Media training in Hamburg – Media Campus Finkenau receives a new studio building

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on February 7, 2008

[IMC-02/07/2008] – With the progressing completion of the Media Campus Finkenau Hamburg’s media eduction & training programme are ever more strongly united at one place. On the Finkenau different private and state institutions are concentrated. They receive a new studio building shortly and an infrastructure necessary for the film and media training is created. With TIDE, a TV and radio station the campus area got a highlight already in the year 2004.

The extension of the campus with a new studio building was disposed of on 24th May 2005 by the Hamburg senate and is a component of the restructuring of Hamburg’s media education. The commencement of the building construction was in May 2007. The topping-out ceremony was celebrated with the visit of Hamburg’s first mayor Ole von Beust, attended by science senator Jörg Dräger, pH. D. on 5 February 2008.

Five TV studios with surface areas between 80 and 175 square meter and three radio studios are intended beside the administration rooms of TIDE TV/ TIDE Radio 96.0.

The spatial requirements of the training in film, sounds, camera and light will be fulfilled in the new building. From autumn 2008 all students of medias can start producing in these new facilities under one roof – in technically well equipped (digital) studios.

Users of the studios with a total area of 630 square meter will be the participating institutions of the Media Campus Finkenau: Hamburg Media School with the film course of studies, TIDE TV and Radio (incl. TIDE Academy), the faculty “design, media & information” of the University for Applied Sciences, the film training of the University for Visual Arts and the Multimedia branch office Hamburg.

All conceivable developments of the media education programme are met on the campus and can be toothed: from media management over illustration, media design, journalism, film up to advertisement and media techniques. The proximity of the different studies to each other and the common use of resources work synergetic for an innovative, interdisciplinary media training and new co-operate possibilities.

The architectural design of the two-story studio building will stand out clearly against the complex buildings of clinkers of the former gynaecological clinic (after architecture plans of Patrik Schumacher). In the course of a complete modification the former gynaecological clinic Finkenau from the 20’s (20th century) is used as an arrangement for film, journalism and media sciences. The capital costs for the studios amount to approximately 5.9 millions EUR – in the context of a total investment of 33 millions EUR.

On the Finkenau till end of 2008 a place will be created, which appeals the medias and creatives.
