Cal State San Bernardino theater arts lecturer Carol Damgen has put Inland Empire film making into tighter focus by producing and acting in an updated take on H.G. Wells’ classic horror tale, “The Invisible Man.”

Damgen also designed costumes for the 88-minute film, which was presented this summer at the 2018 Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival in San Diego —  one of just 10 horror/suspense films shown during the event.

“I am incredibly proud that we made this film entirely in the Inland Empire for just over $50,000, using many local students on the project,” said Damgen, who teaches courses including Creative Drama and Intro to Theatre. “Also, we got to feature the beautiful, historic California Theatre in San Bernardino, a protected landmark, which is one if not the jewel of San Bernardino.”

Los Angeles Times

At the start of the summer, the newspaper published a feature article on an exhibit of ten works by Katherine Gray, CSUSB professor of art, which was on display at Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles until Sept. 9.

“‘As Clear as the Experience’ (also the title of the show) crowds 86 pieces of black domestic glassware on shelves in a greenhouse window frame. The inky stockpile renders the window box useless, deviously replicates on a second glance (or so it seems), and simply eats light,” reporter R. Daniel Foster wrote.
