Episode 39 | Phil Allocco - writer/director
Play • 52 min

My next guest is a writer director who started out life playing guitar in a heavy rock band. When that went belly up, he tried his hand at an equally tough career to crack – making films. 

His second choice seems to be working out a lot better. To date he’s picked up over 40 awards for his films and screenplays in categories such as Best Director, Best Narrative Feature, Best Short Film, Best Screenplay, Gran Jury Award, Special Jury Award and Audience Choice.

After a sometimes hair-raising spell directing reality shows, he got to direct his first feature, a comedy called The Truth About Lies, in 2015.

We’d never met before this podcast, but after just a few minutes chatting with Phil Allocco, I felt an immediate connection. In fact, we had quite a blast. Here’s that take.
