He sounds like an interesting bloke.
Well, Park Village’s new arrival has plenty to say about his craft: “The best art shouldn’t serve the artist or the brand: it should serve the subject or the story or the people”.
His thoughtful ethos draws clients seeking a meaningful outcome. When Guinness asked Johnson to shoot a ‘Made of More’ story, he chose a Brixton laundrette and its community-minded owner.
That’ll help business, no end. Johnson enjoys showcasing hidden stories and characters. This short film charts the highs and lows of community gridiron in New York’s toughest neighbourhoods. Johnson’s inquisitive nature paid off with this redemptive profile of coach Paul ‘Pamz’ Rivera.
Anything else you’d like to show us? Johnson always seeks challenging subject matter. In 2016, he visited the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. Scored by Foreign Fields’s ‘Hope Inside the Fire’, it’s a raw look at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s ongoing protest against industrial muscle.
Violent skirmishes are contrasted with moments of peaceful beauty and human fortitude. Shot with a documentarian’s eye, the promo cemented Park Village’s interest. Now they’re ready to watch Johnson’s reel grow.
