Joshua Samson Bio


I am a St. Louis transplant to Salt Lake City, UT. My path into film work began through acting at a young age and I started making my own, albeit terrible, films when I was 12. I have always experimented with all forms of film making in every genre and from every perspective.

I earned a Bachelors of Science in Mass Media Studies with an emphasis in Film from Missouri State University in 2004 and a Masters of Fine Arts in Film Studies from the University of Utah in 2008.

I have many film credits to my name as a writer, producer, director, cinematographer/videographer, and editor. I also foray into production design, especially sets and costumes, animation, and occasionally puppetry. Here is a link to my creative endeavors website:

I have been working as a freelance filmmaker in documentary, fiction, and marketing since 2005 and have created pieces for clients such as the YWCA, Easter Seals, and various local businesses and individuals.
