ESPN Article “Ty Evans Joins Brain Farm”
In this ESPN Article you get the details on who Ty Evans is and why he is the perfect fit with Brain Farm’s Skate project.
ESPN Writes - “Award-winning skateboard filmmaker Ty Evans has teamed up with production powerhouse Brain Farm Digital Cinema, according to a statement released this week.
A Southern California native, Evans has been making skateboarding films since he purchased his first camera at a thrift store more than 20 years ago. Best known for his work with the Girl Skateboards (“Pretty Sweet”) and Lakai Footwear (“Fully Flared”), Evans also works as a director for hire. To his credit, he’s even directed a commercial for Chevrolet that featured professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek making a car kickflip, which aired during the 2012 Super Bowl.
Evans, a long time friend of Brain Farm’s CEO Curtis Morgan, told XGames.com about his new venture, “We’ve been talking about me doing this for a long time. It hasn’t been something that I just figured out right now, I always knew that when I finished “Pretty Sweet” that’s what I wanted to do.” Evans continued, “I’m going to Brain Farm to make my next skate film. Each one of my skate films I want to make bigger and better than the last one and Brain Farm has amazing tools and resources for me to be able to do that.”
Brain Farm Digital Cinema, based out of Jackson, Wyo., was founded by filmmakers who revolutionized snowboarding videos with their use of aerial photography, pushing the limits of what is possible with groundbreaking films like “That’s It, That’s All” and “The Art of Flight.” From concept through post-production, Brain Farm utilizes revolutionary technology and has developed equipment specifically to capture action. Of moving into the realm of skateboard films and their latest addition to their creative team, Morgan said, “We love the sport of skate and it’s such an important part of board sports culture that Brain Farm is so passionate about. Ty and I have been friends for quite awhile now and I could not have dreamed up a better situation than this. Ty is such a creative artist and he is hands down the best filmmaker in skate.”
Evans’ primary focus, and reason for enlisting with Brain Farm, is to make the production company’s first skate film and to make his farthest reaching to date. Evans explains, “I think it makes sense for me to do a skateboard film that can reach the masses and a production company like Brain Farm is a perfect fit because they come from skateboarding and snowboarding. Curt, the owner of Brain Farm, has been skateboarding since he was a kid and I think we’re on the same page.”…..
