About Me

Hi ūüĎč I‚Äôm Phil Svitek!

I’m a filmmaker, author, podcaster, xenophile, scholar & 360 Creative Coach…

And I’m dedicated to empowering aspiring artists.

My journey started at 15 with documentary editing, leading to groundbreaking work for the Connecticut Hospice. Emerson College was my next stop, where I edited Intrepid Descent, a skiing documentary. Under the mentorship of Friends‘ executive producer Kevin S. Bright, I honed my craft further. And, during one summer, I produced over 500 episodes of Garden Girl TV, having been hired by my professor, Robert Patton-Spruill.

Post-college, I connected with fellow Emerson alumna Maria Menounos, leading to my role as editor and co-producer for Adventures of Serial Buddies. When Maria and her partner, Keven Undergaro, launched AfterBuzz TV, I stepped in as Chief Operating Officer, spearheading digital production. I oversaw 150+ weekly shows, resulting in a staggering 70,000+ episodes.

Now in my 30s, I’ve expanded my creative horizons, venturing into web series, music videos, films (from shorts to features), books, documentaries, podcasts, and TV pilots. The list of people, brands, and companies that I get to work with boasts prestigious names, including The Grammys, Goop, Maria Shriver, Wheelhouse, Girl Boss, Yoga Girl, Elise Loehnen, Sex with Emily, Jemele Hill, Revolt TV, DJ Richard Vission, Sweet Taboo, and many others.

Stay Updated

Stay connected with through my vlog, where I share updates, insights, and behind-the-scenes glimpses into his creative journey.
It's been a minute since I last caught you up on my ventures! I share all the updates on the development of my animated feature film and what exactly that entails. I preview the long road ahead but how I'm looking forward to it. Throughout my retelling, I offer plenty of insightful nuggets anyone can use in any creative field. BTW, here's a preview link to the crowdfund I mentioned: https://seedandspark.com/fund/the-arbiters?token=9252f0d6d1487a9d4ca0520852e0d92b79ff9b80359dfc7853cb23a8f8e3bcd8.

I've been absent for most of 2024. But sadly, it's not because I've been working diligently on my longer term projects. It's because after 4 years of managing to avoid Covid, it finally hit me. And it hit me hard. That's why this vlog is a short update for you. I'm still not 100%, but I'm back to getting work done. Therefore, I aim to have new, meaningful episodes for you sometime next week. Thank you for your patience. Stay healthy out there!

In my lengthiest vlog to date, I delve into the insights and lessons drawn from the challenges of 2023, sharing how I'm adapting as we step into the new year. I explore the shift in my priorities, discuss the current status of my projects, and outline my aspirations. Revealing my word of the year, intention, and specific goals in four key areas, this episode places a particular emphasis on the mental aspect. Acknowledging the importance of mastering mental fortitude, I devote considerable time to this topic, recognizing its pivotal role in navigating life's uncertainties. To help you with the ideas shared in this episode, check out the last two episodes from 2023 of From the Heart with Rachel Brathen (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/from-the-heart-with-rachel-brathen/id1219728105).

In this week's vlog, join me for a quick check-in as I share exciting updates on my upcoming film's script progress. I'm on bullet point #106 of #117, so close to the finish line! My goal this week is to wrap it up. 

I also delve into the value of revisiting past work and the insights gained from a long drive from LA to Seattle. It's okay to cringe at your old creations ‚Äď it signifies growth as an artist. Embrace the journey, learn from the past, and keep moving forward. 

If you enjoy these insights and reflections, don't forget to like, subscribe, and share your thoughts in the comments below. Stay tuned for more updates and behind-the-scenes glimpses into my creative process!

Script Progress, Long Drives, and Embracing Growth - 11/14/2023: Vlog

In this week's vlog, join me for a quick check-in as I share exciting updates on my upcoming film's script progress. I'm on bullet point #106 of #117, so close to the finish line! My goal this week is to wrap it up.

I also delve into the value of revisiting past work and the insights gained from a long drive from LA to Seattle. It's okay to cringe at your old creations ‚Äď it signifies growth as an artist. Embrace the journey, learn from the past, and keep moving forward.

If you enjoy these insights and reflections, don't forget to like, subscribe, and share your thoughts in the comments below. Stay tuned for more updates and behind-the-scenes glimpses into my creative process!

In this episode, I raise a genuine question that's been on my mind and possibly on yours too: Why don't libraries offer more streaming shows to the public, given their role as custodians of knowledge and resources?

Libraries have transformed over time, adapting to digital advancements by providing e-books, audiobooks, and even introducing platforms like Kanopy for streaming movies and TV shows. However, despite these progressive steps, it's intriguing that not all streaming content is readily available through these platforms.

The question arises: Why the limitation? Is it simply a matter of studios being reluctant to share their entire catalog, possibly driven by a motive of profit and subscription-based services? Is it solely greed motivating this practice?

I'm genuinely open to exploring alternative reasons or explanations if they exist. Could there be other factors contributing to this discrepancy? And more importantly, why do we, as consumers and users of these platforms, accept such limitations if it is indeed driven by profit motives?

Join me in this reflection and discussion and let's ponder and share our perspectives on this intriguing topic, examining the dynamics between content access, profit motives, and the public's right to information and entertainment. Your insights and thoughts on this matter are greatly appreciated as we explore this ongoing debate.

Welcome back to another week of my vlog, where I share insights into my creative journey, aiming to inspire and provide actionable takeaways for all of you. This week, I've made significant headway with my upcoming movie's script. From bullet point #27 in the outline to #65, progress is evident, even though each point doesn't hold equal weight. With a total of 117 points, there's still a substantial portion to cover, but the detailed outline is proving invaluable in keeping story details at the forefront of my mind while I continue to churn out more pages.

An intriguing thought that surfaced this week revolves around the possibility of transforming this lengthy script into a limited series. The concept stems from the idea of a 3-hour movie with potential intermissions, but ultimately, considering the trilogy concept, why not divide it into three seasons, each consisting of two episodes? While it's a fun concept to ponder, it's not yet set in stone. The project will undoubtedly take the shape it requires.

While my primary focus remains on the script, I've also been contemplating updating the pitch deck, albeit considering this post-script version. Additionally, I've been collaborating on a filmmaking how-to book with a ghostwriter, while my second novel and a short film project have taken a backseat for the time being.

This week involved an extensive consultation on a documentary, a project where the creative journey has been fulfilling for the artist but requires that final 20% of work left to resonate with audiences. Cutting down the documentary to make it accessible for audiences has been challenging for the artist, a common struggle of letting go of beloved content for the sake of the project's coherence.

I stumbled upon an intriguing TikTok tutorial utilizing AI for video creation (https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZT8kHhVLa/), prompting contemplation about the balance between AI tools and their potential misuse as shortcuts to success.

Moreover, I discuss the value of transparency in life, mentioning the openness of sharing a therapy session with a friend and the transformative experience it offered, advocating for radical transparency to address societal problems.

Finally, I touch upon the unsettling trend of job expectations pushing employees to clear work ahead of vacations and the habit of elongating shows beyond their prime.

Join me in this diverse discussion encompassing creative endeavors, personal insights, and societal observations. Your thoughts and engagement are always welcomed. Stay inspired and keep creating!

I was honored to be invited as a keynote speaker for The Los Angeles Screenwriting Competition Awards Ceremony 2023 (https://lascreenwriting.com/). It's a wonderful film competition for writers and so I wanted to do justice by them and share the tips that have benefited me in my writing. You can catch all the nominees, speeches and winners here: https://www.youtube.com/live/XaAZXbmJOCE?si=AXareAYFzzj-0hOl. And submissions are open for next year too! So, if you're a screenwriter with a short film or feature script, don't hesitate to go their website or FilmFreeway.com to get your screenplay in the running. Please share your thoughts down in the comment section or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek. Lastly, for more free resources from your 360 creative coach, check out my website at http://philsvitek.com.

Hello again! We're back with another episode of The Wanger Show! She-Hulk and House of the Dragon just came out. Did we watch either of them? I don't know! I think so? Maybe? We'll see! We also got our first look at the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us! That show looks great and it's based on a game that was pretty widely acclaimed, just like its sequel, which wasn't divisive at all. Not in the slightest. Also Brian's out again, but our buddy Phil is here! We'll probably talk with him about filmmaking, being creative and whatnot, and if he's ever made a Phil-mmaking pun before.
