 Josh Weber grew up in Bridgewater, South Dakota and is a multi-genre enthusiast. He prefers the “teach yourself” method and, as such, constantly and continuously studies and researches many broad topics of expertise (or fun) striving to become better at everything he does: astronomy, acting, photography, blogging (it’s a work in progress), directing, producing (ultra-micro-low budget producing) and many other titles within the arts (basically, anything to fill his time.) Josh won five awards from the Cedar Rapids, IA Film Festival for his short film, “Pill.” (so far, the best thing he’s created out of everything he’s made.) He has also directed and/or acted(“acted”) within the Des Moines 48 Hour Film Project for the last five years (or is it 6?) His ultimate dream is to do what he loves and be financially independent (filthy rich so he doesn’t have to think about financial independence) to take the best possible care of his friends (enemies) and family (enemies.) He currently resides in Story City, Iowa and when he’s not working (slaving away for all eternity) he continues to improve (slightly) every aspect of his life.
