Congrats to Jam3 for their Gold win at Cannes.  Below are a few screen shots of the excitement!  It is getting a little difficult to keep up with Jam 3 and their awards – wow.

Jam 3 (http://jam3.com) was founded by three Sheridan Interactive Multimedia grads – Adrian Belina, Mark McQuillan and Pablo Vio.  The Sheridan Interactive Multimedia program is a one-year post grad taught in Oakville, Canada, just outside of Toronto. http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca

Sheridan Interactive Multimedia Alumni Win at FITC Awards 2012

April 30, 2012

Jam 3 Crew!

Secret Location Crew!

Wow!  What a night at the FITC Awards, firstly, I was getting there early, walked around the corner and bumped into Vincent Morriset coming the other way – the doors were not open yet.  So we went for a drink at the Office Pub (current home of FITO) and had a great talk about interactive storytelling, etc.  Highlight of the conference for me and it was a great conference!

FITC Awards - Future, Innovation, Technology and Creativity

I arrived at the awards just as the first award was being awarded – and it went to Jam 3, founded by three IMM alumni (Pablo, Mark and Adrian) as did the next award.  That was followed by Secret Location winning (Ryan Andal is there) and then Jam 3 again – after that, I lost track ;-).  Joanna Ong, graduate from last year was a Developer’s Site finalist as well!  Congrats to you all and all the other winners!

More pictures of the conference are here:

Jam 3 Wins Best Design Team and Best Development Team at Digi Awards!

December 7, 2011

Jam 3 won two Canadian Digi Awards (formerly Canadian New Media Awards) this year – 2011.  The incredible fact is that one was for the Best Design Team and the second was for the Best Development Team.  Way to go!

Jam 3 was founded in 2003 by three Sheridan Interactive Multimedia graduates Adrian Belina, Pablo Vio and Mark McQuillan.  They have since grown into a most excellent interactive team which also includes a number of IMM grads.  You can see the folks at Jam 3 in their creative assessment of what their team does http://jam3.com.  Here is a quote from Adrian Belina, one of the founders:

It a special evening when you are honoured for being tops in both Design and Development. These awards are especially nice because they’re not just about one project that a few people worked on… they speak to the hard working, passionate teams that make it all happen, all year round. Very proud of everyone at Jam3 right now.

These awards are also a great success for the IMM program as not only the partners, Mark, Pablo and myself, graduated from the IMM class but we also employ 3 developers from the program as well. A true testament to the quality of the program!

Stitch Media founded by IMM graduate, Evan Jones, also won a Digi Award for Best in Digital Advertising for the site Drunk and on Drugs.  Congrats Evan!

Sheridan Interactive Multimedia is now accepting applicants for 2012.  Great jobs!  Great careers!  Advance our culture making interactive fun and useful stuff!  Designers, come on in and learn how to make your work… work!  Programmers come on in and learn how to program in an interactive environment beyond navigation. Other disciplines like Marketing, Engineering, Illustration, Animation, Computer Science, welcome!  Get with the mobile revolution!

Sheridan Interactive Work at the Ontario Premier’s Innovation Awards

April 20, 2009

Gesture interactive works developed by two groups of Sheridan Interactive Multimedia students are being displayed at the Ontario Premier’s Innovation Awards ceremony on May 15th at MaRS in Toronto.

The work will be projected on the floor and walls of the reception area and features gesture technology from Gesture Tek.  People will wave to interact with elements of our innovations. In one of the features, the names of the guests will be read from QR Code readers and placed on shapes such as atoms and wind. The letters of the name will then animate to gestures.

The projects are two of the Sheridan Interactive Multimedia one year post grad program’s client projects where the students work in groups with live clients. Another group is working with Infusion to create prototypes for multitouch tables like Microsoft Surface. Spy Films in Toronto is also working with a group to create an interactive video installation for their walls during their 15th anniversary of their famed Media Agency Party.

PREMIER’S AWARDS

The Premier’s Innovation Awards was created to recognize and reward Ontario’s top researchers and innovators that are successfully turning global challenges into the next generation of jobs for the province.

The Premier’s Discovery Awards celebrates the research excellence of Ontario’s most accomplished researchers.

The third category, the Premier’s Summit Award is administered by MaRS. This Award provides research support to a small number of outstanding medical researchers, helping attract them to or retain them in Ontario and enabling them to significantly expand their research programs.
