Dark Phoenix Films LLC

Dark Phoenix Films LLC

Dark Phoenix Films LLC began as Eric Phillips Cinematography in 2016. When the founder partnered up with his son to create a joint film company, the name was changed to what it is today. The company received LLC status in 2019. The goal of the company is to create local content using local talent and to teach what they have learned. Providing jobs and giving back to the local community which supports them is what drives the company as a whole.



Eric Phillips, Founder / Co-Owner


Not only am I graduating with my Bachelors in Digital Cinematography, I learned Screenwriting from Aaron Sorkin (A Few Good Men, The American President, The West Wing) and Shonda Rhimes (Private Practice, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy), Directing from Ron Howard (Willow, Backdraft, Apollo 13) and Spike Lee (Mo’ Better Blues, Malcolm X), Filmmaking from Martin Scorsese (The Color of Money, Cape Fear, The Irishman) and Jodi Foster (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black), and I have been taught acting from Samuel L. Jackson, Steve Martin, Helen Mirren, and Natalie Portman. I’m also learning special FX makeup from the Online Makeup School and the Stan Winston School currently.
