Volunteer Director Stina Pederson Takes on Fringe Central Front of House Duties

My husband, Brendan, and I moved to L.A. in the fall of 2010 to pursue our dreams of acting and writing, respectively. We first heard of Fringe midway through June the following year. We were dead broke, like so many Los Angeles transplants following their dreams, and I remember thinking, “Hey, I should see if they have any volunteer positions, maybe I could see some shows for free that way.”  June passed and I never got around to it, but I vowed I wouldn’t miss Fringe in 2012. I signed up to ...

Meet Fringe Central Master Electrician Kelley Finn

Hello! My name is Kelley and I’m a master electrician. More specifically, the master electrician for Fringe Central. Originally from Florida (no, not Disney World. North Florida), I’ve spent the better half of my life traveling around the US doing lighting for theatre, opera, dance, television, concerts, and events.  Two months after I moved to LA, I was hired to be the Fringe Central ME for HFF15 and nothing blew up, so they keep hiring me. Most of my work is done before Fringe officially opens but...

Meet Fringe Central Technical Director Corwin Evans

Hi folks, my name is Corwin; you’ll usually see me fixing some technical thing somewhere, or telling longwinded stories that go nowhere. I wandered into the first Hollywood Fringe Festival with Theatre Unleashed, the first company I worked with in Los Angeles. I was doing sound design for “Friends Like These,” a piece which has since gone on all over the place.I took to the big tent at Artworks right away. Y’know, there’s not an awful lot of hang-out time when you’re cobbling toge...

Meet Fringe Central Scenic Designer David Offner

For the past three years, I have taken an almost empty space, and turned it into a place for socializing, drinking, networking and anything in between. Hi, I am David Offner, and I am the scenic designer for Fringe Central. My first design in the Hollywood Fringe Festival, was back in 2013. I was working with my longtime collaborator and very dear friend, Brandon Baruch, on a Fringe show that he had written. Then in 2015, Dave McKeever had asked me about designing a “bar space” at the Dragonfly. Thi...

Meet Fringe Central Lighting Designer Brandon Baruch

Hiya, I’m Brandon Baruch. I’m a playwright and a lighting designer specializing in experimental theater, opera, and dance. I’m also the guy who designed the lights for Fringe Central. My first foray into Fringe was in 2010, when I co-wrote and directed a silly piece called Deicide, a Sorta Musical. I became hooked by the HFF bug, and I’ve been involved ever since. I became Staff Lighting Designer in 2012 when I helped mount some colorful lighting in Fringe Central, before it became ...

The HFF17 Interns: Rachael Garcia

 The newest installment of our intern series comes from HFF17 FringeTV Intern Rachael Garcia.  I have gleefully attended the Hollywood Fringe Festival over the past few years. I was drawn to its anything-goes spirit and supportive community. I’m a film production major so when I saw that Fringe TV was looking for an intern I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to gain more hands on production experience, as well as contribute to and see the inner workings of an organization that supports lo...

The HFF17 Interns: Melanie Allen

I got interested in being a part of the Fringe after visiting Scotland in the summer of 2016. I was a stage manager for a show in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and I fell in love with the entire process. When it came to this summer, I knew that I wanted to be a part of something similar. I also knew that I wanted to be an intern during the summer, so when I saw that the Hollywood Fringe had a set design internship I was ecstatic! Everything was coming together, and it felt like the puzzle was completed.I expected t...

The HFF17 Interns: Effy Yizhou Yang

The second-to-last installment in our intern series comes from Effy Yizhou Yang, HFF17 Set Design Intern. I consider myself really lucky to be able to participate in the Fringe internship program. There are not many programs out there that has specific intern categories, such as Fringe TV, Volunteering Organization, Set Design, etc. Those specific categories allow the interns to focus on tasks that they are actually interested in and develop skills accordingly.For example, not only was I helping in the executio...
