Sian Ayres-Harden '15: I'm a director of film and theater, film maker, and co-founder of Firelight Entertainment along with Garielle Korte from UCSB. We recently released a synchronized film version of a Midsummer Night's Dream which we created during the Covid 19 quarantine. In creating this film we utilized remote film making techniques, our extensive UCSB alumni connections as well as many other actors from across the United States. Our mission was to create a film remotely, and prove that despite obstacles and distance, artists can join together and create art anywhere. We are currently in pre-production for our next film which will use will include interactive elements and innovative storytelling.

Jesse Waddell '16: My Gaucho culture is the teachings and experiences that I've taken with me throughout my life. I'm currently working for USPS but I am also an active company member in The Original Practice Shakespeare Festival where we do completely unrehearsed productions of a variety of Shakespeares' plays. Not only that but I live stream a dungeons and dragons storytelling show with fellow cast member Tyler Koontz on Tylers' Handsome Corner Tavern.
