Hyper Island has launched a new, postgraduate level program at the school we helped them to launch in Manchester. Subject to validation in December, Interactive Media Management will be Hyper Island's first MA award and will be accredited by the award winning Teesside University. It builds on the immense success of the NESTA funded pilot, which saw students working on real briefs for the likes of Coke, Google, Sony Games, Oxfam, Nokia and Sky.
We checked in with David McCall, Director of the UK school and interviewed him for the Hyper Island blog, captured in the above video. In it, David reflects on the highlights of the journey so far including the day that Hyper Island students presented their work to the global Head of Creative Excellence for Coke; and talks about plans for the new Interactive Media Management MA.
