The wondrous AFTRS (the Australian Film, Television and Radio School in Canberra — amazing place!) are looking for professional teams with groundbreaking new media ideas to attend their leading R&D production lab.
Facilitated by AFTRS, the Laboratory for Advanced Media Production (LAMP) has run hundreds of workshops, seminars and live-in-residentials and developed over 54 projects.
LAMP assists production teams in developing innovative emerging media projects including Sharing Web 2.0 Services, Advanced TV, 360 Entertainment, Serious Games and Social Virtual Worlds.
Over their six day LAMP residential, you and internationally recognised industry mentors live and work together in a creative hothouse environment for five days straight.
What a privilege! We were challenged to reach for and achieve
far reaching goals but were also totally supported in the endeavour by a united team of razor sharp professionals.
The team at LAMP tell me you will experience engaging presentations from world class practitioners, evolve the business, technical and creative aspects of your project, and create a dynamic visual proof of concept.
This was a highly productive, intensive session whereby all outside distractions were eliminated letting us focus solely on the job
At the end of the residential you are given the opportunity to present your visual proof of concept to a panel of media industry experts, gaining invaluable feedback, insight and advice.
Past panels have included representatives from the ABC, Bigpond, NineMSN, yahoo7, SBS, the AFC, Film Victoria, NSWFTO PFTC, Alcatel, Southern Star and Nickelodeon.
I was transformed and uplifted with new confidence, a new sense of possibility
LAMP’s residentials work because participants get to accelerate their ideas rapidly from concept development through to proof of concept while being challenged by a wide range of ideas relevant to the growing ‘creative industries’ sector.
The next LAMP Residential is being held in collaboration with the New Zealand Screen Council and is set to take place in late February, 2008 in Victoria.
This has definitely been one of the best experiences of my life.
So get to work today on your application and getting a team together, so you don’t miss out being a part of the first LAMP residential for 2008. Applications are open now and close on January 10, 2008.
Don’t Just Sit Around this Christmas Holidays –
the next LAMP residential is just around the corner!
Blimey – I’m putting in an application myself!
