Douglas Pringle is a producer and director of digital media, television and music, whose transmedia productions mirror the evolution of media technology.
As producer for PeakMedia since 1997 with partner Michaele Jordana, Douglas has developed projects that integrate multiple media to pioneer and create new forms of online experience, most recently working with medical educators to develop the platform for Bad Bugs, an online learning tool for doctors documenting the threat of resistant bacteria in hospitals.
Taking the digital experience to larger formats, he works as technical liaison between design and technology teams, architects and engineers, to produce digital video content for large public spaces such as the Media Tree, a 96-screen digital video tower produced for Casino Niagara, and Winter Sky, a 24,000 sq.ft. animated projection installation.
Douglas began his creative career as a founding member of Syrinx, Canada's first electronic recording concert group, and as the composer of the score for Joyce Wieland's feature film, The Far Shore. For PeakMedia, he co-produced Jordana’s Romance at the Roxy, a Casby Award winner and a Juno nominee, and her hit single CN Tower.
After four years at the Global Television Network as a producer and head writer, he teamed with Jordana to produce independent docudramas for Global - including Moving with the Light and Face to Face, a silver medal winner at the New York Festivals. For Cineplex Odeon, he wrote and directed The Making of The Phantom of the Opera, winner of the ITVA Eva award.
Douglas joined multimedia studio ICE as Creative Director, where he led creative development of new digital media applications for the Ontario Investment Service, the Royal Canadian Mint, and the Alexander Graham Bell Homestead National Heritage site.
As an educator, Douglas designed the curriculum for the Media Engineering Design Integration Program at Centennial College, and has taught in the Creative Electronics program at Fanshawe College..
