ABOUT THE IMZ ACADEMY

The IMZ Academy is an initiative started in 2013 that brings together professionals in the field of cultural film production, fostering intensive experience exchange, hands-on knowledge transfer and development of industry-specific skills.


IMZ ACADEMY 2015 - COURSE OUTLINE

The IMZ Academy 2015 will focus on opera in the digital age, looking in particular at the challenge of online and social media. The masterclass aims:

  • To outline the range of editorial and technical knowledge which an opera house requires to promote and position itself in the digital world
  • To help opera houses develop their narrative as creative organisations
  • To help them decide who their audience is and how to reach them
  • To help define and develop their digital strategy and its active components
  • To provide a framework for decisions about whether or not to invest in in-house technology and staff to pursue their digital strategy
  • To examine best practice in multi-camera performance capture and streaming, including low-cost options
  • To develop thinking around a range of editorial content beyond performance

The course will be led by IMZ Academy director Peter Maniura (Head of Digital Development for BBC Arts), with guest speakers like David Chalmers (Principal Technologist, BBC Scotland) and Kriss Russman (EMMY-nominated, multi-camera Director and Filmmaker) giving the inside track and practical guidance on the latest developments and technologies in the field.

Participants from every part of the digital, artistic, technical or organizational department of an opera house, theatre but as well from any part working closely with opera houses (e.g. legal departments, international networks and organizations) are welcome to join the IMZ Academy 2015.
