dLux media arts: calling for FutureScreen Mobile master class applications

dLux media arts is now calling for applications for its FutureScreen Mobile master classes. If you are a video artist, filmmaker or animator, check out the 3-day "MovingMovies" master class conducted by the-phone-book Limited (UK). For new media artists, designers and other creative researchers, dLux media arts presents the 3-day master class "Aware, shared mobile experience(s)" conducted by Aware (Finland).

There are only 10 places available per master class!

Participants will be selected based on applications received. Please fill out the online application form in the events section of the dlux website below. Applications close 12 December!

Applicants will be notified of the selection results by 17 December. The participation fee is: $100 +10% GST ($80 + 10% GST for current dLux media arts members). This fee is payable upon selection.


Master class: Aware, shared mobile experience(s)
Dates: January 13,14,15 2004
Venue: Metroscreen, Sydney Film Centre, Paddington
Presenters: Andrew Paterson and John Evans (Aware)

This 3-day master-class is aimed at new media artists, designers and other creative researchers, interested in gaining skills, hands-on practical experience, and shared knowledge in collective contribution, publication and syndication of mobile media for socially-engaged media art practices.

The Aware platform is a design tool and a production environment. It allows for collective publication and syndication of mobile media. The focus is upon relations between objective and subjective contextual information, such as proximity, location, temporality, theme and event. Important strategies are: working from the lowest common technological denominator to maintain flexibility and inclusiveness; open-source solutions within propriety networks; human relationships and experience; context and situatedness.

Master class: MovingMovies
Dates: 27-28-29 January 2005
Venue: Metroscreen, Sydney Film Centre, Paddington
Presenters: Fee Plumley and Ben Jones (the-phone-book Limited)

This 3-day master class is aimed at established filmmakers, video artists and animators, interested in extending their practice to mobile platforms. The master class will provide an in-depth introduction into the technical and artistic challenges, restrictions and opportunities involved in producing video content for the small and mobile screen.

Through testing and experimentation over the three days of the master class, participants will create - and take away - a white paper outlining the pros and cons, limitations and opportunities of mobile video content, covering best practice and multiple encoding techniques. By adapting existing work and/or creating new work, participants will be producing final art pieces by the end of the master class. The intention of this process is to demonstrate good and bad practice. The goal is not to produce a perfect piece of work, but to learn how to make high quality work in and for the future.
