ESSEMBLE is a strategic partnership project in the area of Film and Media Arts education focusing on the development of creative and technical skills in digital film and animation production.
Essemble addresses the need of European Film and Media Schools for training and mobility activities focusing on media and film related technologies that push the traditional barriers of the medium and call for new pedagogical and didactic approaches. In particular, the project involves the delivery of a set of intensive training activities dealing with the acquisition of skills and competences in new film technologies, such as stereoscopic imaging, augmented reality and visual effects, and their application in the context of the creative production of new film formats that cross live action, animation and virtual moving images. Complementary, the project also involves the development of new learning methods and didactic materials focusing on new film production technologies; the reinforcement of digital skills amongst arts students and teachers, and the implementation of a new interdisciplinary program. Together, these activities should address the clear need for much more stronger and interdisciplinary training on the creative use of new technological tools for film, animation and media related content creation and production.
