Phil brings a wealth of experience to an edit. His journalistic background gives him a great eye for a story and he understands the need to scour rushes religiously to pull out the very best material for an edit. Phil structures programmes well and always keeps to schedule. Phil is a great team player, has huge enthusiasm for every project he works on and always goes the extra mile. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Phil is an experienced, well-respected Producer and Director who I had the pleasure of working with for a few years on Countryfile. He’s a hard worker who cares about the programmes he’s working on and always wants to do a good job. He's versatile, organised, writes well and can always be relied on to deliver editorially sound and creative films. He's a great un-official mentor to junior members of the team who like his friendly and approachable persona. He’s skilled at making high-production-value quick-turnaround television on a limited budget and knows how to produce audience-pleasing programmes. He also had the respect of the on-screen talent who feel safe and reassured when he's directing them. He's a reliable, safe-pair-of hands who I'd happily have on my team again.

Joanna Brame, Former SP, Countryfile

I’ve worked with Phil and found it to be a really positive experience. He’s a professional, creative story-teller, with a can-do attitude and isn’t afraid to think outside the box when faced with challenges. I’d recommend him!
