Josh Soskin joins Partners Film
The award-winning filmmaker and photographer signs for Canadian Representation.
Equally skilled in drama and comedy, Soskin boasts a diverse filmography encompassing short films, commercials, and photography, all marked by a distinctive blend of authenticity and artistic flair.
Originally an actor, Soskin transitioned behind the camera at the young age of 21 after experiencing hair loss due to Alopecia. Since then, he has directed commercials for renowned global brands such as Adobe, Match.com (including the scriptwriting), Ford, Amazon, Samsung, and Snickers, infusing each project with his signature cinematic style.
Gigi Realini, partner and executive producer at Partners Film, notes that Soskin possesses innate abilities in casting, performance, direction, and comedic timing, making him a natural comedy director. Additionally, he brings a highly sophisticated approach to filmmaking, firmly establishing himself in the realm of cinematic storytelling. Realini expresses excitement about Josh joining the Partners family, stating, "We are excited to have Josh join the Partners family."
Soskin's short films have earned recognition as Vimeo Staff Picks, and his 2015 drama La Carnada premiered at Tribeca and was honoured as Best of Fest at Palm Springs. Currently, he is working on his debut full-length feature, The Rooster Prince, which he describes as the Jewish equivalent of Rain Man. The inspiration for the film stems from his personal experience of losing his brother to bipolar disorder.
Beyond his filmmaking pursuits, Soskin is a dedicated surfing enthusiast, often found riding the waves when he's not behind the camera or crafting scripts. His work, The Untitled Underwear Project, characterized as "a photographic and cinematic exploration of the lives we lead in our underwear," is available in galleries worldwide. Furthermore, he indulges in collecting vintage toy cameras with great enthusiasm.
