Scriptwriter and Producer
While Phil was a creative producer in Sydney for the BBC and many other cable and free-to-air channels, he wrote, edited and produced television promos for a wide variety of programs.

In a promo, the 'script' is not just the words the creative producer puts on the page for a voiceover artist. It's a combination of how those words interact with the sound bites they choose from the show, how they edit the footage together, and how they use music and sound. Together, all those elements can create a powerful emotional experience for the viewer that cuts through and gets noticed.
Phil's promo for FRONTLINE WAR (see below) was the principal component of a BBC Knowledge campaign that won a Global Excellence Promax Award in NY, NY, beating out competition from around the world.
“Phil is a screenwriter that directors and producers around the world are hiring - and rightly so! His ability to turn a good idea into a great screenplay is a talent anyone would want for their project.”
