Catch Me

You could say that "Catch Me" is a serious and location-based game.

The player is a detective in the case of a missing woman. He or she has to physically walk through downtown Cologne to find out what happened.

The project deals with prejudices that exist when gender-based violence occurs, such as victim blaming as a factor that affects investigations, public image, as well as the sanctions against perpetrators.

Surveying Gender equiality in film

This thesis examines several studies on gender equality in audiovisual production (Film, Television and Streaming) in different national contexts like Europe (Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom, France, Croatia, Italy and Austria) [EWA Report], Chile [Women's Participation in the National Film Industry] and the United States [Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, The Celluloid Ceiling]. The first objective of this research is to understand the design of studies related to gender and media, to eventually conduct surveys in audiovisual digital production. A second objective is to establish, through the analysis of the quantitative studies, the inequalities of gender that exist in the cinematographic ecosystem, mainly in the top of the most important departments (direction, production, script) and to understand how these results could directly affect the creation of a more diverse content in the different audiovisual media. A third and last objective is to present a source of strategies, actions and good practices that have emerged from these same studies and also from cinematographic or women's organizations and in some cases from governments, all aiming to address the lack of equality in audiovisual production.
