Vanessa Phoenix Productions is a Los Angeles-based television, film, digital media, and music production company on a mission to inspire humanity to take flight! We wish to serve our global community by awakening the highest potential in all of us and advancing the evolution of human consciousness with thought-provoking and catalyzing entertainment.
Our vision is to be a leading supplier of ground-breaking media that entertains, enlivens conversation on pivotal topics, promotes personal growth and community, and sparks positive change.
Our Motto - Ashes to Wings -
Vanessa Phoenix Productions was inspired by the mythological phoenix. This legendary splendid bird spontaneously bursts into flame at the end of its life cycle and is reborn, out of its own ashes, to live and fly anew. Likewise, humanity is at a critical evolutionary phase and it’s time for our collective illusions, false understandings and destructive behaviors to come to their end.
VPP entertainment serves as a social catalyst, impelling us to rise from our ashes and begin a new cycle as a more highly-evolved species, more fully conscious of our true divine nature, so that we may experience all the joy, love, peace, and harmony that is available to us in the here and now.

About Vanessa Phoenix
Vanessa keeps one foot in the creative arts and the other, in the healing arts, a combination that deeply influences her creations. She earned a B.A. in Theater & Dance from the Liberal Arts School of Colorado College, where she also studied psychology and women’s studies. She later studied Vocal Performance and Songwriting at Berklee College of Music, and she earned her Certification as a Whole Health Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Vanessa’s production career began in her youth. As a child she produced, performed, and directed friends in live music and theatrical performances, with neighbors paying admission to see her shows. As a young-entrepreneur, she also ran her own dance school, a cake business, and sold her own handmade jewelry and potholders door-to-door. Today, Vanessa is the founder, executive producer, writer, director, and editor for Vanessa Phoenix Productions.
After graduating from Colorado College, Vanessa was the director of children’s television show, Rock ‘N’ Romp, which aired on DC-TV in Denver. Next, she later became the creative director/project manager for Denver multi-media production company, Ice Palace Productions, and later an associate producer/writer for the Media Underground production company in Las Vegas.
Vanessa Phoenix is wildly excited about bringing her two favorite passions—the creative and healing arts—to mainstream media by producing entertainment that inspires growth, healing and the expansion of human consciousness..
