New B.C. film centre promises high return, includes forward thinking approaches to education in Transmedia

Capilano University in Vancouver, B.C. has opened up a new $31-million Nat and Flora Bosa Centre for Film and Animation. The facility is 69,000-square-foot facility and comes with $7 million in new equipment. The new facility is designed to align with the university’s new degree program in motion picture production, as well a new two-year visual effects program and the existing animation program.

The new curriculum is going to include marketing and transmedia. Bosa Centre instructor and filmmaker David Hauka said for members of the “transmedia generation,” keeping ahead of the curve in a changing industry means acquiring a variety of skills beyond making movies.
