ABOUT

Joseph is an award-winning director and producer of drama and comedy films. 


Some of them are even alright.


As a science student at The University of Nottingham, Joseph did everything he could to not do his boring degree, so he made a feature film called House Party Raiders (2017), a ninety-minute action-comedy.  


In a strange move, that he still doesn't understand to this day, Joseph left his science degree after being offered a job as a journalist at News UK (The Sun and The Times newspapers), then in 2018 he went on to work for The Daily Telegraph. 


During this time he learnt key skills, such as wearing a suit indoors, turning facts into fiction, and using exaggeration effectively.  


The latter two skills helped him to keep writing and making comedy-drama films. He secured funding to shoot his second comedy film: Jobit (2018), and then make a sitcom pilot #Goals (2019). In 2019, he secured funding from the NYFA to make a comedy-short On In 15 (2020), which was premiered at the BFI IMAX in February. NYFA also gave him funding to make period-drama Solvi (2020).


Joseph also partnered with London-based charity Thrive LDN to create Workshop (2019), a comedy-drama which explored four men dealing with different mental health conditions.


Currently, Joseph is overseeing post-production and promotion of his most recent films and planning ahead for next year with a number of projects in development.  


Joseph is also the co-founder of Window Zebra Productions.


KEY SKILLS: Good organisation, good at being silly as a leader or as a team member, good hair (which he gets from his mother and not his bald father).
