Creative Technologies

Technology has always been a motor for the art of filmmaking. It has given a voice to silent films, color to the classics and a universe of visual effects to blockbusters. What are the possibilities today if we let the creative technical minds experiment at a film school?


  • Software Development & Creative Coding

  • Theoretical Backgrounds for Audio & Graphics

  • Applied Media Technologies, e.g.

    • Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Reality (XR)

    • Interaction

    • Physical Computing

    • Programming Interfaces & Technical Direction

    • Movie Production Processes

  • Academic and Artistic Research, Research Methodologies & Innovation

  • Film, Storytelling and Digital Media Art

The Program

The Creative Technologies program gives the opportunity to explore software development as creative tool. Technologies are not only applied but also advanced by developing novel forms of creative-artistic expressions.

The master program Creative Technologies combines audio-visual media technologies and software development studies with an artistic-creative exploration of novel forms of expression in film and digital media art. Creative-artistic computer scientists as well as technically oriented media designer come together in the context of the Film University to experiment with technology, creativity and film with an interdisciplinary approach.

Focus are all mechanisms that contribute to the magic of movies: from graphics, sound and visual effects over traditional production processes to novel forms of storytelling in XR (Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality), cross-media, and interactive.

The long history of the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF and its fundamental values and resources offer the first steps of a successful career. As part of a university, which teaches film practices but is equally research oriented, the master program Creative Technologies is unique in Germany.

Creative Technologies is an interdisciplinary program for students who want to think outside the box and who don't fit into a traditional study program such as Computer Science, Film or Media Design.
