AFTRS Media Lab
Tagline: “A collaborative media space where AFTRS interacts with the creative community”
LAMP Lab: July 2006
Target platforms: Online community; broadband PC; mobile
Project description: AFTRS Media Lab is where the walls of the school disappear. An online resource and collaborative space, it invites you to move from passive consumption to active production and participation.
- As a repository of more than 30 years of the school’s productions, it is a valuable and fascinating source of the early works of many leading film, tv, radio and digital media makers, as well as the work of recent graduates. Users are invited to rate, tag and review.
- It is a window into the school: somewhere to keep up with what is happening right now, through blogs and podcasts, calendars and forums – and to comment and send feedback
- It is an educational resource: latest opinions, techniques and technology. Teaching activities of the school – seminars, interviews, exercises – are captured and uploaded.
- It is a place to show your work and receive feedback; get involved in media projects and meet like-minded people – where individuals, both within and outside the school, use online tools to share ideas and collaborate on projects
- It is where the school meets its audience and the audience becomes part of the school: online media projects, such as a serialised interactive drama that uses collaborative scripts and school production facilities; and rating and reviewing of student and community productions and scripts.
