Phil Bucci is a Name You Should Learn

You may not know his name (yet) but you are familiar with his work. Phil Bucci is responsible creating some of the most recognizable trailers and commercials of the past five years.

Primarily known as a “brainy jock,” Bucci was a three sport athlete who was also a member of the AV Club. After his

baseball career ended in the minor leagues due to injury, “Spare Parts Bucci,” as he was affectionately nicknamed by a fellow teammate following his several sports injuries, returned to college at the Academy of Arts in San Francisco to enter the world of film and television using those AV skills he learned in high school.

“I was always towed the line. I was in high school playing year around sports and was the AV kid, wheeling the cart around getting made fun of, but I also played football, baseball and ice hockey,” said Bucci, a New York native.

Now that Bucci has spent several years in the editing lab, he has decided to change gears and focus on directing. In his latest pet project Special Forces, Bucci has created a short film/pilot that takes place in a world where super powers are common place and sometimes not so super.

Special Forces is an action-comedy that follows two desk cops Eugene (Mort Burke) and Genesis (Tania Gunadi) who have drab powers with little use to the main task force. When a super villain bust goes wrong, the semi-super duo discover their powers are a lot more than the self-imposed limitations they have set. Now these two unlikely heroes are going to show the world what being super is all about.

“The initial thought was that it was going to be a web series, but for the level I wanted it to be, it was too expensive. I didn’t want to do visual effects that were just OK. I would still like to turn it into a web series but will eventually need some backers.  As a kid I grew up during the golden age of genre hybrids like E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future and The Goonies. Now as an adult I crave these types of films that will take you on a whirl wind adventure. I wanted to create something reminiscent of my favorites,” said Bucci.

Special Forces has been featured in Dances With Films, NYTVF, DragonCon, Hollyshorts, Other worlds Austin, Fargo Fantastic Film festival, Unreal Film Festival, Sunscreen Film Festival West, Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival.

As for what comes next, Bucci says, “I’m just getting started. I have a good footing with my base in editing. I have a great group of people around me, making for a really good collaborative crew as everybody did their jobs really well. A lot of it now is just time and money. I’m trying to get a couple of more pieces going. I got a horror short we’re working on right now with a big joke at the end and working on a couple of feature scripts.”
