CANTON – Several SUNY Canton students will be the stars of an international media event promoting the recently released DVD Max Payne.
London-based representatives of 20th Century Fox have recruited and sponsored the Criminal Investigation students as premier educated examples of law enforcement professionals to play out the complexities of a real-life investigation for journalists. The students will leave for New York City on Wednesday, Feb 18, and will spend about three days immersed in the scenario.
Max Payne is a 2008 action film based on a video game. The film was directed by John Moore, who will be joining the SUNY Canton students for an interview during their crime scene scenario. The plot revolves around Police Officer Payne’s (Mark Wahlberg) journey through the unsavory underworld of New York City as he investigates the deaths of his family.
SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs, as well as three master’s degrees in conjunction with SUNYIT, Utica. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 100 courses online each semester. The college’s athletic teams belong to the NAIA’s Sunrise Conference, enabling students to compete in their respective sports for four years.
