Evan Ottoni is a freelance filmmaker and writer located in Toronto. After majoring in Philosophy and History at the University of Toronto, Evan worked for several years in project and account management at a tech startup. During this period he continued to moonlight as a freelance writer, collaborating with friends in the Toronto media industry.
In 2014 Evan began working at a boutique production studio as an Associate Producer, producing predominantly commercial televised content. Here, he was afforded the opportunity to closely observe the professionals he worked with on a daily basis.
