Philip Storrs


Philip StorrsPhilip Storrs grew up in the bucolic town of Grez-Doiceau, Belgium, amidst distant church bells, long summers and otherwise temperamental weather. In 2000, he began his life in the United States when he moved to Minneapolis to study theater at Bethel University in St. Paul. There, he fell in love with theater design and never looked back.

He moved to Los Angeles in 2004 to attended graduate school at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, where in 2009, he obtained his degree in scenic design. Storrs has been sought out by companies in architecture, civil and mechanical engineering, the tech and mobile sector, and entertainment to assist with conceptualizing and visualizing their ideas. Though designer has come to mean many things, Storrs’ clean intentional aesthetic has led him to thrive across many fields. His tool bag is suited to handling machinable-ready CAD drawings, photo-realistic digital renderings, civil construction drawings and animation. Among his other accomplishments is his design of a 72’ water wheel that will be powered by the Los Angeles River when it is launched in 2016.

Storrs is best known for solving unconventional problems. He loves being in the classroom both to teach and to learn.

In addition to teaching at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, Storrs has taught design at Azusa Pacific University and The American Musical and Dramatic Academy, Hollywood. He is the married father of two young children.
