Swan Lake: Moving Image & Music Awards
Swan Lake: Moving Image and Music Awards (SL:MIMA) is an education project which originated from the need to join the efforts of multimedia teachers in Europe and open minds to new ways of multimedia expression. The project builds upon the cooperation of young musicians, students, video makers, story tellers, technologists and partners from the industry. SL:MIMA aims to be a truly international event bringing together students from different European countries.
The focal point of the programme is the students’ competition, the creation of stimulating visual imagery set to the new age piano music. A series of workshops accompanies the programme and is aimed at familiarising students with the whole range of digital art technologies – from visualisation and rendering techniques, to digital aesthetics, dramaturgy, interactivity in virtual environments and experiments from the ambient multi-medial area. The award itself aims to focus on discovery and promotion of young talent from university environments across Europe. The main goal of this scheme is to realise the idea of networking. The programme also forges links with the industry.
