Joe Mackedanz is a filmmaker and graphic designer from suburbia Minnesota. After finishing his masters at Chapman University, he spent a year and a half as a staff coordinator, working directly with clients and agencies while also designing and writing treatments for pitches. When not sitting behind a computer he usually can be found taking polaroids of his friends and family, reading some obscure film history book, listening to an upcoming emo band from Philadelphia, drinking a hazy IPA from a local brewery, or desperately trying to stay consistent with his plus-18 handicap on the golf course. His three muses are Alexander Payne, David Fincher and most of all Justin Vernon. He resides in Marina del Rey, California.
