Sean Fullan is an American twice Emmy nominated studio engineer, technician and editor, whose work has included Duran Duran's Live from London DVD.


Sean began his career as a teenager behind mixing boards for local music groups along the Northern California coast. A graduate of the highly respected Broadcast Communication Arts program at San Francisco State University, he recorded demos for bay area artists as well as working on student films and television programs. Upon graduating, Sean moved to Los Angeles to join the staff at Filmways/Heider Recording. He soon earned a credit on The Rolling Stone's Emotional Rescue album recorded in Paris, France during 1979. This opportunity led to a three-year apprenticeship with Producer/Engineer Glyn Johns in London, UK.

Sean returned to the USA and was inspired by the unfolding computer revolution. With a co-production and engineering credit for Lou Reed’s Blue Mask (1982), in addition to numerous records under his belt as an apprentice, Sean turned his sights to video editing, fully embracing video post production.

Starting as an assistant editor, he once again honed his craft and developed his skills quickly moving into the on-line editing chair at Unitel Video. In the late 1980s, he saw that low cost computer editing systems would take over the creative part of the business. He formed his own business, STF Editorial, to pursue the creative decision making process which was moving toward off-line edit rooms.
