XtremeMedia 06 at the University of Kent

Following the success of XtremeMedia 05, This year’s XtremeMedia 06 is currently running in the Department of Electronics at the University of Kent. XtremeMedia ’06 is Kent’s largest dedicated exhibition for everyone interested in the production and creation of digital media.
The event includes a presentation of the Museum of Canterbury Digiguide project, examples of the most outstanding work from the Department’s own Multimedia Technology and Design degree programme, and workshops for schools covering website design, 3D animation, image editing and special effects.
Among the exhibitions, visitors have the opportunity to view work from the Department’s new MSc in Computer Animation. This programme, a collaboration with Framestore CFC, the largest visual effects and computer animation studio in Europe, equips students to become highly skilled professionals in the animation and visual effects industry.
Visitors are also able to see a wide range of digital films and animation, interactive and web-based creative tools and exhibitions of digital photographs and final year posters.
Les Walczowski, director of the multimedia courses, said: ‘Our students consistently win prizes for their work. This year’s showcase is the best ever with some truly outstanding animation and interactive applications’.

XtremeMedia 06 is open from 10am – 4pm, 20 – 21 June. It is free of charge and open to all.
