Patrick Sean Harris
Owner/Executive Producer/Entertainment Specialist
Often referred to as the "technical one" Patrick's knowledge of video and sound systems is unsurpassed. He's the man a lot of people turn to for the answers. Patrick is constantly learning and reading everything he can get his hands on when it comes to the technical end of the business. He attends nearly a dozen industry related conferences a year, speaking at several of those.
Patrick started in the special event industry over 22 years ago. He began as a Mobile Disc Jockey, performing at many a wedding and social function. In 1990, Pat met his now wife (The CEO of Fun!)Jodi Harris. At the time, Jodi was working for ABC in New York on the “Regis and Kathie Lee” show. It was Jodi that got Patrick into the “Video Business”.
Together Patrick and Jodi produced several award winning local TV shows. Pat seemed to gravitate to both the technical and creative challenges that television had to offer. As a then “Video Rookie” Pat would get involved in any type of project he could get his hands on. Whether it was multi camera in studio productions, live sports or field production, Pat couldn’t get enough. “I would volunteer my time whenever I could” states Pat, “this is the best training you can get anywhere…and it’s free!” This free training paid off!
Over the years, Pat and Jodi would work together on several TV and Radio projects. They even did their first Internet radio show (now known as Pod casts) back in 1998. “It wasn’t as easy back the” states Pat, “the technology was in its infancy, so we had a steep learning curve…but we pulled it off”. It was indeed Pat’s technical savvy and thirst for knowledge that allowed them to always be on the cutting edge. “We had streaming video clips on our site all the way back in 1997…that was before many local companies even had web site”.
All this knowledge and expertise led Pat to one of his present projects. He is the Director of Photography and On-line editor for “In This Corner”. Pat and his 2 partners have been producing the show for almost 3 years now. In This Corner is a Magazine style Boxing show, featuring many of today’s and yesterday’s champions. Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Oscar DeLaHoya, Bernard Hopkins, and Winkey Wright are just a few of the nearly 40 boxing super stars that have been featured on the show. In This Corner can now be seen in over 50,000,000 homes.
Patrick is also very involved in his industry. He is the founder and co-founder of several local associations, including the Las Vegas Videographers Association. Patrick is constantly giving of himself and his knowledge. He loves to teach and share his knowledge with others. He is always willing to help out whoever he can, even some his colleges here in Las Vegas. “There is plenty of work for all of us. I will do whatever I can help bring up the level of production, here in Las Vegas.” It is this giving attitude and level of knowledge that makes Pat a respected and liked member of his community.
Patrick's camera techniques and editing style really capture the moment of any event. His upbeat personality and energy also makes him a natural for entertaining. Because of this, Patrick is in constant demand for his services. If a person can be great at all the aspects of his business, it's Patrick.
