Phillip Arroyo Long
THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND SCIENCE
Phillip is a Cinematographer and 1st AC. His cinematography style is inspired largely by his Northern California upbringing alongside a scientific background. A bachelors degree in Physics from UC Irvine provides him a technical knowledge of light and optics as well as inspiration for his unique visual storytelling and attention to detail. He blends this with a passion for nature, opting to use natural light whenever possible and loves to trek into the outdoors for the perfect shot.
He is most interested in telling new and interesting stories from the fringes of society. Elevating diverse voices is core to his goals as a filmmaker and finds that the most interesting stories often come from those who aren't often given the stage to tell it. If the story is engaging, moving or exciting, he wants to tell it through the lens of a camera.
