A Conversation with Director Phil Lord

September 24, 2020 A DGA Latino Committee Virtual Event

On September 24, the Latino Committee’s (LC) meeting featured a conversation with Director Phil Lord.

Moderated by Director Jay Torres (Life), Lord discussed his collaboration with his directing/writing/producing partner Chris Miller. Their films have collectively earned over $3.3 billion at the worldwide box office and they have recently signed a deal at Sony Pictures Television to develop a suite of television series based on Sony's Marvel Characters.

Following the moderated portion of the event, he also took questions from the online audience.

Alongside Miller, Lord’s directing credits include the feature films 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street; the animated features The Lego Movie and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs; the pilot for the series Brooklyn Nine-Nine; and episodes of the series The Last Man on Earth. Lord has been a DGA member since 2011.


The Latino Committee was created as a networking group to advance career and job opportunities for Latino DGA members by improving craft skills, networking, and making Latinos better known to the Hollywood creative community. The current LC Co-Chairs are Directors Regina Ainsworth and Edward Ornelas and Second Assistant Director Alicia Zaragoza.
