Teaching & Research Interests
Scholarship, Research & Creative Activities
Mario Positano supports student learning and film making. In Sheridanâ€™s Honours Bachelor of Animation, Mario teaches in the Digital Stream, which includes Digital Tools (1 and 2) and 2D Applications. He also runs workshops for additional learning, and those include Compositing, Rendering, Texturing, Lighting, and Sound (Mixing, Recording, and Foley). In addition to teaching, Mario is the Technical Mentor for third-year group films. He guides and advises the production of group films. Each film has its unique style and challenges, which is demanding, but he finds this very rewarding to achieve. Outside of Sheridan, Mario continues to learn about teaching and digital aspects of animation. He also rides a motorcycle and plays guitar (not at the same time). Guitar playing has been the driving force for his professional learning and achievements.
