Colin Larsen - Cinematographer
Chrys is a dream to work with. As a collaborator I have complete trust in her decision making; she has a firm grasp of her story, characters and a keen eye and attention to detail when it comes to seeing things through the lens. She brings a great energy to set and is always open to listen to her heads of department to achieve the best possible outcome on a shoot. I can’t wait to see what we do together next!

I had a great experience working with Chrys on her Feature Film called Madison and the Happiness Jar. I loved her enthusiasm and passion for her work. She was very diligent and always very articulate with her communication. I look forward to working with her again in the future

I met Chrys Phillips when she was directing The Rise of Billy Jones. I was so nervous as it was the first time I had ever acted on screen. Chrys however made everything fun and enjoyable while remaining professional and focused and she was able to put my mind and nerves at ease.
Since then I have done various mentoring sessions with Chrys for film and they have been super rewarding. It is incredible to work with someone who has such a rich knowledge about the industry and will not hold back on that knowledge. Including subtle things that are needed for screen acting that I never would have thought about. I appreciate her honesty as she genuinely makes me feel that all she wants to get out of me is to make me the best actor I can be! Chrys also makes me feel like I can achieve anything I put my mind to. I am so lucky to have her in my corner and as a screen mentor.
