About Joseph

After receiving two degrees in film and television production from Chapman University and Orange Coast College, I moved to Hollywood in 2003 to work for Doggicam Systems. There I contributed to the work of Steven Spielberg, Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron, and many more top tier directors. I helped them execute their creative visions through the use of existing equipment and custom build systems for unique situations.

I also aided some of the top working Directors of Photography, including Emmanuel Lubezki and Mathew Libatique.

I directed several short films in college, winning Best Experimental Film and Best Cinematography. In 2010 I directed an energetic commercial for Monster Energy Drink, where I utilized my unique experience with specialty camera systems that I had gained through working at Doggicam Systems. It was then that I decided to pursue the opportunity to direct my first feature film, “WONDER VALLEY”, which will be released later this year.

Unique traits: I know film inside and out. I watch about five new films and some old per week. I am completed obsessed with Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese and David Lynch. I am not sure if that's a trait but I'm saying it anyway. The reason I like them so much is I believe that all three of them have change the "form" or the "medium in some way. To me this is beyond difficult and is simply an amazing achievement.
