Light Talk with The Lumen Brothers

LIGHT TALK is a place where lighting designers can feel free to express what really annoys them about the industry, lighting education, and the art of stage lighting design. Inspired by the beloved NPR radio show, "CAR TALK", LIGHT TALK features the musings and rantings of David Jacques, Stan Kaye, and Steve Woods. These three designers have been lighting the stages of the world for many, many decades. Burnt out and abused by the industry and the insanity of the profession, Stan, Steve, and David have escaped to the hallowed halls of academia where they wildly and fearlessly pontificate to innocent students of the art. LIGHT TALK takes these rantings to the world. Look for our weekly Pod Cast discussing the issues of our time. Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and very little makes sense. Welcome to LIGHT TALK!

In this episode of LIGHT TALK, The Lumen Brothers (and Sister!) talk about how to prepare for, and what to expect at your URTA interview.

Join Ellen, Steve, and David as they pontificate about: Sad football days in Dallas; Everything you wanted to know about preparing for your interview;  Showing process work in your presentation; Transfering your point of view through your art; The keys to what and what not to say and ask during your interview; How to sniff out schools that want to use you for cheap labor; Researching the schools' faculty; The real cost of attending graduate school; What you should expect in your financial package; Zoom vs. Personal Interviews; What to look for when you visit schools; Other important things to consider before making your final decision; and What to do if that relationship does not work out. 

Nothing is Taboo, Nothing is Sacred, and Very Little Makes Sense.
