Television script-writer and director, who specialises in animated children's television.
As a script-writer, David Evans's earliest work was in television documentaries for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). In 1990, he was working as a producer, director, and script-writer on Indelible Evidence, a forensic science series co-produced by the ABC, the BBC, TVNZ, and West German Television: he was responsible for episodes on car insurance broker John Fairley and the 1980 Woolworths Bombing extortion. In 1991, he co-wrote (with director Christine Sammers) One Australia?, a study of racism and mutliculturalism in Australia, for the ABC.
Evans's work as a director frequently overlaps with his work as a script-writer. But, in addition to directing episodes of The Ferals, Feral TV, Tabaluga, and Fairy Tale Police Department, he has also directed episodes of both live-action television and animation, including G. P. (1991-1995), Embassy (1992), Seaside Hotel (2003), Blinky Bill's Extraordinary Balloon Adventure (2004), Deadly (2006), and Life Rules (2007).
