Prince N. Joe’s inspirational journey from the hard life and streets of Liberia and Ivory Coast. Born into poverty and and survived 14 years of civil war from Liberia. He escapes with his family and went to Ivory Coast as a Refugee and survived another civil war. He got an opportunity to travel to Norway with his three sisters through UNHCR with the help of the norwegian government from Ghana.

Prince has worked on some great student film projects which have been sent out to some film festivals in Norway and international. In 2013 he also collaborated

It was a simple piece of advice from his Mother and Father that set Prince career in filmmaking. Encouraged to keep a diary of his daily thoughts and experiences, he began writing a series of letters to himself, friends and family. The letters, full of pain and in time, forgiveness of what he has been through and see other people been through and still going through.
During his academy year at Noroff he founded New Visionsgate Film Production company and started promoting it among his friends and family both at school and outside of school. After his graduation from Noroff 2014, he registered New Visionsgate Film Production company at Brønnøysund to give the company the lagel right to enter into Film Production.
I just get done shooting a short Film called "INSEPARABLE" which in post production right now, and I am working on another short film which in development now. My dream is to tell stories I care about and connect with filmmakers around the world.
