Photos from Tim's Thesis Critique

For those of you who don't know, in our program we have a moderated public critique session for all MFA thesis sound designs. We invite a professional designer to take part and provide this invaluable response for the capstone design of each designer's tenure. It's a whole day affair starting with lunch, a walk-thru of the design, attending a performance, and then a public critique.

For Tim's show we brought in Robbin Broad. Robbin is currently Principal Media Designer for Walt Disney Imagineering -- if you've been to any Disney park in Asia or visited California Adventure you have likely heard her work. She is also a very prominent regional designer - having designed at La Jolla Playhouse, Berkeley Rep, Kirk Douglas Theatre, as well as hundreds of local designs. Also present at this critique were Nephelie Andonyadis (costume respondent), Caitlin Cisek (MFA costume thesis), Rob Salas (MFA directing thesis), and Bart DeLorenzo (directing respondent). The show was MARY STUART by Friedrich Stiller and was presented in the Robert Cohen Theatre. We are honored to have Robbin's support for this and the other events in which she has taken part in.

We are also proud of Tim's amazing work on this and all of his shows here at UCI. The next phase of his thesis completion and pending graduation will involve a juried paper or related digital project.
