Research interests

My research interests revolve around new forms of media creation and production, from an industrial as well as social environments, particularly in those processes related to 'digital cinema'. From this general framework, I list my particular interests as follows:

  • New media as a context for the interrelation between emergent and established media forms.
  • Redefinition of roles and traditional limits regarding media production and consumption.
  • New forms of independent media production and self-production.
  • Media fiction produced by fans.
  • Machinima.
  • Issues regarding innovation, cultural industries an new talent.
