Director and producer Takuya Shibata began his career in Japan doing production work on independent films before moving on to work as an assistant director for various television projects. In 1998, alongside Kenya Sawada, he co-produced the Japanese-Hong Kong production Extreme Crisis/Project B.
Upon his return to Japan he produced various commercials and opening title sequences for MTV Japan, often working with a minimal budget that forced him to be creative and produce high production value presentations within tight restraints. He later went on to work for Sony Computer Entertainment on the animated project Arc the Lad. In addition to co-writing the scenario, he also produced the music and sound.
Together with Reuben Langdon, Takuya co-founded Just Cause Productions in early 2002. The company was incorporated in 2005 and has contributed to various video game projects.
