BOURN KIND- Tiny Kindness Project to premiere at Tribeca Film Festival

It was hard keeping this news under wraps for the past few months, but I'm excited to announce that BOURN KIND- Tiny Kindness Project will premiere in June at the Tribeca Film Festival!

This is the second project that director Rachel Myers and I have worked on, and the post-production audio was done entirely in the Meyer Sound Design Studios here at UCI.  I did the foley performance, editing, mixing, and mastering, and MFA student Costa Daros worked as the foley mixer.  Here we are hard at work recording and mixing foley.

Congrats to everyone who made this beautiful film happen!  Check it out if you can!

UCI Sound Design: class of 2025

Recruiting students into the MFA Sound Design program is always tough for us.  We can only take two students each year, and there are always terrific students out there that we have to decline.

That said, Mike and I, along with the rest of the program are delighted to welcome our incoming students for this fall: Melanie Lopez and Jeremiah Turner.  Melanie and Jeremiah stood out to us with exceptional combinations of talent, creativity, curiosity, professionalism, and experience.  We're looking forward to working with them for the next three years!

I asked each of them to submit a short bio, so here they are, in their own words:
