AFTRS LAMP: I’m taking a week off (end of Feb) and mentoring a workshop (with the likes of Gary Hayes who developed Big Pond and ABC islands in Second Life and Jennifer Wilson, ex head of innovation for NineMSN) for The Australian Film, Television and Radio school LAMP project. LAMP workshops seems to be a lab where we work for a week with Television, radio, games developers, virtual worlds, social networks and whatnot…
Have you got what it takes to apply?
We are looking for six to eight professional teams with groundbreaking new media ideas to attend our leading R&D production lab from Feb 24 -29, 2008.
Facilitated by the 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.
I saw the team list for this session (apply for the next one if you want) and there are some awesome companies/projects involved. The future of media in Australia might very well be created on this week, in Melbourne.
Anyway, don’t whinge at me if you don’t hear from me during the week starting 24 February. I probably won’t blog and I might not be able to Twitter or email much either.
