The way we record, screen and view moving image work is changing. This demands and offers the possibility of new ways of making moving image work. In this studio you get the chance to explore these exciting possibilities.
The aim of this studio is to explore the relationships between the ways in which moving image work is recorded and presented; and to give you the opportunity to make a major piece of work that pushes these boundaries.
Since the invention of cinema, moving image work has predominantly been presented on rectangular cinema or television screens to a seated audience. Film and animation has been designed to meet these expectations. New platforms for presenting and viewing work have emerged, and will continue to emerge.
The recording, screening and viewing practices of moving image work are beginning to change. Film and animation work can now be projected onto buildings, screened on smart phones, screened on the walls of underground tunnels, in cars or onto the spray from waterfalls. The way we record, screen and view moving image work is changing.
The new ways of presenting work demand and offer the possibility of new ways of making work. In this studio you get the chance to explore these exciting possibilities. You will develop and make a piece of work that pushes these boundaries. This major piece of work will also showcase your interests and your skills and position you as a key player in the future of media practice.
