We are pleased to introduce Josiah McMiller, the newest member of our SOURCE RW team! Josiah is our Multimedia Intern and will be helping to build up our social media presence as well as designing marketing material (brochures, banners, pamphlets, fliers etc.).
Josiah obtained his Bachelor’s Degree from Ball State University in Telecommunications with a concentration in video production and media. He is continuing his education and will complete his master’s degree in Media Arts and Sciences from the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI, fairly soon. During that time, he has earned a position at IUPUI working as a Research Assistant; which he feels very privileged to have obtained. His job involves conducting research on new emerging forms of media as well as assisting in the Professor’s lesson plan.
Josiah also worked as a graphic designer for the Indianapolis Recorder and he even had one of his comic strips picked up for syndication in the local newspaper. Last year, he released a new film, “Seeking Counsel”, that premiered at the Indianapolis Black Expo.
Josiah enjoys spending his time going to the movies and hanging out with his friends. He is currently in the process of developing his own movie for an upcoming film festival. We tried to pry some more details out of him, but he is keeping it top secret. We can’t wait to watch it. Josiah has proven to have an amazing eye, so we have high expectations. “Film is a passion of mine,” Josiah told us. “I guess that’s why I got involved with multimedia and graphic design. They go hand-in-hand.”
“I was contacted by my advisor that there was a potential opening at SOURCE River West that she thought I would be perfect for. I was excited for the opportunity, because I knew the job would allow me to utilize my skills to their full extent,” said Josiah. “SOURCE River West provides an excellent service. They help communities in need of economic empowerment. I think that’s great. I actually have family who lives in this area. If any of the work I do here pays off, then I will feel like I am truly contributed to my community.”
Josiah believes this job will allow him to connect with his community and truly make a difference in Indianapolis, and is truly happy to be a part of the SOURCE RW team.
