Phil Hawkins is a Master of Arts candidate at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia. Phil was born and raised in Austin, Texas and has lived in Atlanta since 2017. As a native Texan, he can confirm that the stars at night are indeed bigger and brighter in Texas. Phil studied Cinema and Media Arts at Vanderbilt University, where he discovered his passion for comedy writing and performance. Since moving to Atlanta, he's served on professional projects in writing, production, and post-production.
Making films has been a passion of Phil's since a very early age. At just six years old he was using his LEGO set to storyboard the next Harry Potter film. According to Phil, it was the creative energy and entrepreneurial spirit unique to Atlanta that reaffirmed his love of film and production:
"Video is something special and the world has taken notice. Inside of that frame there's no limit to what you can create. When done well they draw each person in and bring them to a new way of thinking--much like a website bio."
