Welcome to AV Technician -- Tips and Tricks for Audio Visual Technicians.

I am bringing this web site and Youtube channel to you because I want to share some of the things I have been doing since 2001 as an AV Technician. Since 2001 I've been an AV Technician --- Freelancer --- I semi-retired in 2023. Now I want to share what I've done over those years. 

My name is Paul Donovan. I have my own independent video production and audio/visual services company -- Living Productions Inc.. I've been in business since 1996. I used to do web site design for small businesses and organizations but have dropped that and focus now on doing video work. Please check out my company web site for information about our services.

What you will find on this web site is things related to being an AV technician in the normal meetings and conference sense. You will not find information about huge shows, concerts. Nor will I be discussing about "installer" technicians -- they are a completely different breed of AV Technicians. This site is all about the little guy who wants to be an AV technician setup team or operator  for events, meetings, conferences.

My role is primarily as a show/event operator. But I also get involved with the setup and strike (tear-down) of the events I work with. If I'm there during the setup I know where everything is, where to find things if I need them during the show, and what short-comings there might be to the event and try to find a way to get extra equipment brought in, or how to work around it.

All the best as you explore my channel. I welcome feedback and comments about this web site and the Youtube channel. Click CONTACT US in the menu for a way to reach out to us with your feedback and comments.
