Technology has always been a motor for the art of filmmaking. It has given a voice to silent films, color to the classics and visual effects to blockbusters.
What are the possibilities today if creative technical minds experiment at a film school?
The constantly growing field of audio-visual media is in need of novel artistic expressions!

But also modern movie productions require novel software and digital work flows. Massive amounts of data need to be handled and setups optimized. To develop and shape these new media forms and pipelines, disciplines must work together and an interdisciplinary thinking is needed!
