Dear Esteemed guest, Dears, Fellows, Ladies and Gentlemen:
The advance of the technology has created new opportunities for creativity in filmmaking, digital media and transmedia around the world. A culture of new creative approaches to drive the next generation of people to embrace new business models.
Digital technology, rapid growth in high-quality low-cost digital video production and editing software, the rise of online content aggregators among other factors, are lowering barriers for storytelling across multiple media platforms. The term “transmedia” is becoming an important concept in understanding storytelling across multiple platforms.
The evolution of digital media and devices has changed the model of storytelling, driving the next wave of creative innovation.
The goal of the Academy is to develop the international partnership with academic, industry and government sectors with the purpose of pulling together resources, skills and networks to support the growth of transmedia in the digital industry.
Moving forward, the Academy will contribute to society through collaborative creation, shared knowledge and crafting solutions together with our members and partners.
