APPLY NOW TO EVOLVE YOUR MEDIA
OCTOBER 06 – THE 5th LIVE-IN-LAMP – TASMANIA
Discover emerging media opportunities and create compelling next generation media at the next Laboratory for Advanced Media Production residential, proudly supported by Screen Tasmania through the Department of Economic Development.
LAMP is designed to future-proof projects by guiding creative teams through the opportunities offered by broadband and IP television, web 2.0 social networks, mobile media, games, virtual worlds and non-linear storytelling. In the last 10 months LAMP has run four major labs developing over 30 projects in a process which has transformed the creative mindset of 92 people. AFTRS LAMP has worked with high level creative teams from ABC TV, News Interactive, Firelight, Bush TV, Movie One and a host of independents to workshop and prototype cutting edge services.
LAMP is now calling for creative teams from all parts of the Australian media industries to submit cross-media projects to its 5th lab to be held at beautiful Freycinet Lodge, Tasmania between Oct 29 – Nov 3, 2006. Participants will be led by Australian and international mentors with specialist skills in design, writing, business, user experience and technical aspects of cross media production. They will also use the latest software, develop an interest grabbing pitch and work with some of Australia’s leading cross media developers. LAMP is truly practical, production and market focused.
When my internet is future-proofed, will I be able to monetize the web 2.0-ishness of my online “weblog”, or “blog”, and swing from moneytree-to-moneytree by way of a newly actualized long tail? I would like to discover how to best imbue my ill-defined intervideo uberweb idea with the hip aura of social-mesh-enabling “myspace”.
LOL, I think you’re already there mate…just need to speak to ROI about your cunning plan and breed sharks with lasers.
Anyone (in Australia) can apply — go for it! Though I think you’d make a great mentor Leslie! 🙂
Oh and re “myspace”, don’t you know it’s Yahoo!7 360 now? You’re so 28th August, 2006.
Breeding sharks with (fricken) lasers would require me to be some kind of super-villain mentor, which wouldn’t be so bad except that I don’t own a cape or a volcano. I’m pretty handy with Keynote though.
LOL. That is what we need — more mentors with capes and volcanoes. How cool would that be?…if your team isn’t learning quick enough or enjoying themselves you push the button that sends them down to the crocs.
