Directing duo Alisa Allapach and Phillip Montgomery are “Call Me Al” which – fun fact – is inspired by Alisa’s father, Al, who’s bare-knuckle grit and resourcefulness are the stuff of legend. That and they also think Paul Simon is a genius. As filmmakers, they have extensive experience both in front and behind the camera. Their first co-directing effort, “The Things I Miss” for Instagram’s pandemic era stay-at-home campaign became a viral hit, and their more recent collaborations push them further into beautiful, fresh visuals with an eye towards positivity and uplifting performances. Combined, their directing efforts have resulted in award-winning work for Google, Uber, IBM, and more.
