Philip Todd trained in film at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where he specialized in editing. He was editor of the graduation film My First Spellbook (2011) which went on to screen at festivals across the world and win various awards, including a Royal Television Society award.
Philip then studied a Masters in Acting for Screen at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama with a view to learning more about film making from the actor’s point of view. He went on to work as an actor on a variety of projects and continues to do so. (Find out more about his acting work here: www.philip-todd.com).
In 2014 Philip directed and edited the Gaelic short film Còmhla Riut-sa (2014) which was awarded Best Music Video in Scottish national film competition FilmG. He then began working on Jesus, Son of God? (2014) a powerful thirty-minute documentary exploring the claims of Jesus. Editing this film proved to be a massive step for Philip, both professionally and in his personal walk with Christ. The film is a reminder of how God’s powerful love and intimate affection for us is displayed with undiminished clarity in the person of Jesus.
Philip’s next project is a documentary on the life and legacy of Scotland’s radical reformer John Knox. Keep up to date with that project here: http://Facebook.com/johnknoxfilm. Or watch Philip’s award-winning music video here: http://youtu.be/zCG51Z8YUVU
