The 2020-3D Media project was a four-year research project funded by the European Commission under the FP7 (7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development), and involved 13 industrial, academic and artistic partners. As an artistic partner CREW conducted practice-based research focusing on the translation of cinematographic and performative codes in immersive environments and on changing notions of narrativity, presence and spectatorship.
DREAMSPACE, a three-year European Commission FP7 funded project, researches and develops tools that enable creative professionals to work collaboratively and combine live performances, video and computer-generated imagery in real-time. The project comprises some of the top entities from the education, research and commercial sections, including The Foundry, ncam, Stargate Germany, CREW, Saarland University, iMinds and Filmakademie.
With its participation in the European research program PRESENT (in the context of HORIZON 2020), CREW strives for increased interaction within the virtual media.
PRESENT wants to create virtual digital assistants and companions - conscious agents - that look completely natural, show and perceive emotional sensitivity, enter into a meaningful dialogue, add meaning to the experience and act as reliable guardians and guides in the interfaces for AR, VR and more traditional forms of media.
PRESENT is a project in the context of HORIZON 2020
