Film design, animation/VFX, sound design, online and print design, as well as interactive media formats comprise the main topics covered in the interdisciplinary degree program “media design production film animation grafic interaction” (mgp), which has been offered at the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences since 2009. The course covers the entire spectrum of static and time-based media: from hand-drawn sketches, nude drawing, and painting, to feature and animation films and virtual reality events. The lectures provide a scientific framework for media and cultural history, communication science, media economy, media ethics, and aesthetics. The university’s own studios ensure hands-on training for mgp students. The video studio (150 m2) provides professional equipment (Arri Alexa) for shooting and editing films. A recording studio equipped with sound control is available for creating film music and sound designs. Professional-qualited animated films may be created either manually in the stop-motion studio or the cartoon studio, or digitally in the studio for computer animation. Equipment für 360° films and virtual reality productions broaden the spectrum. In the interactive media studio, experimental forms of media art may be explored and installations and performances presented.
