RUSHES by Josh Becker

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008


Josh Becker has been making movies since he was a teenager. His first film was made at age thirteen, and by 9th grade he was tackling Oedipus Rex with future cult-icon Bruce Campbell. Since then he has written and directed numerous short films, four feature films, several television movies and worked on successful tv shows. RUSHES is at heart a passionate, honest and opinionated look behind the scenes of writing, producing and directing low-budget movies.

From Josh’s early days working with future Spider-Man director Sam Raimi on his original Evil Dead to his days writing and directing Xena: Warrior Princess in New Zealand and beyond, RUSHES is filled with stories.

Whether you’re a budding thespian, scriptwriter, director or you simply just love movies, you’ll find insights, frustrations and answers to your questions in the experiences Josh has enjoyed and endured in his three and a half decades of filmmaking trenches. His supporting cast in these adventures include aforementioned Sam Raimi and frequent collaborator Bruce Campbell, as well as stars small and great like Anthony Quinn, Lucy Lawless, Rob Tapert, Renee O’Connor, Gary Jones, Scott Spiegel, Joe LoDuca, Rick Sandford, Mariah Carey, Stephen Baldwin, John Cassavetes and many, many others.

“There are plenty of folks putting out filmmaking ‘theory’ books, but Josh got his know-how from over twenty-five years of being in the filmmaking trenches. I’ve worked with him during every phase of production—from generating the kernel of an idea, to putting on final touches in post-production—and he’s as committed a filmmaker as you’ll find … As a filmmaker, he favors a well-planned, fiscally responsible approach to telling stories. As a person, he’s encyclopedic, bright and brutally honest. What’s not to love?”
