Digital Soundscaping (CITY3034)
Music powerfully influences engagement, shaping the verisimilitude of the virtual world, impacting the mindset of the participant by steering emotion and influencing behaviour. Understanding the role of music for immersion and developing competency in specialist digital recording software enables the creation of these soundscapes, which can be more powerful still when integrating 3D sound or Ambisonics.
Client Driven Production (CITY3037)
Freelancing is commonplace across the creative digital sector. Digital creatives might provide developer tools, 3D printed models, virtual walkthroughs, animations, 3D visualisations etc. for various clients. Freelancing allows for the honing of a technical specialism and requires excellent personal and interpersonal communication, as well as adherence to legal and professional expectations.
Ethical Immersion (CITY3038)
Digital Immersive experiences have the potential for profound and impactful outcomes that may positively shape an individual's worldview. A proposed and fully justified immersive experience is likely to secure investment from a funding stream. The developer needs to consider the psychological, philosophical and ethical impact of immersion and base their arguments on stringent academic research.
Innovative Digital Implementation (CITY3039)
This module provides an opportunity for students to synthesise knowledge, understanding and skills to produce an Interactive Digital Immersive experience that has the potential to impact positively on real world problems. It will make use of appropriate digital technical platforms and act as a showpiece promoting the students specialisms.
Environmental Digital Architecture (CITY3035)
Internal and external environments induce a visceral response and aid spatial awareness necessary for successful navigation. Advanced 3D technical tools and methodologies enable the creation of realistic visualisations and accurate architectural representations via 3D scanning and Photogrammetry, whilst 3D printing enables the transference of these digital models into real world objects.
Programming 3D Development Tools (CITY3036)
Immersive environments are typically realised through utilisation of a games engine. Advanced application of the game engine with higher level programming and creative application of 3D algorithms enables the creation of bespoke tools and systems to generate game play systems with new tools regularly emerging on the market for generating virtual world elements.
