In 2013 Matter 2 Media’s Tim Kindberg and UWE’s Charlotte Crofts were funded by REACT to continue the development of Nth Screen. They studied the making of films as an audiovisual experience synchronised across participants’ mobile phones & tablets — and whatever other screens happen to be around. They held a workshop with film makers in early May, and worked with Hazel Grian as director to make Nth Bird, a short Nth Screen feature.
REACT (Research and Enterprise in Arts and Creative Technology) is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). It is one of four UK Knowledge Exchange Hubs for the Creative Economy and is a collaboration between UWE Bristol (the University of the West of England), Watershed and the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter
