SINGAPORE - The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has launched Pixel Studios, a facility for digital content creators such as film-makers and game developers.
The 25,000 sq ft space in one-north is managed by Nanyang Polytechnic, and is one of IMDA's Pixel (Promising Innovation and Experiential Learning) spaces.
Minister of Communications and Information Dr Yaacob Ibrahim, who opened the facility on Tuesday (Nov 29), said: "Through the programmes, facilities and resources available, this will be a common place for content creators to meet with like-minded people from diverse backgrounds, across the media and tech sectors and experiment with new ways of media content creation and storytelling."
Pixel Studios will house production equipment,such as a green screen studio, thematic spaces which can double up as film sets, and video recording and post-processing equipment.
There will also be areas of one-north designated as "film friendly" zones, where film-makers can get permission to film on-site more easily.
Pixel Studios will also collaborate with industry partners to run programmes for content creators. The first of these is Spark By Maker, a joint workshop held with digital media brand Maker Studios, for film-makers to collaborate and hone their skills.
There will also be a game accelerator programme developed in conjunction with goGame, to equip promising game developers with publishing, marketing and business skills.
