Josh Wein is a professional video journalist with 6 years of experience and 3 awards in the field. While pursuing a BFA for film directing at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, Josh has been producing content for Verizon FIOS TV Show, “My Long Island TV.” Upon graduating in 2014, Josh has remained a loyal employee of the company and produces content for clients & friends for their personal or promotional use.
His passion for content creation started in 4th grade when he self-produced his original magazine “Heat Zone” and sold it on the playground at recess. His love for filmmaking started in 2002 when he purchased his first video camera. From this, he wrote, directed and edited “Hz Studios” shorts with his friends.
Since then, Josh has gone on to create multiple home-movies, his first big production being the Michael Jackson inspired short “Smooth” in 2014.
His interest in video journalism began in 2009 when he was employed by My Long Island TV. Josh began reporting on community events ranging from fashion, food, entertainment, music, celebrity, technology, health services, awareness & more.
This opportunity gave him the ability to travel, converse, film and learn from the people, events, and stories that make up Long Island’s culture and history.
Working as a one-man camera team, Josh is able to work diligently and accurately on his own – however, he thrives in community-oriented work as a true team member.
He loves video games, dance, guitars, aquatic environments, and green-energy solutions. His idols are Stephen Colbert, John Stewart, Michael Jackson & Shigeru Miyamoto. His favorite dogs are Pugs, French Bulldogs & Boston Terriers. Green is the best color, followed closely by purple, and some forms of pink.
