The RTA School of Bite
The RTA School of Bite (S.o.B) is a collaboration with broadcaster Bite TV, Ryerson’s RTA School of Media, The RTA Transmedia Centre, the Information and Communications Technology Council, the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund. Through the RTA School of Bite, a select team of individuals will work together to produce new media programming using comedy to engage audiences across multiple platforms.
The School of Bite has now selected their first 10 participants, who will begin their work in January 2013. They will be exploring new and comedic ways to engage with audiences. Throughout their program they will be provided with expert mentoring, funding, production resources, and seminars.
As part of an ideation lab, they will collectively generate ideas in content and delivery, finding new ways to reach modern audiences using comedy and technology. Once the initial idea process is complete, production will begin. The team members will then begin working closely with their mentors to create the final product, which will be shown at a showcase event open to all participants, sponsors and the public.
