Abstract:


    Don Marinelli, professor of Drama and Arts Management, is the executive producer of Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center, a joint initiative between the College of Fine Arts and the School of Computer Science. The initiative brings artists and technologists together to produce installations that entertain, inform, inspire, or otherwise affect an audience, guest, player, or participant.

    Over the past 29 years, he has served various roles at Carnegie Mellon, including co-creator of the Master of Arts Management Program, co-creator of the Master of Fine Arts in Acting degree program with the Moscow Art Theatre School in Russia, and co-founder (with Randy Pausch) of the Master of Entertainment Technology Degree Program. He holds degrees from the University of Tampa and Duquesne University, and a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh.

    His book, The Comet and the Tornado, published this year, recounts the six years he and Pausch shared an office and created the center that has become recognized internationally as Carnegie Mellon’s “Dream Fulfillment Factory”.
