About Joseph Holmes

Behind the Scenes

Joseph Holmes was born the son of two ordained ministers. One of his favorite memories was sitting around the table with his family talking about the theology in the movies they'd just watched together. His parents instilled in him a love of stories that ask deep questions and reveal truth and beauty to the audience. It's no surprise then that Joseph Holmes grew up to love making films and talking about the deeper questions in culture and the arts.

Joseph Holmes began filmmaking while at The King's College in New York City. As a sophomore he founded the filmmaking club "King's Image Films" and gained notoriety for the short films they made together and for his film reviews on YouTube. After graduating with a degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE), Joseph began making further developing his talents and reputation as a filmmaker and culture writer. He received award nominations in festivals across the country. He started his own blog and podcast "Overthinking Films" and "The Overthinkers" and began writing for publications such as "An Unexpected Journal" and "Religion Unplugged".

Today, Joseph Holmes is still passionate about telling stories and having conversations that reveal truth and beauty to people. He is daily encouraged at the power that art and human dialogue has to make the lives of ordinary people more beautiful. And he is grateful to be a part of it.
