Producer – Immersive Technologies (part-time, fixed-term post)
The University of Bath’s Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA) and Office for the Arts are teaming up to create an exciting opportunity for a creative, enthusiastic and talented producer to work between the two groups.
You will work to draw out content arising from CAMERA’s research work in motion capture, virtual and augmented reality and healthcare technologies to facilitate a series of novel, public facing productions at the Edge, and at other venues in Bath and Bristol.
CAMERA is a flagship EPSRC Digital Economy Research Centre specialising in computer vision, machine learning and biomechanics research across the Departments of Computer Science and Health. It has a dedicated motion capture studio on campus which delivers a mix of leading research programmes and industry facing commercial projects with companies including Aardman, Satore Studio and Marshmallow LaserFeast. CAMERA works collaboratively with leading Creative Industries companies including Cubic Motion, Double Negative, Foundry and Synthesia. CAMERA is also a founding member of Immerse UK.
Campus arts centre The Edge is an arts and creativity hub informed by the context and research of the University of Bath. Its mission is to encourage and nurture arts/research collaborations, providing a place where artists, audiences, researchers and academics can find new perspectives and fertile ground to showcase new thinking and ideas. Here, mechanical engineers meet sculptors interested in moving structures, architects work with artists to shed new light on the nature of play and how architecture influences it, artists bring together inventing and engineering expertise to create artworks of scientific complexity.
If you are excited by the possibilities of VR and AR as artistic mediums and are passionate about bringing together the very best of creative science and technology research with arts curation and practice, then this is the job for you.
This is a part-time role (0.6 fte) for a fixed-term period until February 2021.
