The VSS Team
Adrian Offord, Managing Director
Adrian’s long experience in the entertainment technology business, from coal-face to boardroom, has given him a deep understanding of both the technical and creative needs of clients. His close relationships with leading production and lighting designers underpin the VSS approach to service.
Immersed in the business of show technology for over 30 years, Adrian has provided lighting and video solutions for theatre, television, live touring and special event productions worldwide.
After leaving his role as Head of Europe at VER in 2018, he founded VSS to provide the best quality video equipment, service and support for valued clients large and small.
Jonny Hunt, Technical Director
Jonny is responsible for the management and delivery of every technical aspect of VSS’s project work, as well as defining and maintaining the company’s own standards of technical excellence.
He studied computer science before applying his technical mind to the entertainment video market. In 14 years at the sharp end, he has worked both as a freelance engineer and directly as a project manager for leading solutions providers, adding LED and media server expertise to his skillset along the way.
His experience includes countless projects across the UK, Europe and the Middle East, predominantly in film and television, but with plenty of corporate event and concert touring experience in the mix.
Lucy Taylor, General Manager
After 18 years in the industry, from manufacturing to sales and rental, Lucy is perfectly equipped to manage the ins and outs of VSS’s growing operation.
Her customer service and sales skills were forged in the crucible of global sales company TMB. Next, she spent eight years in the video market, gaining a solid grasp of the processes and requirements of event production, from design concepts to the forces of budget and deadline.
Providing day-to-day support for project managers and crew, Lucy enjoys the problem-solving aspects of getting every job done to the highest standard. “No matter what, you make it happen,” she says.
Mike Brown, Project Manager
As project manager for VSS, Mike draws on knowledge and experience gained through almost three decades immersed in the world of live entertainment video.
He began in the business in 1991 as a bench technician with Screenco, and his natural interest in technology saw his skill set develop rapidly, through screens and processing, to cameras, vision mixing and project management.
After going freelance in 2004, his expertise was called on by countless concert tours and music festivals, plus substantial film projects - including the last three Star Wars movies, numerous television projects and major sporting events including several Olympic Games.
