Kennedy Phillips

Sound Designer/Editor & Podcaster, Magus Elgar & Clutch
Kennedy has always adhered to a higher standard of nonsense and tomfoolery. Just because you have something ridiculous or silly to present to the world doesn't mean the execution can be anything but professional. Kennedy has worked for over 10 years on set and off bringing life (or at least some shambling monstrosity resembling it) to whatever production he has been attached to. Sound designing hit series like Hazbin Hotel, and Helluva Boss, and earning accolades for his work on The Sojourn Audio Drama, Magus Elgar and more. He has an M.F.A. in Film Production from Chapman University, and I have an B.F.A in Cinema Studies with a Minor in Creative Writing from the University of Central Florida.  Kennedy has worked with companies such as DreamworksTV, the Jim Henson Company, Ubisoft, and Melodygun. Now he regularly produces audio dramas, develop podcasts with his trademark “Gale Dramatis” Magic!
