About Us

We seek to make connections and create new unions by telling stories that add to our beautiful, yet fractured collective. We share stories of loss, love, and hope. We ask that you join us on our journey to document humanity through film, theatre, poetry, dance, and/or some combination thereof.

Kelvin Z. Phillips

Creative and Operations

I’m an award-winning filmmaker whose work has screened at numerous festivals, premiered on HBO/Cinemax, and is available on multiple screening channels online. In addition to my film work, I write short stories, essays, and poems–and I’m a foodie who loves to cook. I grew up in South Jersey, Willingboro specifically, and attended Howard University (Go Bisons!) where I received a BA in film directing. I received my MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU, and I have a PMP certification in project management, and currently hold the position of Director of Editorial Program Management and Resourcing at WebMD.
