Sheridan Unveils NBCUniversal 3D Stereoscopic Production Studio
President Jeff Zabudsky, along with faculty and students in the department of Film, TV and Journalism, welcomed representatives from NBCUniversal to view a demonstration of the new 3D stereoscopic equipment that was purchased with a generous gift from NBCUniversal to Sheridan College.
Vice President and General Manager of NBCUniversal Television Canada, Ron Suter, and VP Sales, Wanda Bradley visited Trafalgar campus in Oakville to see our new 3D camera equipment, mirror rig, monitors, and editing workstations in action. Advanced Television and Film technologist James Rowan showed off his martial arts skills on a beautiful set built in the SCAET wing for the event. Ron, Wanda and Jeff joined Associate Dean of Film, TV and Journalism, Sandy McKean, and the dean of the Faculty of Animation, Arts and Design, Ronni Rosenberg, in donning 3D glasses and watching James perform on a monitor in 3D, while Media Arts 2010 graduate Mark Bone gave them an introduction on how to film and edit 3D video.
Following the demonstration, our president, deans and visitors officially unveiled Sheridan’s new NBCUniversal 3D Stereoscopic Production Studio in the SCAET wing.
“We are honored to contribute to the education of the Sheridan College television and film students,” said Ron Suter. “Having the most up-to-date equipment on hand to enhance their skills in the media industry is a great asset and we look forward to watching their future work on the small and big screen.”
“3D stereoscopic production is the latest evolution of film production and is quickly becoming an integral part of the film and television industry,” said Jeff Zabudsky. “It’s critical to embed this technology into our curriculum and ensure that our students are fluent in 3D processes, workflow and production as they enter the media workforce. Through this contribution, NBCUniversal is demonstrating its firm belief in Sheridan’s strong reputation for turning out well-rounded and capable graduates. We are grateful for their support.”
Sheridan College has been training students in film and television for nearly 35 years, and its Media Arts program, which has been a respected source of media talent since its inception, has now evolved into a new Bachelor of Film and Television, which launches in 2014.
