Mike Lay

Director/Executive Producer - VEEPS: Profiles in Insignificance
Mike Lay is known for juggling. Not the kind you’d find at a county fairground, a man in
a bad suit tossing clubs, balls, machetes, and the occasional chainsaw in the air above 
him, but one who cool handedly keeps budgets, production schedules, crews and talent 
whirling overhead; always in complete control. That agility and mastery comes from 
more than 20 years of developing one’s craft. 

Mike produces award-winning commercial media for major agencies and international 
corporate clients, specializing in video production for global Internet, retail, and major 
events. Mike is a graduate of the University of Oregon and holds a Master’s degree 
from Oregon State University and has been a freelance and independent commercial 
producer and director for the past 10 years. VEEPS is Mike’s first feature length film as 
producer and director.
