Though the state’s budget meltdown has boosted tuition and drastically cut local admissions, somebody at the University of California San Diego apparently thinks the show must go on, literally. That seems to be the message of a new “Request for Information” posted online by the school, seeking interest and evidence of qualifications from a host of would-be event producers and theatrical staging specialists. “UC San Diego holds several special events throughout the year including but not limited to Graduation, Chancellor’s Events, News Conferences, Founders’ Day, Associated Students Alumni Gala, and individual college campus events,” according to the document, issued June 8. Among talents and services UCSD is seeking are those involving “Flooring, Stage, Rigging and Electrical Installation etc.”; “Integrated creative design of scenery, lighting and video displays”; and “Creation of event experiences using lighting, sound, video and more.” In addition, the university desires “skilled and client-friendly operators” for video and PowerPoint presentations. It also seeks to fill “critical production positions, especially when talent needs to be brought into markets where local talent is lacking.” Expressions of interest are due June 22.
