The Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) has three core missions. First, the institute organizes advanced technology media and arts training so Georgia State students are prepared to start careers in the entertainment and information industries. Second, CMII is building a model to nurture media entrepreneurs. Third, the focus is on industry collaboration – especially concentrated on the film and TV production, music industries and game design sectors – to generate research and economic development.
These three missions connect to the new CMII media content creation center and each is the focus of one of its three floors. CMII faculty members have deep and broad experience in the creative industries and they share their knowledge and industry connections with students. Formal partnerships to accomplish CMII goals are set in motion with regional media companies and educational partners, including the Georgia Film Academy.
