Born and raised in Philadelphia, Evan Dennis is a multidisciplinary director with exposure in the arts as far back as he can remember. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in design from Tyler School of Art, Evan began his professional career in design and animation. Evan’s sensibility for conceptual thinking and strong visual storytelling eventually led him to transition into film.
Evan's work blends beautifully crafted cinematography with a relentless attention for natural, human moments. Growing up obsessed with skateboarding and punk rock, defiance, free-thinking and a never-ending pursuit of originality are key to his approach.
In 2010, he directed a short film for N.Y. Adorned, which earned him his first Vimeo Staff Pick. Evan has directed work for clients such as Metallica, New Balance, Google, Adidas, Samsung, Guinness, Mountain Dew, Dunkin Donuts, Scion and Intel. His work has been featured on the cover of STASH, Vimeo, Fubiz and more.
His latest short film GUERRA, produced by Frank Grillo (The Grey, Captain America, End of Watch), will premiere in 2018. Evan currently lives in Los Angeles where he is currently developing his next narrative projects.
