About Evette

I'm Co-Founder of Gemini Pictures and have completed 5 short films, (not including 48hr. film projects) 4 webisodes including the Digital Series, Between Bullets, starring Heroes actor James Kyson and served as a Line Producer on a feature film (SAG ULB contract). All in a 4 yr span. I attended UC Santa Cruz in their Creative Writing Program, after a year I moved back to San Diego and attended San Diego City College for 2 1/2 years receiving a A.A. in Anthropology, A.A. University Transfer Studies, and a Certificate of Achievement in Accounting. I transferred to the renowned Chapman University and received my B.A. in Screenwriting.
I've done volunteer work at the San Diego Asian Film Foundation, San Diego Latino Film Festival, and countless hours helping local student film productions. I also volunteer with the Chapman University Alumni Association. I served as a Judge in 2012 San Diego Indie Fest. In 2012, I interned at the San Diego Film Commission learning about permitting, Public Relations.
I have completed 2 Feature Screenplay designed for animation, titled "Abracadabra". The story is about a magical family traveling the Old West to settle in San Diego while being tagged by a group of vicious bandidos. Harry Potter meets the computer game 'Oregon Trail.' The 2nd, "Fight On," a prequel to the Between Bullets Digital Series. The film stars her twin, Cassandra, as Karina Vasquez (a character in the series). The film is about her seeking revenge on a Cartel Leader responsible for the death of her family, by rising through the ranks, fighting, in underground mixed martial arts tournaments .


My goal is to have a long and productive career as a Producer and Writer, representing and displaying a positive and diverse perspective as an ethnic female in Film and Media Arts
