John Salcido began his filmmaking career at 17 years old, as a freshman at Stanford University. While completing his degree in English with an emphasis in Creative Writing, he made several films with his now long-time producing partner, Neil Evans. This began, shortly following John’s earning of an MFA in Film Production from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinema-Television, the production entity that would eventually become B-Side Pictures. Under this banner, Salcido has directed several short films that have found success on the film festival circuit, including “Cataplexy,” a microbudget comedy that took down festival giants en route to winning nearly twenty awards at over seventy festivals across the world. In addition to his film projects, Salcido enjoys a career producing and writing for cable and network television, most notably on three Emmy-winning series, including the long-running CBS hit “Undercover Boss.”

Neil Evans – producer/editor

Neil Evans received a BA in Studio Art from Yale University, although he has not made a sculpture or painting since.

Thus, the addition of “producer” to his list of credits. He has spent his career as a filmmaker moving between the studio system and the independent world. While working in development at Universal Pictures, he was honored to work with filmmakers like Doug Liman, the Weitz Brothers, Shawn Levy and Clark Gregg. He has since returned to his independent roots, founding B-Side Pictures with John Salcido and focusing on editing and producing indie short and feature projects.
