My name is Drew Mackie. I have a dog and a mustache. (See photo.)

I am a writer, reporter and editor (both kinds) who lives in Los Angeles and spends a lot of time thinking about weird movies I saw years ago. This site is my collection of videos that I make as a weird side hobby, just because I think they’re neat. 

Here’s how you can contact me online or check out other things I have done.

I'm probably other places too. Make a game out of it! See where you can find me online! 

Phanto Films isn't so much a business as it is just a way for me to group all my weird video projects in one place should anyone see one, think it’s cool and want to see more.

I don’t really know what I'm doing.
