Dedicated to producing quality
films through collaborative development, Evans and Jurjens have also been able
to secure financing for their upcoming films.
According to Evans, “Tavix Pictures has and will continue to evolve with
the industry to be the most efficient, dedicated company that can cut
‘standard’ costs in half by re-organizing workflow and keeping pace with
current technology trends that are associated with every aspect of filmmaking
from production through distribution.”
