Last March, we met at The Art Institute of Michigan in Novi, and members of SMPTE were asked by Marc Sherrod, Media Arts Director of AI, to take part in their Program Advisory Committee (PAC), as members of a professional community working in fields related to the Media and Audio programs at AI. Many of our group stayed to take part in this discussion with Marc. Those who attended will recall the impressive audio facility AI has installed and the Bachelor’s degree program outlined.
AI is holding another, all-school, PAC meeting on Wednesday, August 14, and he has invited interested Detroit SMPTE members to again come and advise how AI’s academic programs in Media can be tailored to be relevant to “real world” situations in our industry.
- A social get-together, with AI providing food, from 6-6:30PM.
- The PAC session will start at 6:30
- Following that, if needed or desired, we can have a short pre-season SMPTE section meeting while at AI.
- Art Institute of Michigan, 28175 Cabot Dr. (classroom building), Novi MI 48377 (north of 12 Mile, east of M-5)
This is an opportunity for our group to continue this outreach effort and relationship with AI.
Please RSVP using the SMPTE contact form so AI can provide for those who wish to attend and take part.
