Tyler Dunning Evans

Nashville raised, Los Angeles based filmmaker Tyler Dunning Evans has a knack for big ideas. With a strong eye for natural light, color and environmental composition, Tyler often takes what may seem like an ordinary frame and transforms it into something truly cinematic and often surreal.

His background in editing and graphic design support his visions in having created campaigns and content for brands like the 99 Cents Only Stores, InStyle, NBC and Just Food For Dogs. Narrative driven in his craft, Tyler ensures story is always front and center of his work.

Most recently, he created an emotional music video for Steve Aoki and the Backstreet Boys song “Let It Be Me.” Tyler’s also worked with artists like Daddy Yankee, Shaggy, Steven Malcom and Deorro.

Sean Davé

Sean’s love of watching movies started early. He grew up in Hawai’i, wearing out VHS tapes of The Brave Little Toaster in the dawn hours before school.

From these humble (and admittedly odd) beginnings, he dove headfirst into directing. Sean quickly carved out a varied path through the industry—from headphone commercials starring pro gamers, to baby formula spots with Olympic gymnasts.

Sean keeps it simple: he aims to create good work with good people, on every single set. This passionate approach to production has led to collaborations with brands such as Audio-Technica, Sony Pictures, GQ, and many more.

Joshua McGowan

Josh is an award-winning filmmaker who’s distinct style was developed from a love for story. Raised in the suburbs of Chicago, movies became his way of understanding the world around him. He started making them for himself when he acquired a DV camera, and he quickly migrated to LA where he began working in development with an academy award winning producer. 

His commercial career was launched when he sold a series of spec commercials. He’s since shot thoroughly for big brands, celebrities and respected institutions. His works are constantly exploring new ways of emotional storytelling, always keeping a cinematic edge and heartfelt sentiment at the core.

He is currently developing his first feature film as a director and lives with his wife and young children.
