How do you break into the Film/TV and advertising industry? What skills are needed to become a director? In this talk, Josh will give an overview of the filmmaking process. He will explore the different career options available and give insight into what happens behind the scenes of a production from a director’s perspective. Josh will take students from the development stage of a project through to pre-production, production and post-production. By the end of this session students will know more about how to pitch ideas and how to communicate with cast and crew. They will understand the importance of team work and collaboration in the industry.


Josh is a Sydney-based filmmaker. He studied directing at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), graduating from a Master of Media Arts and Production. He also holds a Bachelor of Media and a Bachelor of Laws from Macquarie University. Josh was previously selected for SBS Australia’s prestigious Media Mentorship and mentored by the Head of Documentaries. He has directed TV, content, music videos and currently directs Channel 9 tech show Cybershack.
