Hey, my name is Josh Northeast. I'm 21 years old, born in Geelong VIC, been living in Murwillumbah NSW since 2004. I've been obsessed with film making since 2010 when I worked out I could copy videos off my mum's old camrea to the computer and edit them with Windows Movie Maker! 10 years later, I'm now a freelance videographger running my own video buisness working with realestate agencies, couples getting married, muisicians, dance companies and visual effects studios to name a few. My passion and perfectionism can be seen through the work I have produced over the years. I love learning new things and love working in multiple different industries to keep things fresh.
In Year 12 I came 5th in the state in the 2016 HSC for my Multimedia short film major work receiving 99%. Following that my school asked if I'd work with them for a year as a Teachers Aide in the Mulitmedia and Learning Support departments. In 2018 I began working at Cumulus Visual Effects, a visual effects studio in Byron Bay NSW. in 2020 I left Cumulus to pursue full time freelance videography and try my luck at running my own buisness.
My passion for videography has driven me to working in many different areas in the industry. Wedding videography is something I've been doing since high school where I filmed 3 of my teachers weddings. Since then I've filmed around 5-8 weddings a year. I love working with fun couples to capture their day and create a way for them to relive their memories.
Since high school, I've filmed the end-of-year dance performances for two local dance companies. During school I would always volunteer to film the musicals and assemblies and promotional videos and anything that involved me filming. This started my journey in event videography.
Since 2019 I've been getting involved in realestate videography with a few local realestate agents. I'm really keen to expand my services to multiple realestate agencies in the area.
Since primary school I've filmed multiple music videos with my sisters and friends and local bands. Working with artists to create a cinematic companion to their music is one of my favourite things to do.
When i'm not working with a camera, I have a passion for visual effects and motion graphics. I'm a nerd through and through and love working with computers to create cool visuals. I've been lucky enough to work on some awesome films, tv shows and documentries for Netflix and Stan and many independent Australian filmmakers. I've been the on-set visual effects supervisor and assistant visual effects supervisor on 4 films working with Cumulus VFX. I've created promotional videos for musical festivals like Slendour in the Grass and bands like Dune Rats.
I've been using the Lumix GH5 as my main camera since 2017. It's by far my favourite camera. As my secondary I use a Lumix GH4. In the past I've used all canon cameras, a Canon 5Dmkii and a Canon 60D. I have a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone to get stunning aerial shots, and a DJI Ronin S to stabilize my cameras and get silky smooth footage. I edit and grade in Davinci Resolve.
