Sheridan Interactive Multimedia had fifteen volunteers in the FITC Flash and Design Festival in Toronto Canada – one of the largest festivals of its kind in the world. Volunteers made many industry contacts and did an excellent job helping with registration, photography, stage management and more!

Professor, Dan Zen, attended the festival, “It is always nice to continue relationships with Flash friends from around the world – and add a few more… I’ll leave a comment on the blog entry when my pictures are in. The festival is invaluable in preparing curriculum. In that regard, the focus was on ActionScript 3, Flex, Apollo and the new CS3 suite from Adobe. Very impressive as well was PaperVision3D‘s full 3D in Flash which will be incorporated into the curriculum for 2007/2008″.
The one year post grad Sheridan Interactive Multimedia is currently accepting applicants at http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca, please let anyone interested know and perhaps you will be interested as well. Students learn to create interactive multimedia beyond navigation allowing people to create content and communicate with one another.
FITC is a festival for new media designers and developers to learn the latest in interactive techniques and technologies primarily focused on Flash and how to apply them to their own work.
