MISSION: Uranium City Films was founded in the Summer of 2007 to bring the New Stories of The New Century to life and return story and the craft of storytelling to the forefront of filmmaking.
BIOGRAPHY: Joseph Johnston made his first movie at the age of 11, an industrial espionage thriller that continues to play to excited crowds in his mother's living room every Christmas. In 1996 he was nominated for the Irene Ryan Acting Award from the Kennedy Center for The Performing Arts/American College Theatre Festival. He earned a Bachelor's Degree with Departmental Honors in Theatre from Alma College in 1997. After spending a decade forming an independent record label as an outlet for his avant-blues recordings, experimenting with lost and found sound and starting a family, he founded Uranium City Films in 2007. Both as a one-man-band and with fruitful collaborations with American Firelight, Ring of Fire Entertainment and the newly formed Johnston Bros. Pictures, he continues his pursuit of a new wave in motion picture storytelling. He is an active contributor to and volunteers as a moderator for IndieTalk.com, the web's preeminent independent filmmaking forum.
