Josh Chesler


Culver City, CA, USA


I'm writer, director, and producer with years of experience working on everything from features to commercials to short films and music videos. A Los Angeles native, I received my undergraduate degree in Film Production at USC School of Cinema-Television. I most recently wrote and executive-produced the Tim Meadows/Frances Conroy-starring 2015 film Chasing Ghosts (Point Zero Seven Productions/Dahlia Street Films) which was released internationally across DVD and VOD platforms. In addition, I've conceived and directed numerous music videos and commercials with major production houses Motion Theory, Superfad, and Troika, including writing award- winning video treatments for artists including Beck, Matisyahu, Modest Mouse, Adele, Green Day, and Katy Perry, as well as commercials including HP’s iconic “Hands” campaign and the viral video success “Wiley vs. Rhodes,” which I also directed. Currently, I live in Culver City with his wife and two young boys. I recently signed with a manager for lit representation, and am in the process of taking out an hourlong drama series I created. I'm looking to work actively in both TV and film, telling relevant stories about the human capacity to change.
