film student at:
Brigham Young University
Josh Contor loves telling stories. He wrote his first play in 2nd grade, a Musical Western (and was patiently told that having the sheriff get killed by a train at the end was “anti-climactic”), cast the entire class, and staged a bank robbery complete with grease-pencil mustaches and cap-guns. Years later, his ever-patient parents got him up a Hi8 camera and an iMac, and Josh was hooked on making movies.
In high school, Josh spent the weekends shooting low-budget epics and gangster movies with his friends. Josh is a Kiwanis Teen Film Festival alumni, having been awarded Best Drama, Honorable Mention, Best Short Subject, Best Sports, and Best Documentary. Currently, he is Majoring in Film Production at BYU, Minoring in Business and looking forward to a career in filmmaking. He has worked for KIDK TV 3, KIFI TV 8, ESPN, BYU-TV, and CNN.
