Evan Matthew Cecil began his journey in the film and television business with a hunt for a college internship, which landed him a position in the Production Department on the 20th Century Fox film ‘NINE MONTHS’.
The next eight years saw Evan take on a variety of film and television jobs, where he assumed a wide range of roles spanning numerous departments: Production, Art, Wardrobe, AD, and even Accounting. He was also lucky enough to work with many Academy Award-winners, supporting them in their various crafts.
Evan’s path eventually took him to Lucasfilm and a job at Industrial Light and Magic. There he worked on Steven Spielberg’s AI, as well as “STAR WARS: EPISODE II”. From there he moved to Skywalker Sound, where he spent the next 5 years working in the VP / GM’s office.
Eager to get back on set and into a creative role, Evan left his job at Lucasfilm and became a Producer at the television production company Indigo Films, which allowed him creative input and a direct role in the physical production process.
Due to his strong background in live-action production and his talents as a storyteller, Evan was promoted to series director. Evan’s first series, ‘I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT’, quickly became the highest rated show on the Investigation Discovery network, and had a run for 8 seasons. The network selected it for their first 3D network, and Evan became one of the first directors to work in 3D for the Discovery network. This first series led to Evan directing around 100 episodes for more than 15 different series.
In 2018, Evan directed his debut feature film, ‘LASSO’. The horror-thriller film is a unique and exciting, cinematic throwback to classic horror films, with brand new entertaining thrills, spills and kills to keep the audience screaming and cheering for more.
Evan has found his place designing the scene, directing actors, and communicating with his camera and production crew to produce innovative, creative, and successful projects.
