Director Biography - Maddox Joseph

Maddox grew up playing with video cameras, playing music and was classically trained on piano. Editing deck to deck with ancient VHS players hooked up with twisted dusty RCA cables, stop motion attempts and experimentation, and in camera effects. At a young age Maddox discovered ways to manipulate media and studied the old timey approaches of Hollywood films. A bit of a recluse, lost in the arts of telling stories through many types of mediums, even as the world moves into digital content creation, Maddox will try to champion old-school methods where possible. Film. What a beautiful medium. Maddox's first real credited short film was shot on Super 16 Kodak film stock. Maddox is already planning the next shorts and beginning casting process around the holiday season.

Director Statement

Shooting film is a luxury I was afforded on this. Also blessed with an orchestra playing our music written by our talented composer. This is my first out in the world official short film. I've been making many things I've shown to friends in private over the years. Ready to start sharing with the world.
