THOMAS S. EVANS
Thomas is a multimedia artist, designer, and filmmaker preoccupied with production methodologies, genre/field distinctions, and the interface between works and audiences.
As an artist, Thomas is interested in how ideas and values may be subtly transmitted via repeated exposure to a particular set of conditions in the material environment. He believes that where rational discourse fails to persuade, a re-engineering of an audience's daily expectations may lead to their "independently" arriving at a desired conclusion - a concept all the more powerful in the context of design as a form of practical art.
As a filmmaker, Thomas is interested in exploring symbolic syntax and cinematographic/editing methodologies that synthesize, exploit, and advance the formal conventions that define cinematic categories. He believes in the possibility of a fluid grammar that allows for the avant-garde to seamlessly interact with the Hollywood monomyth approach to narrative.
Thomas holds a BA in Japanese from Georgetown University and studied film in USC's Film/TV Production MFA program at the School of Cinematic Arts.
