Department of Telecommunications graduate Joseph Toth has been named one of six recipients of the 2011-12 Provost's Award for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity for his work in sound design on the student production Nathan and the Luthier.  

According to an IU press release Toth worked as the sound engineer, dialogue editor, Foley artist, sound designer, composer, and music editor for the 52-minute film, which was the first student film shown at the IU Cinema.  

Toth is a December 2011 graduate from Lebanon, Indiana and credits the Department's Senior Lecturer Norbert Herber for being "a constant source of artistic inspiration and technical guidance."

Student winners of the Provost's Award for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity receive a certificate and $500. Their faculty mentors receive a commemorative pin, $500 in research funds for personal use and $500 to support future mentoring of undergraduates.
