Evan Ford

Evan first got into filmmaking after being an extra on a film which was shot in his hometown, which immediately got him interested in the film industry. Wanting to further his education in the film industry, Evan chose to go to SAIT and will be leaving with a greater understanding and knowledge on how the film industry runs and operates. He has also gained a lot more respect for the people who put their time and effort into the movies that people love. His goal is to work on set as a 2nd AC, but can see himself working any role in the Camera Department. He can also see himself doing Grip and Gaffer work as well, and with a fascination for action movies, would one day like to try action design and possible stunt work. After he graduates, Evan plans on finding work in the industry here in Calgary, and having applied to unions for Grip and Gaffer work, he hopes to gain more experience in the industry, and ultimately plans on doing some 2nd AC work in the future.


Evan’s favourite genre is action/action thrillers, with his favourite movies including Tenet (2020), Skyfall (2012), Interstellar (2014), Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018) and Inception (2010). His favourite director being Christopher Nolan because of how he takes other worldly concepts and shoots them on actual film.


“Thanks to all the teachers that taught me at SAIT.”
