Derral Eves is the executive producer of The Chosen, the highest-grossing crowdfunded movie or television project of all time. The Chosen series reaches across religious boundaries to give viewers from all walks of life a non-denominational, non-Hollywood portrayal of the life of Jesus Christ and the people who encountered Him. Derral’s unique skills in audience development and project distribution account for much of the project’s worldwide exposure and success. Derral has worked on countless video projects for two decades—but when he came across The Chosen, he felt like everything he had done in his career and personal life had been leading to this project. It is his #1 career passion and focus.
Derral is CEO of Creatus, a video marketing strategy company, and the founder of VidSummit, an annual event in Los Angeles for video creators and marketers. He has helped 24 YouTube channels go from zero to more than a million subscribers, and he has generated 54 billion views on YouTube.
Derral’s personal and career mission is to help individuals, brands, and businesses make a positive impact in the world, but his greatest passion is his family: his wife, Carolyn, and their five amazing children, Elle, Logan, Kelton, Thatcher, and Bridger.
