We are celebrating – Happy Birthday 🎂 & Happy Holidays 🎄!

This December the Interactive Filmmaking Lab became 1 year old and what a year that was!

We have welcomed five new members with our expertise now expanded to include 360o, Virtual Reality (VR) and HTML-based interactive filmmaking, Motion Capture, Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), Expanded and Live Cinema, and Neurocinematics.

Our research was published in Leonardo and in Frontiers in Neuroscience; was featured in The Conversation and The Guardian technology podcast; and was presented at the Mixed Reality Laboratory of the University of Nottingham as well as art exhibitions/events.

Last but not least, we are already preparing two new interactive productions, to be released in your screens and headsets in 2019!

Stay tuned and may you all have a Wonderful Festive Period and a Bright New Year!

About the Interactive Filmmaking Lab

The Interactive Filmmaking Lab at the School of Computing and Digital Technologies of the Staffordshire University, led by Dr Polina Zioga, has been established to facilitate cutting edge interdisciplinary research and research supervision in the niche area of interactive filmmaking and related media, combining creativity and cognitive sciences, with the use of innovative interactive technologies.

This involves applied and creative projects in collaboration with industrial partners; exploratory and basic research, i.e. neurocinematics; as well as exploration of new theoretical underpinnings that are currently shaping the discourse of the field.

Our research expertise and strengths lie in the use of innovative technologies, such as Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), Expanded and Live Cinema practices and scientific methodologies, such as Neurocinematics.
