LAZARUS SOUND LAB

Equipped with state-of-the-art sound mixing hardware and software, the Lazarus Sound Lab offers production students at UCSB hands-on training in the latest programs and techniques for editing and mixing high-quality sound. Designed with the help of local audio expert Chris Pelonis (who has designed studios for George Lucas’s Skywalker Ranch, musician Jack White and Disney) and experienced audio engineer Sven Holcomb, the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and high-end speaker system give students the ability to edit, process and mix audio for film and work with Dolby 5.1 surround sound.

POLLOCK THEATER

The Pollock Theater is a destination for passionate moviegoers. Each screening in this state-of-the-art venue is an event, featuring a moderated discussion after presentation of a film or television episode. Our guests include a wide range of artists, scholars and media makers, who extend the cinematic experience through conversation and dialogue with the audience. The Pollock Theater’s undergraduate interns produce and direct multi-camera recordings of our events for broadcast on UCTV.

SOUND STAGE

The Sound Stage provides student filmmakers with equipment and facilities for creating high-quality media productions. This 1250-square-foot production studio, located at the rear of the Pollock Theater, is the only dedicated space for student media production on the UC Santa Barbara campus.
