Dan Bartlett
Programme Director – Moving Image & Digital Arts at London College of Communication


Dan Bartlett is Programme Director for Moving Image and Digital Arts at London College of Communication.

As an animation visual development artist Dan aims to explore the duality that exists between fundamental artistic and cinematic principles, and emergent digital technologies and workflows. His work is primarily focused on the impact of these practices on mainstream feature-length and long-form television animation production, live-action filmmaking and virtual reality experiences.

As an academic, Dan has developed curriculum within a range of successful digital arts programmes, including the MA Virtual Reality and BA (Hons) Virtual Reality courses at London College of Communication. As the Director of the ERDF-funded ACE IT project (Accelerating the Creative Economy through Immersive Technologies) Dan is championing the adoption of Immersive Technologies within SMEs and start-ups in London by bringing researcher, academics and companies together to develop new technologies and products. 

Dan is a strong proponent of coupling technical skills training with explorative learning in order to promote an employment-focused approach to arts education.
