Josh was tommyTV’s first employee. For the past four years, he’s been the team’s post-production supervisor, working on every project that comes through the door.
Josh has spent countless days (and nights!) dialing in the perfect edit. A film buff, avid reader, and staunch supporter of macaroni and cheese, everyone in the office appreciates his honest candor and forthright opinions.
We’re also deeply concerned about the lack of sunlight he gets.

Anderson is the young blood on the team. During his early teenage years, Anderson was captivated by the power of film and video to deeply impact someone’s life. He honed his skills leading up to his education at James Madison University where he incorporated collaboration and big picture-thinking.

His experience as an entrepreneur allowed him to understand the video process from idea to final delivery.

Whether he’s on Youtube, Vimeo or Snapchat, he believes that Story is King.
Making the big leap, Anderson joined our team from Virginia in early 2016 and has moved quickly to make quite the impression on tommysTV. Anderson is focused on the long-term game of becoming the best cinematographer possible.
