Welcome to The Philm Blog! It's a practical look at directing and working as a freelancer director in the industry today. No theories. No gear reviews. Just weekly videos for those interested in the craft of directing commercials and films from the film sets I'm working on.
This channel will also follow the journey of making #ORIGINS, a stupidly ambitious Star Wars/Indiana Jones inspired short film.

🙋 This channel is for you. Yep, you. Aren't you lucky? If you have a question or topic you'd like covering in a future video, leave it in the comments below. Thanks! ✏️
🎥 WHO IS THIS PHIL HAWKINS BLOKE?
I'm a features and commercials director with over 10 years experience working professionally. In that time I've directed five feature films which have been released by Sony Pictures, Lionsgate & Netflix as well as over 100 television commercials. Most notably I wrote and directed the psychological thriller THE LAST SHOWING starring Robert "Freddy Krueger" England in a critically acclaimed role alongside Finn "Iron Fist" Jones. My work has also been praised by the likes of Carrie Fisher, Garry Marshall and Steven Spielberg. Yep, the actual one. Is that enough name dropping for you? :) 😉
