Stunt Double for Eamonn Walker

There are three things Darnell E. Evans (D.E.Evans) loves the most in this world, God, family, and the art of filmmaking.  Starting at an early age understanding his love for visual storytelling by writing stories for visual novels, to his high school years discovering his love for reading and writing poetry, Darnell knew he had a gift.  It was further confirmed when a spiritual experience led him to his true gift, filmmaking.  Since that day, day in and day out, the artistry of film has been on his mind with a constant drive to always learn to perfect his craft.  It is no wonder he has been in the industry for over twenty years with eight feature films (four released on Amazon Prime and the other four in post-production), television shows that has been shown on Sky4 TV, Wynn Network, and  Cox, as well as countless other films/videos that range from music videos, corporate videos, documentaries, and training videos.
    As an award-winning director and cinematographer, Darnell's skills and talents make him the complete filmmaker.  He is also a writer, video editor, colorist, and vfx artist.  He also does sound design and motion graphics.
    Currently D.E.Evans works at the Virginia Beach Fire Department heading the multimedia unit.  Here, he has brought a more cinematic approach to the training video as well as corporate videos, PSA’s and films.  Big productions he has worked on in the fire department has been with the United Way, Virginia Fire Rescue Chief’s Conference, as well as Every 15 Minutes.  The Virginia Beach Fire Department has an incredible reputation worldwide due to the high quality content that is produced.  Outside of the fire department, Darnell is a co-owner of his own production company, 3rd Shift Entertainment Group where he has helped produce films and videos for YWCA, Urban League, Hurrah Players, and Cox 11 with the most notable productions being the feature film “And You Call Yourself A Christian”, the Hurrah Players “Black Girl Magic'', and “Precinct 757”.  
    With a spiritual-led drive and a never-ending hunger to continue to learn and get better, even after twenty plus years of professional experience in video production and accolades, Darnell believes he is just getting started.  The sky has no limit to his talents and skills and what he can accomplish.
