Creative Interactivity On Futuristic Display


Sheridan College Interactive Multimedia Open House

Creativity continues to be the calling card of Sheridan Interactive Multimedia. An astonishing invitation with multiple hidden pages magically reveals this year’s students whose work will be shown at an open house from 10 AM until 3 PM on Tuesday, December 10th on the first floor of the Sheridan SCAET building.

Professor, Dan Zen, recent winner of the Canadian New Media Award for programmer of the year, says that with an applied foundation of creative interactivity, this year’s students have built phenomenal Flash and Director exercises and projects scoring well above an 80% average.

The one year postgraduate Interactive Multimedia Program, set in the Sheridan School of Computing and Information Management, concentrates on bringing together design, programming and project management in the multimedia profession. “Cross training gives our students the versatility that is applauded by our industry Program Advisory Council” affirms Associate Dean, Lenore Edmunds.

Students in the program prepare for industry through real client projects. Professor Andrew Smyk, says that this has been rewarding for both the students and the clients who have Websites and CD-Roms created in many different areas. This semester’s clients include:

Cameron’s Brewing Company
Hamilton Artists Inc.
Brampton & Area Community Foundation
United Way of Oakville
Women’s Information & Support Centre of Halton
Chris Bacon, Canadian Artist
Sheridan College Human Resources
Choristers of Milton
Travel Lodge of Burlington
Karcher Canada
eCommons/Agora – Liss Jeffrey

The client work along with the equally weighted personal projects will be shown in rooms S138 and S139 in the SCAET building of the Trafalgar campus. These rooms also boast SMART boards and demonstrations of the projects will be given using this exciting technology that lets you control the video projected computer using the whole screen as a touch pad. (Not quiet Minority Report but almost)

Companies looking for leading edge, well rounded, creative people are encouraged to attend. Students of artistic or programming backgrounds are also encouraged to attend to see what could be in store for them in the pioneering field of Interactive Multimedia. All are welcome.
