Tim Mueller – Full Time Instructor, Technical Theater

Full-Time Theater Arts Instructor - Tim Mueller

The best thing about being a designer in the entertainment industry is that you get to tell stories. Instead of using words, we use color, line, texture, mass, proportion and other elements to elicit an emotional response from the audience. Tim Mueller has been designing and fabricating scenery, props and other decor for the past 30 years, creating just over 1000 projects in that time. In 1996 Tim started Gothic Moon Productions, a professional design and fabrication company which, in 17 years, grew into the largest scenic shop, sound stage and prop rental house in Orange County with a facility of over 35,000 square feet. Tim closed Gothic Moon at the end of 2012 to travel, pursue photography and other creative endeavors. Combined with his professional experience, Tim has been teaching design, fabrication, scenic painting, lighting and other technical theatre crafts for more than 20 years at Vanguard University, Concordia University, Orange Coast College and now, full time here at Golden West College where he looks forward to helping to tell many, many more stories.
