MORE ABOUT PHIL:
I have always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife and our cat.
In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.
I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
"I'm a full-time film director & best selling instructor who teaches aspiring filmmakers how to create incrediblefilm careers and videos.”
As a young kid I'd listen to music with my headphones on full blast, imagining scenes and stories that fit together perfectly with all the sounds I was hearing. I then quickly found my life's passion, creating films that engage the visual and auditory senses in ways that move people.
Today this passion has lead me to do the same thing, on a much larger scale.
Through creating high end commercials with well-established clients, artists, and brands from around the world, I’ve discovered what make films great.
I found out that it doesn’t matter what budget you have, which software your editing on, or what equipment you own. What DOES matter are the underlying principles and techniquesbehind what you do that creates something amazing.
Learning this on my own outside of “traditional” schooling, I truly wanted to create a space where others could benefit from the knowledge I'd gained. I created a youtube series designed to “help creative minded, turn their passion into a career.”
Today, this channel has been showcased by film festivals and websites such as, "NoFilmSchool" with over 2.5m views&40k inspired followers.
