Teaching the filmmakers of the future
For Dan, it is his students, who leave Middlesex University confident that they are best prepared to start their professional journey.
“We shape and educate future creatives, and in turn, Canon does too.
“By establishing that element of trust, we can make our own calculated risks to invest and adopt the new platform, new models and new products.
“It gives our students that employability edge. They have that added string to the bow as they know and understand the industry-standard product.”
Middlesex University also places a lot of importance on the soft skills graduates need. The opportunities provided by Canon for the students at Middlesex University are vital experiences that increase their employability.
“There’s this innate question about the gap between education and industry, and what our graduates ultimately leave the university with: the sort of skill sets, the competencies.
“Our aim is to close that gap or even eradicate it; so, we have ready creatives, filmmakers, fashion designers, photographers going ready into the industry and sharing their imagination and creativity with everybody.
“That is the core, and at the heart of everything that we do here at Middlesex, and it was just great that we have colleagues at Canon that share our vision and understand it and join us on a journey.”
