Creative facilities

Green screen, audio, video and animation studios

The Green screen, audio, video and animation studios are a network of students where ANU researchers and professional practitioners can light and shoot video for compositing, or record and mix sound. 

Inkjet Research Facility

In the Inkjet Research Facility clients, artists and researchers digitally scan a wide variety of materials and print on a wide variety of substrates, from small to large scale. Unlike high volume, quick turnaround, commercial bureaus, or small-scale businesses, in the IRF clients and researchers collaborate with experts on a flexible range of options which allows them hands-on creative control over the process and the ability to develop new ways of realizing their vision.

Research areas

Frontiers of photographic printing

Researchers in this area are investigating how the combination of digital and analogue processes can produce photographic prints of exceptional physical and optical quality unachievable through conventional processes.  

Site Specific Projection

Researchers in this area are investigating ways that existing places and spaces can be reconfigured through high definition, high powered interactive projection. Related research is investigating the use of virtual environments to reconstruct lost places, digital theatre staging, and the media archaeology of projection in Australia.
