I wanted to choose a career that I felt I would enjoy. Fortunately, I found my answer in two places.
I was debating whether to keep the course or drop it as it was considered by many, a “bird course.”

in a team as well as acting in front of it. Editing was another aspect of this course that was an integral
part that helped my decision. I learned how to place different scenes together with unique and artificial
effects with transitions to form a smooth screen play within a story-board.
I enjoyed the most. My previous year as a secretary was so enjoyable that I ran and fortunately, was elected
that I should use a video to present the candidates running for my position at that time. I envisioned my video

I placed myself in the introduction of a well-known series named Dawson’s Creek as the main character. Aside’s

It is an exciting field to get into because we are affected by both of these mediums in the world today. The School of Radio and Television Arts is my ticket to enter a world of exciting opportunities. It is also my ticket to understand and hopefully excel in the ever-changing media. The New Media aspect of the current Canadian communications industry is fascinating. As of now firms in Canada’s New Media industry produce both product development (using computer rather than traditional animation) and distribution of channels (written work distributed online instead of mailing). Such industry’s produce advanced services in areas specifically entertainment. What is important about the New Media industry is that it uses recent Canadian content and combines it with New Media such as the World Wide Web, the Internet and efficient devices such as CD ROMs. There are many opportunities that the New Media industry faces within Canada. Canadian firms have distinct advantages in media that stem from a unique mix of content, skills, technology and infrastructure. Our companies are in the forefront of developing graphics, animation and special effects software. Not only does Canada have a world class communications and information infrastructure, we are the most “wired” people on earth in terms of television, telephony and the Internet. In addition, we have outstanding educational institutions in areas such as animation and computer science. We are rated world class for creative talent in literature film and music. In order to produce a world class new media, it is crucial that Canada utilizes its abundance of human as well as recent technological resources. The Canadian government must finance the New Media industry and improve its distribution and access to the population. They must deliver services more cost-effectively to the public.
