Sheridan’s Screen Industries Research and Training Centre (SIRT) is located in the heart of Toronto's film and television studio district at Pinewood Toronto Studios, Canada’s largest complex of soundstages.  SIRT’s production studio and lab facility is an industry and academic “technology clubhouse” dedicated to exploring digital image capture and creation processes for film, television, gaming and other screen-based industries.

 Using state of the art digital cinema cameras, stereoscopic camera rigs and post-production processes, as well as motion capture technologies, Centre researchers and staff work together with industry partners in a range of technology areas.  Tapeless workflow, the art and practice of stereoscopic production, previsualization and virtual moviemaking are some of the current topics.  Visit
