Director Biography - André Campbell - Movie Director, Phillip E. Walker - Kindness Activity Guide Creator

Mr. Campbell grew up in the Bronx in New York City, where he always had an interest in moving pictures. As a producer on his first film, "7:35", Mr. Campbell caught the bug and after that decided to produce and direct. He started off with “Two Blues” and then “Trust” where he won his first directing award. He followed that up with “Whaaat?”, “Future Killer”, “DangerMan”, “Frozen Voltage”, “Oops!”, “Lew's Up First” and “Twinkies & Root Beer.” His work today consists of films, documentaries, commercials, and music videos. He has over a dozen awards for his Producing and Directing. When not filmmaking, he’s taken the time to author several books on filmmaking, which can be found on Amazon, as well teaching film at Los Angeles Community College. For relaxing you can find him flying his quadcopters and keeping them away from tall trees that seem to have a magnetic effect. He still stands behind his old school motto, "Learn by doing.”
