What? The subject area Interactive Media trains its students in the conceptualization, production and the artistic design of interactive applications such as games, apps or media installations. In this context, Transmedia/Games Producers supervise the production across all media platforms: they direct their teams, manage the budgets and hold the reins during all stages of the project’s realization.
Why? Interactive Media students at the Institute of Animation learn to work across media platforms in interdisciplinary teams. During their studies, they create prizewinning games, apps, media installations and interfaces. Alumni often start‐up their own successful companies, for instance in the field of games or media consulting and –design. Since students are mentored by experts from the industry, thus already creating an invaluable network, graduates prove themselves in internationally renowned companies just as well. Future Transmedia/Games Producers are often sent to festivals and expositions to represent their project, thus getting to know the international media landscape especially well. As a plus, no tuition fees are being charged.
