Ask any professional in the world of television and film and they will confirm that good writing is the axle upon which every other part of the process turns. Good writing, or the lack of it, can inspire or impede great moments from an actor, director, cinematographer, and all those involved in a production. Joshua Powell has been immersed in the world of writing for years, since he first worked as a P.A. on a Marvel film. Seeing the magic and excitement of the crew and the cast, prompted him to finally embark upon a dream he’d never dared to start. Years later, he has written for productions starring such acclaimed actors as Friends star (and Primetime Emmy Award–winner) Lisa Kudrow, Linda Hamilton (the legendary Sarah Connors of the Terminator trilogy), and others. Rebuking the limelight for the more solitary vocation of a writer has not only been fulfilling for Mr. Powell but has continued to cultivate a long list of admirers in the production world. 

  “I would say that my strengths as a writer lie in my creativity, passion, and ability to connect with readers on a deep and meaningful level. I have a keen eye for detail, and a strong sense of observation, which allows me to craft unique characters and compelling stories that resonate with readers. I am always striving to improve and evolve as a writer, and I believe that my best work is yet to come.” conveys Powell. Success comes with the awareness that his work could lead to the next generation of filmmakers following in his footsteps. He communicates, “I still clearly recall that first experience so many years ago, the sense of excitement and energy and being part of such a large collaborative effort. That moment is what inspired my current path, and every creative and professional opportunity began with being exposed to it. The awareness that I might be able to encourage someone to invest in their own creative dream; it’s a part of what continues to encourage me in my own work.”

  Those who read his work and view the films he has written can attest to Mr. Powell’s astonishing creativity. The characters he creates are multidimensional, as are the storylines. He seems to possesses an uncanny ability to relate complex ideas with a command of language which is most relatable. Much of his work is imbued with such detail that multiple viewings offers insight into the characters and their motivations. From the chaotic couple of Jack McGurn & Louise Rolfe (Jack and Lou: A Gangster Love Story) to the tenderness of a young girl named Maggie experiencing an old toy coming to life (Coming Home), Joshua taps into the essence of these varied personalities with authenticity. A native of the UK, Powell sees a plethora of tales in the American tapestry which are ripe for harvesting. He declares, “The United States offers a vast and diverse landscape for storytelling, with countless stories waiting to be told across a wide range of genres and formats. I am excited to bring my own unique voice and vision to this rich and dynamic cultural landscape. As a filmmaker, I am drawn to the energy and creativity of this industry, and I believe that the opportunities for growth and advancement are unparalleled.”

  Writing is the oldest form of entertainment. From the time of cavemen to present-day, those like Joshua Powell have been the only universal and essential component of this. No matter what your personal favorite type of story is, there is a writer who was so talented that they were able to capture your imagination and set you on a journey that you still hold onto. Joshua Powell speaks with reverence about the art of writing because like us, he was inspired by it and took up the mantle.
