Meet the Phantods (rock-umentary)[edit]

In the early autumn of 2010, Phil Garrett came up with the idea of doing a feature documentary on the Columbus-based rock band the Phantods. John Whitney quickly came on board with the idea. The film has been in production since and is slated to be completed in late spring of 2011.[needs update] The film follows the Phantods through rehearsals and shows as they prepare for their first major CD release, opening for a national act. John Whitney is directing. The Whitney-Garrett duo are writing and producing the film together. Additional team members include co-producers Chip Kocel and Gil Whitney, who are also helping to shoot the documentary. The movie was released in 2012.[1]


In 2009 and 2010, Arbor Avenue Films produced the short film Eroded. The film was shot over hour days in the winter of 2009–2010 using the RED ONE camera. Post-production was completed in 2010.

Measured Sacrifice[edit]

In 2009, Arbor Avenue Films completed the film Measured Sacrifice, which went on to play at many festivals where it received a number of awards.[citation needed] Directed by John Whitney and produced by Phil Garrett, the film is a low-tech science fiction film that follows the story of a young woman named Terry who faces a desperate situation and an impossible decision in a dystopian future America embroiled in an unending "war on terror", and concerns itself with how human beings deal with the fallout of conditions (out of their control) that affect them in many ways.
