A Conversation With Todd Phillips

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • Todd Phillips
  • Elvis Mitchell

Saturday 12th March, 2011

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Director Todd Phillips has forever left his mark on comedy entertainment with his own brand of films exploring, in often outrageous ways, the nature of male relationships. With films like Old School, Starsky & Hutch, School For Scoundrels, Due Date and The Hangover, the highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time, he has worked with some of today’s most innovative and acclaimed comic actors.

He is currently in post-production on The Hangover Part II, which moves the action to Thailand. Phillips began his career as a documentary filmmaker, inspired by humor taken from everyday reality and the belief that the truth is often stranger than fiction. Join what promises to be a fascinating discussion with Phillips as he discusses his work, his career and what makes life so funny, with Elvis Mitchell.
