Joe Sill is a young visionary filmmaker who recently completed post production on his first feature film, STRAY, produced by Diablo Entertainment (SLEIGHT) and based on one of Joe’s original ideas. STRAY can be described as a supernatural noir thriller in the tone of SE7EN but inspired by Japanese anime.
Joe jumpstarted his career through his viral spec commercial “Tesla - Modern Spaceship", which he wrote and directed. This commercial garnered the attention of Tesla Motors and Elon Musk, Business Insider, USA Today, AdWeek, AdAge, as well as numerous other brands and advertising agencies. In 2015 Joe was acknowledged in the YouTube Music Awards for his imaginative and visually stunning music video for Lindsey Stirling's “Take Flight”. Joe has since directed branded short films for Apple, NASA, Nike, and EA Games to name a few. Furthermore, Joe’s short film set in the Star Wars universe, called “Kara”, was featured as a Vimeo Staff Pick, a Short of the Week, as well as on Vice, Screenrant, Nerdist, Gizmodo, Tech Times, among others.
Joe is currently working on developing new feature-length film concepts, as well as working with top artists and renowned scientists, to tell stories centered around wonder and hope. He is represented at CAA and MAGNOLIA Entertainment.
