Who We Are

The light stays on until the project is done.

When Philip and Todd started Back Home, they had this crazy idea that if they put enough care into every project and treated the customer like, well, a customer, things would work out just fine. So far, they’ve been right. Between handling sales and creative, he can be heard quizzing the staff about movie lines. Philip also has a clock in his office that chimes in with the sound of a different John Deere vintage tractor every hour. “My favorite is the 1941. Sounds like victory. Quick: What movie is that from?

Ever since Back Home has been around, we’ve been looking for something Todd can’t do. We’ve tried editing video (his wheelhouse) developing Flash (yup) building websites (uh-huh) constructing e-Learning modules (piece o’ cake.) Don’t worry, we’ll keep trying. Bottom line: If it comes out of Back Home Productions, it has Todd’s fingerprints all over it. In his spare time (ha) Todd raises chickens. “They each have their own personalities.” We try not to egg him on.

We recruited Andrew out of LA about 4 years ago. Unbeknownst to us, he was homeless, living in his “BMW” coupe on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and 10th street. According to him, he was trying to break into the film industry. Needless to say, it didn’t work out. When we asked him, “What he thought about LA”. He replied in a misanthropic tone, “In LA, the pollution is bad, the traffic is terrible, and the people are even worse.” Thanks to us, Andrew now resides in a home, with a roof, in the City of Bulls.
