opened in September 1967
. It's main campus
is 1430 Trafalgar Road
. They just built a new
part to that campus called the Sheridan Centre for Animation
(SCAET); the telecommunications
course I'm taking
is located in the bottom of that building. The rest of it is mostly
filled with post-grad
animation and media arts
classes, for which
is world renowned
They have another smaller, crappier
campus in Brampton, Ontario; although I hear it was recently outfitted with
new computer labs.
A lot of Sheridan grads end up working for companies like Disney, ILM and
Pixar and instructors and/or alumni have worked on the following films among
- Star Wars: Episode 1
- A Bug's Life
- Toy Story 1 & 2
- The Mask
- Osmosis Jones
- The Mummy
- I dunno, whatever you see that has mind blowing special effects and/or animation, there's
probably a Sheridan grad running around somewhere ok? Actually, I can't
believe I can't find a more comprehensive list of movies involving
people from sheridan. I'll update this node with something more complete
later, once I can find the information.
The Different Schools within Sheridan:

My dad went to Sheridan; he took Photography (Fine Arts). I think that's a large part of the reason I chose to go to Sheridan. Sort of my own way of following in my father's footsteps. Not exactly, obviously, since I went into telecom.
I didn't apply to any Universities because I didn't have the 'marks' or 'work habits' that most of those institutions required of a young student. On the day we had to have our applications in for colleges I left class and went to the guidance office and started leafing through course guides for different colleges. My dad had gone to Sheridan and it has a very good reputation in the way of Animation and Media Arts.
