Theodore W. Evington III
J. Teddy feels very strange talking about himself in the third person, which is the format that is the standard for writing bio’s since *1834. So he won’t do that, And he doesn’t care if you don’t like it.
Sound Advice started as an idea that grew into a mini series for the web .I’ve worked as an actor on Stage, Film, T.V and the Web, but nothing is more fulfilling than creating your own insane story and then telling it. Which is what I did, but not alone.
So…. enough of that! Below are the amazing people who worked with me on this project. Read their bios, watch the series, laugh at everything (real loud in public places) and then tell all of your friends to watch too. Thank you !
P.S Sound Advice is Exclusively on Blip.tv/SoundAdvice

Cinematographer – DP
While I specialize in shooting narrative comedy, I have a lot of experience shooting doc, drama, and industrial projects as well. One of my strengths is that I can mimic any style or look on a very modest budget. I am equally comfortable running a large crew on set or run-and-gun guerilla style as a one-man-show. I also own my own gear and can accomodate almost any size production. I am currently based in the Los Angeles area.
I’m always looking for new and interesting projects, so feel free to contact me at ChrisDarnellDP AT gmail.com(Email address written this way to protect against mail bot harvesting)

A Washington Heights/NY native, my musical influences come from the wonderful diversity of people & music that NY has to offer. From Jazz, Latin & Classical, to the street sounds of Hip Hop which originated across the Hudson river in the Bronx, NY.
