IMZ Academy 2016: Dance in the digital world at International Television Festival Golden Prague 29-30 September 2016 / Prague, Czech Republic

The new edition of the IMZ Academy focuses on dance, covering all aspects of the visualisation of the art form:

Our experts from the dance, film and media scene will give you an insight track on how to best visualise the story of your dance production and how to effectively reach your audience.

This year’s edition also discusses performance capture whether for television, cinema or online, as well as the latest technologies in capture, editing and editorial curation.

The Academy sessions will also examine best practice in multi-camera performance capture, streaming and low-cost options.

Talks and discussions will look at artistic, as well as technical and financial challenges. The interactive part is an important component of the IMZ Academy approach. Experts will be working hands on with all participants.

During workshop sessions you will team up in small groups to develop original ideas from real life examples and brand new future projects. The active exchange and knowledge sharing improves skills and competences and helps to professionalise.

The sessions will be led by IMZ Academy director Peter Maniura (Head of Digital Development, BBC Arts) with experts and guest speakers Tony Followell (Head of Royal Opera House Media) and award winning dance film director and producer Barbara Willis Sweete (CEO of Willis Sweete Productions), revealing their exclusive know-how on all the latest developments and technologies in the field including new digital platforms.
