Hey, I'm Phil!

Atlanta, Georgia

As an M.A. candidate on Georgia State University's film production track, I've been exposed to the many facets of the filmmaking process. I naturally gravitated towards directing which gradually became intertwined with my love of writing and acting. My previous short film, Trois, took home the Best Fiction Award at the 2018 GSU Student Film Festival. 

 

I'm excited to embark on this upcoming journey with an amazing cast and crew behind me!
