Amassing 8 years of experience in filmmaking and content creation, Josiah’s keen visual sense and flair for storytelling built compelling narratives for clients to transform their business goals into a synergised consumer brand journey guided by thought-provoking content.
Josiah’s passion and drive in telling poignant stories landed him in Ngee Ann Polytechnic, School of Film & Media Studies, where he was awarded with the prestigious Ngee Ann Kongsi Gold Medal in 2008. He also graduated film school with the Lien Ying Chow scholarship, Liu Ying Soon scholarship, Shaw Foundation Gold Medal, MDA Film Prize, and Cathay Film Prize. After running a boutique media company for the next few subsequent years, he went on to pursue academic excellence during his time at Chapman University, where he graduated as the Valedictorian with a B.F.A in Creative Producing.
Josiah has also since been regarded for his creative and strategic sensibilities and has been commissioned by organisations such as the Ministry of Communications and Information, the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, The Institute of Mental Health, National Geographic Xplorer Magazines, Pangdemonium Productions, Touch Community Services, Health Promotion Board, Metro Singapore, McDonald's, ESSO Singapore, and Habitat for Humanity to create thought-provoking content.
Josiah also believes in using his talent in film and media for the benefit of others. His independent Social Initiative, While You Were Sleeping, is a project dedicated to encourage a culture of kindness amongst the University students in Singapore. The Introduction video of the social initiative also went viral on various social media platforms in a matter of hours and has since been adopted in 5 countries spanning across 3 continents.
Beyond managing the social initiative, Josiah has also given talks at TEDx Singapore, various Secondary and Tertiary Institutions, and has been featured on local media outlets including The Straits Times (ST), MyPaper, KISS 92FM, Capital 95.8FM as a social capital enthusiast and a creative problem-solver.
Josiah currently heads the film & social content department, TELLING STORIES, of award-winning advertising group, DDB Group Singapore, and has helped the agency create multiple award-winning content for good.
Oh. And he loves Chocolates, Sesame street, and Spiderman.
