Feltech are delighted to have been awarded JVC’s “Best Project” Award at IBC in Amsterdam for the University of Greenwich TV Studios and Post Production Facilities.
The award recognises projects selected by the European JVC team that offer outstanding innovation in a broadcast environment.
Valerie Brown, principle lecturer at the Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts, said “We feel this new environment will produce greater opportunities for students to work together across courses. The new studios with their ‘state of the art’ kit encourage peer assisted learning. The studios also emulate a real working environment allowing students to learn about workflows that mirror industry practices.”
Valerie continued, “The studios need to appeal to local film makers and other creative professionals. The university should be pivotal to the community and we believe our new facilities will further encourage and enable this.”
This collaborative ethos has always been present at the university but this is the first time all the creative areas have been brought together under one roof so that sharing knowledge, experience, practice and research even easier.
Professor Gregory Sporton, Head of the Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts explained, “This is exactly the right time for us to be encouraging collaborative projects involving staff, students and the community. Our new facilities will enable us as facilitators and mentors to challenge the students and push them to achieve their full potential.”
