E. Alan Contino is celebrating his 24th year as a professional motion picture and television engineer. The past decades in the entertainment industry started off as a secondary career to Electrical Engineering but have transpired into the primary focus as a specialist in Stereoscopic, Motion Capture, Visual Effects and Post-Production technologies.
Working on various research and development projects along with SMPTE, IEEE, and AES, becoming head of research for the Virtual Theatricality Laboratory was a natural fit. The VTL special projects for live stage production have allowed Alan a high level of development and education in multi-system integration for Visual Effects technologies.
