Evan has directed commercials for Legal Sea Foods and Seventh Generation and original segments for PBS's Emmy Award Winning series Between The Lions.

Fade in from black: Shot of man from torso up clutching a note in his left hand, on a clear and brilliantly lit dawn. Camera slowly pans out and upward to reveal he is standing on the precipice of an incredibly vast ravine that has been set ablaze in the morning light.
A violent wind blows, whipping the man's loose fitting clothing around his scrawny frame, threatening to pick him up and throw him into the fiery abyss. He takes a deep breath and releases the battered and crumbled note.
The camera follows the note in its floating descent into the canyon as it is dashed about the jagged rocks of the cliff's edge. A hawk passes by, sending the note twirling and twisting. Aaron Copland's "The Heiress Suite" can be heard faintly, slowly building to a crescendo. Finally the note lands softly to the ground revealing a single sentence: "This is John Moreland".
