Hey there! I'm Josh Northeast. Born in Geelong, Victoria, I found my home and heart in Murwillumbah, in the beautiful Northern Rivers of NSW. Ever since I could hold a camera, I was hooked. Picture a young kid making short films, enlisting my sisters and mates as the stars. It was the best way to learn the art of cinematography.
Before diving headfirst into running Jnortheast Films, I cut my teeth in the Visual Effects industry for three years, where I was working on big screen productions and streaming hits for Netflix, Stan, and Foxtel. But, there was always that itch to do my own thing. So, I finally took the plunge and made my side hustle my full-time gig.
Today, I get to do what I love every day: helping businesses — big and small, in the Northern Rivers and Gold Coast areas — tell their stories through the lens. Trust me when I say that a well-made video can work wonders for your brand. It's not just about stunning visuals; it's about solving problems you might not even realise you have.
So, how do we kick things off? With a good old chat with some coffee and notepad. I want to get to know your business inside and out: what makes it tick, what drives you, who your target customers are and what you're hoping to achieve. Once we've laid that groundwork, we roll up our sleeves and get to crafting that script and storyboard, ticking off all the boxes on your dream shot list.
Logistics? Talent? Locations? Consider it sorted. I handle the nitty-gritty of pre-production right through to the finishing touches of post-production. That includes editing, animating, and finding the perfect music and sound effects. Most of the time, it's a one-man show, but I bring in extra troops when needed. This approach makes Jnortheast Films not just high-quality, but also the most pocket-friendly video production solution for your business in the Northern Rivers and the Gold Coast, guaranteed.
Above all else, what I cherish most are the genuine relationships I form with my clients. To me, you're more than just a client; you're a mate. This camaraderie not only makes for a smooth project but makes each shoot a day I look forward to.
In September 2023, I was awarded the "Outstanding Young Business Leader" by Mayor Chris Cherry at both the Tweed Regional and Northern Rivers Business Awards. I really don't have the words to articulate how much this meant to me. I put a lot of hard work into what I do, and it feels great to be recognised for it!
So, let's not just work together — let's create something awesome. Give us a ring and let's get started today.
