© Thomas S. Evans 2017-

Thomas is a writer, 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.

日本語専門でジョージタウン大学卒から、南カリフォルニア大学で映画作りMFAプログラムで勉強。

監督として、ジャンルの境界を破って、象徴・イメージ・編集を活かして新しい文法の創造の可能性に興味あり。そこで、ハリウッドの貴種流離譚に基付く考え方とアバンギャルドのアブストラクト性を切れ目も無く交互作用が出来るようにする流動的な文法があるはずだと信じ。

芸術家として、建造環境を通じてアイデアや価値が微妙に伝えられる現象に興味あり。論理的な話が失敗してしまっても、傍聴人の日常期待を変更させたら、分かって欲しいことを「自ずから」分かるようになる可能性があると信じ。
