about the studio

The study is focused on working with multimedia content and applications, especially in digital photography, film, video, audio and data carriers. The purpose of this study, at the intersection of many disciplines of art, is to equip students with practical experience and good potential for applied artistic work. Students gain insight into the current state of the field and the ability to experiment with the use of multimedia tools. They discover and master a wide range of current means of expression through one’s own art. Graduates will find jobs as part of teams in desktop publishing and advertising studios, photographic studios, film and television studios, in the  web design sphere, in creating E-learning, computer games, teaching aids, in the development of multimedia applications or in their own art work.

characteristics of the field and career opportunities for graduates

This field responds to the lack of university-educated professionals who are well oriented in the field of new media and are able to work creatively in design or realize their own artworks. During their studies, students gain insight into the current state of the field, gain knowledge of classical and digital photography, film, video, audio, internet, art history and art theory. When working in the studio, they will be encouraged to experiment and creatively detect the qualities and possibilities of contemporary means of expression. Outputs will be static images, photographs, but also dynamic applications such as film, video, music video, animation, web application, etc.

Apart from the main studio subject Multimedia, students take practical subjects such as basics of graphic editors, painting, modeling, film production, editors for 3D modeling and animation, digital photography, visual studies, etc. Part of the curriculum are also theoretical subjects, e.g. art history, history and theory of design, color − light − space, history of multimedia production, human anatomy for artists, but also compulsory English language at a minimum A2 level (according to the Common European Framework). Graduates will find employment as part of teams in DTP and advertising studios, photographic studios, film and television studios, web design, in creating E-learning, PC games, teaching aids, in developing multimedia applications, or in their own art work.

entrance examinations for the above specializations

The entrance aptitude examination usually takes place in the first week of January, consists of two parts and lasts about 4 days. The first part evaluates the level of the candidate’s portfolio submitted (the applicant chooses their portfolio to create the broadest possible information about their artistic range).
