Josh Bennett is the Film Director at Storm & Shelter, with 15 years experience in visual storytelling, filmmaking and production.
He started young – very young. His Grandad put a camera in his hands and told him to “just go make something”, so he spent every spare moment of his youth running around with a camera and making films with his friends. They covered pretty much every genre you could think of. Yes, they were cheesy, and yes, the visual effects were questionable, but the ideas were really ambitious.
Fuelled by his extensive back-catalogue of shit films, he got a place at the Newport Film School where he would graduate with a BA (Hons) in Documentary Film & TV.
In his 3rd year, Josh started an online music channel called BEDROOM LIVE; a concept that bred a TV pilot and went on tour around the UK, winning two Royal Television Society Awards.
Upon graduating, he went on to produce and direct the ultra-low-budget (£4k!) independent feature film, THE BETTER MAN, which went on to win the Welsh Dragon Award at the 2013 Newport International Film Festival and Best Comedy at the 2014 American Online Film Awards.
