Ty Evans is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, skateboarding filmmaker of all time. Beginning with his stint at Transworld Skateboarding and its series of skate videos, Evans teamed up with director Spike Jonze to become the most emulated filmmaker in the skateboard industry. His Girl/Chocolate video "Pretty Sweet" may be the best-selling skate video of all time.
