AN IMMERSIVE TRANSMEDIA WORKSHOP June 22nd - July 6th, 2013 | Lake Como, Italy Description Transmedia, a multifaceted experimental approach to read and communicate the beauty of a territory. Using new media tools, the workshop “Italian Close-Up” crafts an innovative interface to tell stories on the Lake Como, its richness in architecture, fashion and landscape.
The contemporary digital era heavily relies on transmedia: filmmaking, data visualization and interactive media design, to internationally communicate local contents and information. Communication skills today develop from a strong sensibility to details close-up. No place more than Italy can teach us about details and elegance in fashion, art, architecture, landscape and food culture.
This workshop is designed to expand participants’ creativity and skills in production of videos and interactive contents through new media making, while widening their knowledge and understanding of the current scene within this innovative and multidisciplinary field. This intensive program is a unique opportunity to produce a short film and interactive digital contents for architecture, fashion, landscape and design. The workshop teaches conceptual background, production methods and design skills.
Organized in Como, Italy, students of the two-week workshop will discover this city renowned for its lake, villas, food, silk manufacturing, rolling mountain vistas and serene beauty embedded in centuries of architectural marvel and masterpieces by modernist architect Giuseppe Terragni.
