cluster of companies in this state of the art facility,” said Minister Currie.
Telos is currently developing The Solution, a video game set in a distant future where the force of paranoia and a fear of economic ruin translates into a dangerously controlling, manipulative political movement. The project is in the development stage and will allow the completion of the game story and structure, market research, animated game demos and character creation. The company currently employs five people.
Sean Yeomans, CEO of Telos, said he is very excited about the growth and opportunity for his company in the ATC.
“I am proud of the fact that we have been able to crew this production with 100% local talent. I am impressed with the overall collegiality of the industry. There is something grass roots about the way people work together here and find it very refreshing.”
Minister Currie said the growing opportunities at the Atlantic Technology Centre are exciting for the youth of Prince Edward Island.
“When you visit the ATC, you quickly notice the large number of young Islanders that are working because the opportunities in exciting fields like animation and graphic design are now available here in Prince Edward Island,” the Minister said. “Telos is a great fit for our province, for the Atlantic Technology Centre, and we wish them success in the future.”
The Atlantic Technology Centre is home to 25 companies and over 325 full-time employees.
