NBCUniversal gives the gift of 3D to Sheridan film students

Unveiling ceremony and 3D demo on November 20


NBCUniversal has made a generous gift that will allow Sheridan to incorporate 3D stereoscopic content production into the curriculum of its film and television programs, including a new Bachelor of Film and Television that launches in 2014.

“This gift enables the purchase of equipment that will allow our students to shoot, edit and deliver 3D content.  It will also equip us to develop modular workshops for industry, and support our ongoing research activities at Sheridan’s Screen Industries Research and Training Centre (SIRT),” says Sandy McKean, Associate Dean of Film, Television and Journalism at Sheridan.

Sheridan’s new 3D capacity will be on display on November 20, when students and faculty will carry out a demonstration of 3D filming, editing and playback.  Senior representatives of NBCUniversal will be on hand to watch the demonstration and take part in a plaque unveiling.  Details of the event are provided below.

“3D stereoscopic production is the latest evolution of film production and is quickly becoming an integral part of the film and television industry,” says Jeff Zabudsky, President and CEO of Sheridan. “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.”

“We are honored to contribute to the education of the Sheridan College television and film students.” says Ron Suter, Executive Vice President of Sales at NBCUniversal Television Canada.  “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.”
