Jeff Philips
President/Founder 

Jeff founded In Focus Studios in 1999 primarily filming weddings. After 3 years in the business he met his mentor, a former producer of the Today Show. She showed Jeff the ins and outs of corporate video. Since then he has established the company as a versatile production facility.
A few things that may interest you about Jeff that relates to his passion for video. He grew up playing baseball, basketball, football and was a premier racquetball player for 20 years. This has helped him relate to his athletic clientele who come to him looking to play at the next level. His passion to make music videos comes from his 15 years as a drummer.
Finally, Jeff grew up in an entrepreneurial family and at the age of 9 started receiving indirect training by watching his parents as to what it was like to run a business. As a result, Jeff is very adaptable whether he is working with a business, government agency, or non-profit organization. He has helped small businesses solve budget challenges, non-profits get focused on their message and saving government agencies from near catastrophe during live events.
