Nina Vindum Rasmussen is pursuing a PhD at King’s College London with funding from the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP). Her research explores how algorithms and big data affect the European film and television industry. The project traces the impact of these technologies in different phases of screen production and especially zooms in on screenwriting.
Before moving to London, Nina obtained a degree in Film and Media Studies from the University of Copenhagen. She also worked as a Communications Manager for a municipal project in Copenhagen’s Harbour. Here, she used her pen and camera to report on cultural events at the waterfront. She also wrote a 200-page handbook on the topic.
Nina is keen to make connections and initiate collaborations with the television industry at the Edinburgh TV Festival. She particularly looks forward to discussing the role of European players in a datafied television landscape.
