Philip Braun III


While pursuing a print journalism degree and before stepping behind the camera, Philip wrote obituaries at The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans.

He graduated at the top of the communications school at Loyola University New Orleans but soon felt more attracted to creating stories through images. An internship at a PBS station and apprenticeship with a local director fueled Philip's interest in cinematography.

He cut his teeth on small commercial and non-profit videos before focusing on larger educational projects. I Lived on Parker Ave. is his documentary debut. Philip currently lives outside the French Quarter and enjoys exploring the historical and cultural riches of New Orleans.
