A graduate of New York University’s Experimental Theater Wing, Linas Phillips started out as a live performer of experimental theater and alternative comedy while living in New York City. Linas’ day job for over 5 years was babysitting special needs kids, with whom he started making short videos.
Since then he has made several short video projects, including Ushtanka (Enough), a documentary about his 93-year-old Lithuanian grandmother which he directed, shot and edited. Walking to Werner was Linas’ first feature film, in which he vowed to walk from Seattle to Werner Herzog’s home in Los Angeles.
Phillips made his narrative feature film debut in 2010 with Bass Ackwards.
