As an adman and amateur filmmaker, Josh wrote, directed and produced a proof-of-concept short called KINDRED. It was 6 minutes long, but took 2.5 years to finish (lots of pro bono work!) and involved 133 people (there were a ton of VFX). Released in July 2014, at the time it was the first sci-fi to star an all-Indigenous Australian lead cast. It did the festival circuit until the end of 2015 and got into 5 shows: New Filmmakers New York, Boston Sci-Fi Film Festival, Melbourne Underground Film Festival, Sci-Fi Film Festival (Sydney) and Fantastic Planet (Sydney) - where it was nominated for Best Film.

Josh then secured KINDRED a 3-year global Distribution deal (Dec 2015 - Dec 2018) through Proven Entertainment in LA. Meanwhile - he was busy working on the bigger feature-length screenplay; and had just finished draft 4 when his wife gave birth. He realised he needed to hire a pro to continue. Luckily, he found Phil Parker - one of ISA's 'Top 25 Screenwriters to Watch' for 2018. Phil wrote 2 more drafts, the most recent of which got Semi-finalist @ BlueCat (2017), Quarter-finalist @ ScreenCraft Sci-Fi (2018), First Place @ Tribal Film Festival for scripts over 40 pages (2018), and Top 10 @ Stage32 Sci-Fi & Fantasy (2019).

Rather than make the feature-length KINDRED himself, he's looking to sell the screenplay and grab some popcorn. After all, if 6 minutes took 2.5 years, he'd be 95 when it screened - and we can't all have an innings like Stan Lee.
