    About me

    JOSH VESELKA is an award-winning documentary and factual producer/director and development creative with more than 20 years of industry experience.

    With a passion for and background heavy in current affairs and human interest programming, having covered a wide range of issues from AIDS, war, slavery, refugees, homelessness, natural disasters, the environment, immigration, poverty, persecution, and prisons among many others.

    And recognizing that not all programming needs to be somber in topic to engage and inspire he has also directed lighter and somewhat more constructed fare - a youth adventure trip to the Amazon rain forest, a safari in Kenya, river rafting down the Grand Canyon, experiencing a wild west dude ranch as well as profiling various young artists, athletes, dancers, orators, activists and the occasional celebrity along the way.

    Comfortable and confident working in almost any environment with extensive international production experience having produced and directed documentaries in the UK, Switzerland, Cuba, Mexico, Jordan, Ghana, Japan, Haiti, India, South Africa, Kenya, The Peruvian Amazon, Israel (including the Gaza Strip & the West Bank), Afghanistan and extensively throughout the US.

    Among other awards, Veselka is a two-time Emmy winning, six-time Emmy nominated television producer.
