David Joshua Ford is a film and commercial director based in New York City.
His clients include Edelman, Telstra, Sony Music, National Australia Bank, NRMA, Norma Kamali, and Fashion Weeks in New York and Sydney.
Member of the Australian Director’s Guild (ADG) and a graduate of the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), David ironically didn’t have a TV set until the age of twelve. A trip to the cinema was a luxury. Born in Canberra (the little-known capital of Australia) to an English-teacher father and psychologist mother, it was literature that stirred his imagination. His desire to understand and explore the world grew through story.
To this end, David earned a bachelor’s degree in Film & Television Production from Charles Sturt University, including an international exchange scholarship to the University of Regina in Canada. With an international perspective continuing to shape his outlook and career, David produces video content for publications such as National Geographic, Fodors, Cleo, and BBC.
David currently resides in Manhattan as a director for the production company Refilmery.
