Your Film Roles Cinematographer
Bio

Cinematographer specializing in narrative productions and music videos. Check out my website to see my 8k cinematography reel, my previous work, BTS, and pricing sheet

My production philosophy – When hour 16 rolls around on set, you can’t hire someone who’s going to start yelling at the PA and chuck a chair because “creative differences”. You need someone you get along with, and I strive to build a working relationship with everyone I collaborate with. The Director and DP relationship will make or break the project, and I work endlessly to make the production happen on time and under budget. I strive to be inclusive of every team member on set, from the lead stylist to the production assistant. I worked at a fast-food restaurant for three days and left it to work full time in film. I didn’t leave that to work on sets without comradery as a unit. I know when to be professional, but I also like to keep things light-hearted when appropriate.

We’re creating art.

That should be a great experience for every crew member.

First Name Josh
Last Name McCausland
Your Film Roles Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Sound, Editing, Musician, Television, Feature Films
Bio

Josh McCausland’s work approaches visual reality from its own unique angle.

As both a videographer and graphic designer, Josh is comfortable reconciling the real with the imagined, and it shows in what he creates. His work is refreshing, and exhibits a cleanliness that is never too removed from humanity.

Healing plays a large part in creation for Josh as “an outward expression for internal struggles.” Art is his way of continuing to exist “as a child in the living room sketching on the floor, with no restrictions and no worries.”

It is this feeling of freedom that Josh’s work truly captures, allowing everyone who interacts with it a much-needed moment of peace in its simple beauty and effortless elegance.

In his pursuits, Josh has completed a BFA at Cumberland University with a major in Entertainment Design and a minor in film studies. He developed his own film company, iQ Flicks during college and now maintains his small business while working full-time for Relativity creating in house video work.
