Phillip Jackson is a Virginian from a big family of 8, living in Los Angeles, who misses a good meal at Waffle House. He creates in multiple mediums but finds cinematography to be the most fulfilling. Finding the combination of artistic expression, creative problem solving, and teamwork is a perfect match for him. He's been selected as a mentee in the American Society of Cinematographers Vision's Program in 2020 and was a cinematographer cohort in Film Independent's Project Involve in 2022. His latest feature as a cinematographer, "Three Ways" is streaming on Hulu.
He also uses his talents to help document the Black Lives Matter movement in Los Angeles as well as lensing features, shorts films, music videos, documentaries, and branded content in his time in Los Angeles. He's always up for a challenge whether it's fighting for justice or figuring out what shot best tells the story at hand.
He has experience shooting with motion picture film and high end digital cameras. He's also ready to travel and has a valid US passport. Sadly his French is a little rusty but he'll work on it if given the proper motivation.
