FILM3147 Entertainment 3.0: Creative Industries and Technology (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This interdisciplinary course aims to train young professionals to the opportunities in this sector at the crossover between finance, technology, and media, which has already been the catalyst for significant job creation in the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs). The course will give a basic understanding of blockchain technology, its opportunities, its limitations and how it can be applied to the creation and the economy of the creative industries such as film, animation, music, design and videogames from development to circulation. The course will integrate theoretical and practical approaches, and culminate with the production of a creative project on a blockchain platform.
Finally, several expert guest speakers from the blockchain and CCIs will be invited throughout the semester, to testify and share their vision of these industries.
The main aims of this course are:
(1) To give students the ability to analyse and explain in an informed and critical manner the challenges born from the digital transition that impacts the CCIs and revolutionises consumption, production habits, and its core economic model.
(2) To develop future professionals in the CCIs with a foundational knowledge in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, as well as tools and methodologies to plan content economics ahead of production whether they distribute it traditionally or independently.
(3) Allow students to decrypt, analyse, and adapt to the rapid changes in the creative ecosystems. This objective relies on the development of skills such as conceptualisation, writing, and production of content with specialised knowledge of economic, financial, legal, and marketing dimensions.
