Creative, diligent and passionate self-shooting AP with multi-genre background across Science, Factual, Arts and Entertainment. With a wide range of experience working with high-profile talent, camera and sound operating, drama reconstruction, live studio shows, kit management/DIT, global fixers, archive sourcing and setting up complex shoots across the UK and around the world while keeping up-to-date with the latest kit and technology.
I am currently working as a Director on The One Show and have recently completed 2 factual drama docs, series 3 of Inside The Factory, a BBC space exploration series with Stephen Hawking, a global science series for Discovery and the BAFTA nominated Stargazing Live. The latter included the 2015 live Eclipse coverage which received a 57.4% audience share, becoming the highest rated AM programme since the Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
I am incredibly comfortable with fast-turnaround productions and obs-doc filming along with long-form documentary, drama recon, live studio broadcasts and large-scale events.
I have a solid track record in setup, filming and finding quality onscreen contributors. I also have experience dealing with sensitive subject matters and contributors along with large institutions, companies and museums. I have worked on a large number of programmes broadcast on all UK terrestrial channels as well as several USA channels. Read Less

Phil worked for me on "Viking Art: A Culture Show Special" which was a one hour documentary for BBC Two presented by Andrew Graham-Dixon.
He did a fantastic job setting up our filming in Norway, Sweden and the UK - finding contributors and liaising with locations etc. As well as being a great researcher, Phil is a very good self-shooter. He operated second camera on the UK filming and did sound on the Sweden/Norway shoot. A pleasure to work with... I'd highly recommend Phil!
