Background: Julian Phillips (profile) Writing experience includes, most recently, a production of my script, 'The Sunset Mechanic', with Forge Films in Virginia. View clips on-line at YouTube with a search for 'Allegheny Sunset'. My feature film script, 'Ex$pendable', finished a two-week production-shoot in October of 2007, in New Jersey, with a budget of $100,000. Also, the option and sale of my fourth feature script to Cinewerx Films in Munich, in 2006. In 2005 I had three other feature scripts under option. In 2006, my screenplay 'Pilofio and Elogia' was optioned by Hell's Kitchen Films for production in Costa Rica in 2007. Also in 2008, the option and purchase of my feature screenplay, 'The Loco Tree'. I have written a series of 90 short children's books, which are being professionally illustrated and published in Belgium, along with two seasons of an animated cartoon series being developed by the same company. I have also done four half-hour audio-theater plays for Lion's Den Studios in Virginia, and an educational syllabus and CD for The Institute for Excellence in Writing. I also teach screenwriting classes locally. An exciting 50-minute stage-play was completed in 2005 for a successful Los Angeles stage and TV actor, and a documentary film-script of mine is currently being filmed and edited in South Africa. Two of my short stage-plays were performed in San Francisco in 2006. This in addition to screen credit in the past on about 12 educational and travel films and videos, published fiction, and work as a print journalist. I have completed at least 10 feature scripts on spec. A more complete filmography and resume is available, as are more samples or references. Articles on my scripts appeared recently in Creative Screenwriting and Scr(i)pt magazines. I'd be very happy to discuss your needs for material on your projects, etc. Visit my website for more information. IMDb credits are listed on that website under a search for the title, 'Crashing Cannes'.
Interests: Unlimited outlets for sex and aggression---but beyond this, life in general, trees, rocks, sticks, bodies of water, planetary issues, sustainability, human rights, social justice. Music, friends, learning new things---fishing! Motor-vehicles, some politics, but truthfully not much any more. Eclectic agnostic spirituality. MONEY! Sources of funding for film projects, etc. Also very interested in things that go bump in the night---or explode in balls of flame.
Goals: Success in various venues. Overall life excellence. Recovery from past hurts and mistakes. A harmless life. Reduction of my personal carbon-debt footprint. Climbing Mount Everest is still possible---eternal youth would be great.
