Program Description:

Within a studio ethos, strcutured around common projects run in interdisciplinary teams, the course encourages the pursuit of practice and theory in a context designed to exploit the creative tensions between them.

We recruit from a diverse constituency of practitioners and researchers, filmmakers, designers, editors, writers, critics and directors. This gives the course a multi-disciplinary context and encourages a collaborative working environment.

The course provides opportunities to work in the development of media applications at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol. Tje Studio brings together researhers and commerical producers in the filed of wireless applications including groundbreaking work on social gaming and Alternate Reality Games. Students in their second semester (full time) are taught at the Studio, working alongside production teams.
