Alan Mays

Senior Video Engineer

Alan got the tech bug early in life by building Heathkit amateur radios for his dad. He got his start in video as an intern shooting live bands for the local cable company. From launching E! TV to being part of the DCA engineering team that pioneered uncompressed video of IP at leading Bay Area tech companies. Whether
designing systems, maintaining systems he’s built or performing the duties of engineer in charge for live productions, Alan is driven by implementing cutting edge
media technologies.

From supporting Editdroid at Lucasfilm, the revolutionary nonlinear film editor in LA, to twelve years as the Sr. Video Engineer at Skywalker Ranch, Alan has been an active part of the evolution of film, video and media technologies. After leaving Lucasfilm he was the Chief Engineer at Video Arts in San Francisco supervising the tech staff supporting post finishing for independent feature films.

In between stints in post-production he decided to switch gears and go back to live support. As an engineer for NEP Alan supported many A list live productions, covering such events as the Academy Awards and the Super Bowl.
