Hey there! It’s Evan Allen and Barbara Allen – the new owners of GIFTS!!!!. First of all we would like to welcome everyone to our school in 2014. We’d like to extend the 25% off tuition offer for all spring courses. Offer will end on March 1st 2014. Who are the new owners you ask? Well; Evan Allen is from Nanaimo B.C., he attended GIFTS in 2000 – then went on to become a Production Assistant on the television series “Dark Angel”, straight out of GIFTS. He then went on to work on productions like Fantastic Four, I Robot, Chronicles of Riddick and many other Hollywood blockbusters in Vancouver B.C. Evan then moved into the Props department as a Props Assistant, then worked his way up to Props Master. He also spent some time in Art Department as a Set Decorator. In 2009 Evan moved to Las Vegas and became a camera operator and editor. Evan also spent ten years as the lead singer of the band “Yeah Whatever”. Most of his songs were featured in film and television productions such as “Lost Boys -The Tribe” and “Blood Ties”. Evan spent the last 2 summers as a mentor at GIFTS. “I left GIFTS, then made 23 short films on my own. I sent in my 1st resume and just like that my career started! Now 14 years later I now get to mentor the students at the school responsible for my career. Thank you George Harris for starting this type of school. Your film school is in good hands”
