CAST is a study programme at the Zurich University of the Arts focussing on audio-visual content for new and mobile media. CAST graduates are storytellers specialized in small and short formats: they create "short stories for the small screens".
In a month long project in fall / winter 2010, CAST students explore their personal "question of the day" on this channel.
