StudAVP - project description

This project is primarily aimed towards students of Audio/Video art and media studies and their need to participate in professional production and also to present their work to the public.

Project is designed in a way to improve their educational process and to connect them to professional media environment, mainly television and radio. By creating specific synergy between media corporates and educational institutions we plan to establish new ways of communication and possibilities for students and alumni, to learn and gain more practical experience and to present themselves to media corporates as potential future employers. Project is consistent with the Europe 2020 strategy, the Strategic Framework for European Cooperation in Education and Training and the Bologna process.

During first year of project implementation students from partner country (PC) art and media schools will produce audio/video works based on conditions of announced Open Call. Student production teams will be created from two different PC institutions working in cooperation on one project. Student mobility will be planed according accepted projects. It is planned to produce up to 15 student works and to have 150 students involved.

From the very beginning of the project we will start working on development of broadband Internet portal - unique central point to all students from our schools. Internet portal will be capable of distributing high definition audio video content among other relevant information, links, databases and etc.

In the second year of the project, our non-academic media partners will define specific topics for the second Open Call for projects, according to their program needs. Media partners will be asked to include students in ‘real’ production. Students will be demanded to act, create and behave like radio and TV professionals. They will learn through practice gaining valuable experience. Student mobility will be planed according accepted projects. It is planned to produce up to 15 student works and to have 150 students involved.

Further development of the Internet portal Stud AVP is planed and new features will be introduced, like On-line mentorship programme - an innovative, democratic way for students to choose and decide upon mentors of their works.

Finished student works will be broadcasted over public radio television stations and through the Internet portal. DVD’s will be produced and applications for various festivals will be submitted.

The third year’s main objective is to fully establish and develop a long lasting platform for cooperation between students and media enterprises in the region and to develop independent student Internet radio and television broadcasting! It is expected to support 20 student works and to have 300 students involved.

Also, our attention will be focused on a new form of education - creating “virtual university” for audio video art and media! Having that in mind, the third Open Call for student projects will be free of any conditions. Students from Europe related schools are welcome to join and present own works. Student works will be broadcasted and published mainly but not exclusively on Internet student radio and television.

It is expected to have at least 400 students involved and 60 AV works produced during three years of implementation of the StudAVP project.
