Today we’d like to introduce you to Justin Johnson.
Justin, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started out doing videos for some buddies in high school, once I graduated I gradually started honing the craft, I later went to the Art Institute of Santa Monica where I learned the art of storytelling at least in the film format aspect. Using the tools that I gained up until this point, I went on to work for Russell Simmon’s All Def Digital where I met some wonderful people (Damien “Boomer”, Denzel “Deazy”, and Travis) that helped me immensely create the short film “Bread Hunt”. Me and Damien went on to do some Instagram sketches and we later created the YouTube Series #323theSeries.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road is never smooth with whatever you’re trying to do. In filmmaking it’s normal for things to go wrong but, you’re not supposed to focus on that, you have to be able to find the solution. But, then again, that’s with life in general.
Please tell us about Campaign Studios.
My business focus on making content for Film & Television. A heavy focus at that, our procedures, taking the extra steps, actually adapting what we learn from the sets that we work on and bringing that to our actors and our crew and applying it there. When we make our content, our intentions are to release in a theatre, not just straight to YouTube. Not to make comparisons, but like an A24 or an MGM we’re actually selling merchandise with our content. I would say that’s what makes me the most proud, our approach.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
Having my mother’s video camera and playing with my superhero action figures and re-enacting the superhero movies like; Spider-Man, The Hulk, and Fantastic 4.
