After graduating from The American Film Institute with an MFA in Screenwriting in 2000, Dax Phelan went to work as the Creative Executive for veteran producer Mace Neufeld at Sony Pictures Entertainment. During his 3-year tenure at Mace Neufeld Productions, Phelan worked with some of Hollywood’s finest screenwriters and directors on such projects as “The General’s Daughter,” “The Sum of All Fears,” and “Argo.” Then, in 2003, Phelan sold a screenplay of his own and worked as writer for hire for the next decade.
In 2013, Phelan returned to his independent roots, associate producing the Bret Easton Ellis-penned “The Canyons” for director Paul Schrader (“American Gigolo”). In 2014, together with Academy Award-nominee Oren Moverman (“The Messenger,” “Rampart”), Phelan executive produced Anja Marquardt’s “She’s Lost Control,” which won the CICAE Art Cinema Award and played to sold-out audiences at Berlinale, SXSW, and New Directors/New Films. The film was nominated for two Independent Spirit Awards: Best First Feature and Best Screenplay.
In 2015, Phelan wrote, produced, and directed his feature directorial debut, “Jasmine,” which premiered at the Hong Kong International Film Festival and won five awards at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, including the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature, Best Actor in a Drama, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, and Best Sound Design. He is currently adapting Neil White’s memoir, “In the Sanctuary of Outcasts,” for producer Stratton Leopold (“Mission: Impossible III”), co-producing Orson Welles’ final film, “The Other Side of the Wind,” with Frank Marshall (“The Sixth Sense”), and executive producing “Little Hard,” the directorial debut of Bel Powley (“The Diary of a Teenage Girl”).
