Maria Bürger completed her Bachelor's degree in Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences Berlin with this work.
She first came into contact with virtual reality via a research project on immersive technology for theater and has always been fascinated by emotional stances triggered by the consequences of technological progress.
Friedrich Schadow works as a research assistant in the department of Game Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin.
Over the years, he has accrued a wealth of experience in interaction design. He regularly implements virtual reality experiences of various kinds and developed the entire code structure of "paradigm shift".
Jill Weller voiced the female version of the assistant.
She studied acting at the Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre, Los Angeles. During this collaboration, she drew on both her film and theater experiences to bring to life a very friendly, helpful, yet also ambivalent character.
Thorsten Kavur created the male version of the assistant.
He previously voiced the character of Bertrand Carpel in the video game Spellforce 3. In the development of paradigm shift, he incorporated his large knowledge of sci-fi and created an inspired and equally individual character.
