Extended reality (XR) is booming in the global audiovisual landscape and will soon become an essential medium in artistic and audiovisual creation. But it requires ever-evolving technical, creative and project management know-how and skills which makes the development and transmission of this knowledge one of the major challenges of this industry.

Our training cycle, KITCH3N, aims to provide an XR training module in each of the major audiovisual disciplines: production, writing, visual capture, sound capture, 3D animation, and post-production.

Aimed for audiovisual professionals who wish to broaden their skills in the field of extended reality, KITCH3N provides the practical and theoretical bases that allows for developing these new skills independently and professionally in a space conducive to learning.
