About The Team

Joe Talbot (Director) is a fifth-generation San Franciscan whose emerging body of work has been recognized by beloved auteur Guy Maddin as “gorgeous, powerful and moving.” He is a recent Sundance Institute fellow and was recently profiled in Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces issue, alongside LBM star Jimmie Fails, among the top new filmmakers to watch. Perhaps most proudly, though, for the lover of Old Hollywood, Joe’s work has shown at San Francisco’s last two remaining cinema palaces: The Castro Theatre and The Roxie Theatre.

Khaliah Neal (Producer) is an East Oakland native who’s returning to her Bay Area roots to produce a story that hits very close to home. Khaliah has worked at an array of prominent production companies and film studios including The Weinstein Company, Jean Doumanian Productions, and Focus Features, where she worked on Oscar nominated films, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Moonrise Kingdom and Dallas Buyers Club, among many others. Khaliah is now an independent producer, most recently working on the Sundance 2015 winning documentary, 3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets and the Ford Foundation and Sundance Lab supported documentary 25 to Life.

Carlton Evans (Producer) is a Bay Area-based producer whose work has screened at top festivals worldwide, including Sundance, Tribeca, and Rotterdam. He is also the co-founder and executive director of The Disposable Film Festival, currently in its 9th year, which celebrates achievements in new media filmmaking. Carlton was awarded two Kenneth Rainin Foundation grants for Terror Tuesday, written and directed by Matthew Lessner. Carlton holds a PhD in Art History and Film Theory from Stanford University.
