Alan Chebot

Alan Chebot

Director & Executive Producer

Alan founded Parallax Productions in 1988 after eight years of “boot camp” as a nationally syndicated producer for “Evening Magazine” at WBZ-TV, Boston. The recipient of numerous awards including multiple Emmys, Alan has been recognized throughout his career for excellence as a director, producer, and writer. With over 30 years of experience working on broadcast programming, documentaries, commercials, PSAs, music videos, web content and corporate videos, Alan thrives on tackling the next big challenge. He has worked on location all over the US, Africa, India, Israel, The Far East, and Europe. In the late 90’s, Alan was the creator, executive producer and director of the nationally syndicated TV series, "The Wild Wild Web". For three successful seasons, the program was acclaimed as the television guide to the Internet. Distributed by CBS/King World, "The Wild Wild Web" aired in 148 markets across the country. More recently he produced, wrote and directed the award-winning documentary, “Song for New Orleans.” Broadcast nationally and distributed internationally by Hearst Television, the feature-length film chronicles the rebirth of the New Orleans music scene immediately after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. No matter how ambitious or modest the project, Alan’s philosophy is that nothing is “off the rack” at Parallax. Surrounded by an exceptional production team, he continues to push the boundaries to deliver minty fresh creativity to his clients.

Alan has a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and earned a Masters Degree in Broadcasting and Film from Boston University. When not at work, he is an avid road cyclist, jazz drummer, and skier. His favorite productions are in collaboration with his wife Terri…their sons Daniel, Jesse, and Ben. His little black dog named Bear is really cute but neurotic. Good thing he has that psych degree.

Jessica Neofotistos

Jessica Neofotistos

Project / Production Manager

Jessica was born and raised in Massachusetts with a strong love for storytelling.

After earning her degree in Film/Video Production at Drexel University in Philadelphia, she pursued one of her biggest passions...Sports! Jessica broke into TV and video production at the legendary NFL Films, and then made her way back to New England to pursue a career at NESN, the network of her beloved Red Sox and Bruins. After a 2007 World Series and 2011 Stanley Cup Championship, Jessica moved into the agency world at Viewpoint Creative, where she produced broadcast, web, and social media campaigns for clients like CBS, HGTV, ESPN, Microsoft, and Reebok to name a few. With a passion for live-action, documentary-style storytelling, Team Parallax welcomed Jessica as its new Production Manager and Video Ninja in the summer of 2014.

When not at the office, you'll frequently find Jessica hiking New England trails, out on the ocean, or hanging with her rescue dog, Paris. She is also actively involved in the community and volunteers around town whenever possible.

For kicks, because she knows you're wondering how to pronounce her last name? Knee - Oh - Foe - Tis - Toes. Or "Neo" for short.

In her free time, when not working on her latest short story, as an obsessed foodie she’ll likely be checking out a new restaurant after visiting the Institute of Contemporary Art or as a film junkie, taking in the latest documentary.
