Phil has been making short films for ten years now, ever since his first high school video project required him to film a scene from “Hamlet” and he delivered a twenty minute adaptation of the play, complete with several sword fights. Phil was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He earned a bachelor of arts in film/video production from Grand Valley State University. To help him make better fight scenes, Phil has extensively studied stage combat and is a certified actor/combatant in the Society of American Fight Directors.

Director Statement
