The Producer  

Alan McKenna is a producer/director based in Nashville, TN. He has produced two projects for Uproar Pictures:  “WAK - Wrestling Absolute Kaos” television pilot and “The Odds” feature film, which is currently in post-production.  Attaining his degree in TV production from M.T.S.U., Alan immediately began honing his skills, working on sets of country music videos for high profile stars, such as Reba McIntyre, Toby Keith, Pam Tillis, Alan Jackson, Tracy Lawrence and many others.  He has produced and directed a TV pilot, “Partners In Design” for HGTV starring Jennifer O’Neill, and managed many local short film productions, including his own.  Alan’s career has included extensive stops with two advertising agencies, working as Creative Director, Senior Producer and Brand Manager.  He has worked as lead Producer/Director with many clients nation-wide, producing commercials, promos, long-form content, and web series.  Simply put, there‘s nothing Alan can’t produce, and his passion for production is infectious.  Asked about a Producer’s main function, he flatly states, “to produce.”
