Hi. I’m Josh and I’m a freelance videographer / film maker based on the Gold Coast.
I began studying a Bachelor of Film and Screen Production at Griffith Film School in 2016. Not quite knowing which discipline I wanted to double down on, I spent my first and second years trying out everything, from directing, producing, editing, sound designing, camera operating, production designing to visual effects.
In 2017 I began a production company Raincoat Productions where I produced social media video content for scale-able businesses.
Me and the other members of Raincoat Productions began to work on different projects, building a vast portfolio. We delved in short films with the 48 Hour Film Challenge (2017), produced social media content for The Ja Joint, captured the experience at a music festival “Island Vibe“, created social media TVC’s for Surfers Paradise Backpackers Resort.
In 2017, I was the editor and sound designer for a Drama Production called ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Rain‘, and won an award for the best Sound Design from the Griffith Screen Society. The film has gone on to screen at the Brisbane International Film Festival, Screen It Film Festival, Short + Sweet Queensland Film Festival (winning the Heat One People’s Choice awards), Heart of Gold International Short Film festival, West End Film Festival and Noosa International Film Festival.
I also began creating content on YouTube from late 2017 on my personal channel.
In early 2018 I began his biggest project yet, writing and directing his graduate film CTRL ALT DELETE which is due to begin it’s festival run in 2019.
From all tasting all these different aspects of film making and storytelling- upon graduating my film degree- I have found my main focus now in writing / directing and wanting to explore and learn more of my craft.
As it seemed that Raincoat Productions was catering to a different clientele and the fact that I am the only one working for the business, I changed Raincoat Productions to Josh Radford Films.
