An Interactive Learning Experience for Computer Games & Visual Effects Students

As part of their effort in equipping APU students into the workforce community, APIIT’s School of Media, Arts & Design (SoMAD) recently organized an industrial visit to the Streamline Studios, one of the well-established game development companies in Malaysia and worldwide for the Computer Games Development (CGD) and Visual Effects (VFX) students. This visit was coordinated and managed by our lecturers from SoMAD, with aims to introduce students to the working culture and environment in the studio.
 
During their visit, our students had a chance to talk to some of the masterminds behind internationally-renowned video game titles such as Street Fighter V, Final Fantasy XV and BioShock Infinite. Some of the highlights in this visit were the introduction to international game projects the studio was working on, as well as a sharing session that provided students with an insight of skills required to develop a career in the creative games and visual effects industry. Speakers at Streamline Studios also shared some tips and tricks of becoming a good games designer, alongside their valuable experience developing games for multinational companies over the years.
 
An extra bonus was gained as the visiting group met some of the APU alumnus, who are now working at the studio as game developers. It was a fruitful trip as it broadened the horizon of students from both CGD and VFX in this gaming industry, apart from having an enjoyable afternoon with these game experts.

Green & Mighty - The ALL NEW Green Screen Studio

We are excited to share that APU & APIIT now house a state-of-the-art, professional Green Screen Studio! It is located at Level 3, APU Campus @ TPM. This new addition, as part of our new facilities in the APU Campus @ TPM, is catered for the media production needs of the newly launched programmes from APIIT School of Media, Arts and Design (SoMAD), which are related to the broadcasting, advertising and post production fields. It is available to all staff and students at APU & APIIT upon booking, to also benefit other programmes and clubs and societies-related activities.
 
The studio comprises a range of professional equipment, such as a Canon DSLR camera, a Sony XDCAM camcorder, a Dolly track and lighting systems. The walls had been made soundproof to isolate noise and external disturbances while a video or photo shoot is ongoing. With a 10-seater roundtable, it is now a complete and conducive learning environment that encourages creativity and new ideas. In addition, a corner of the studio has been dedicated for students’ projects showcase, in which excellent projects are exhibited to inspire more students.
