Ryerson University Program Helps TV, Music, Interactive Digital Media Education

Ryerson University recently received funding to grow Ontario’s media landscape.

Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC) awarded a grant to Ryerson to help encourage Ontario’s creative sector produce film, television, music, books, magazines and interactive digital media.

“Financial support for our faculty and staff researchers is a critical element in making advances in Ontario’s media industry,” said Gerd Hauck, dean of the Faculty of Communication & Design at Ryerson University.

“Working in partnership with other organizations such as the Toronto International Film Festival not only creates a unique dialogue but also increases opportunities for new and innovative content and experiences. This is truly an essential building block for the future of our media industries.”

Professors Richard Lachman (radio and television arts) and Charles Davis (media management) were granted the funds from the OMDC to develop new content and products.

One project will evaluate the production of new products from various screens in cinema, TV, personal computer and mobile devices.

Ryerson will also partner with the Toronto International Film Festival on a project called TIFF.nexus. TIFF.nexus aims to help the next generation of storytellers succeed in a fast-changing digital media environment.
