Name of creator
Formerly known as Media Production (197?-1983) and Media Services (1983-1994), IMD produced videos, slide-tape productions, photography and graphic design. Video productions included all campus events, instructional videos for programs such as Nursing, and some projects for external clients such as Alberta Children's Services. All events Dr. Grant MacEwan attended were recorded, and the production " J. W. Grant MacEwan Retrospective" was created in 1994, and updated every year until his death in 2000. It then became the "J. W. Grant MacEwan Memorial" which was first shown at his memorial service in June 2000. Richard Day joined the department in 1981 as Production Assistant and became Producer in 1994 under Clayton Wright. He produced over 900 productions, including a retrospective of MacEwan Medallion winners. He left in 2008 when his position was abolished.
