Creative Media Labs, a project funded by the European Regional Development Fund, is establishing an immersive and interactive media lab in York for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) working in the creative screen industries in the Leeds City Region to access state-of-the-art equipment to enable them to undertake R&D and innovation activities.
Creative Media Labs is part of the XR Stories project. XR Stories was established in October 2018 with a £5.5m grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and match funding from the University and from industry partners. Led by the University of York, in partnership with Screen Yorkshire and the British Film Institute, it will support research and development for and with the Yorkshire screen industries. It brings together film, TV, games and digital media businesses from across the region, in collaboration with leading national and international companies and organisations, and a consortium of regional universities. The focus of the research and development is storytelling: Creative Media Labs will harness the latest digital technologies – and especially immersive and interactive tools and techniques – to develop innovative and commercially viable models for the next generation of screen storytelling.
The CML Creative Producers will be critical members of the XR Stories team: working closely with SMEs in our cluster to realise commercial outcomes from immersive and interactive digital storytelling.
The roles will involve a mix of creative development, project facilitation, development of business cases, and helping our industry partners transform initial ideas into fundable project proposals and meaningful and manageable projects.
They will be responsible for delivering substantial support to a portfolio of companies over 3-12 month periods; encouraging and enabling SMEs in the Yorkshire screen industries to undertake relevant innovation and R&D activities.
