In 2018 I taught the Creative Industries theory unit to School of Arts and Creative Industries students on the Visual Effects (VFX) and the Music and Sound Design and BA/BSc (Hons) courses at London South Bank University.
The unit covered Creative Industries theory and practice focusing on the UK covering history and development; clustering; working and workplace culture; statistics, geography and growth; challenges of the digital age; copyright and intellectual property; and myths of the creative industries.
