Despite never actually letting go of his dream of being an astronaut, Maxwell studied Finance at Indiana University, where he produced a feature-length comedy. After becoming an “adult”, Maxwell began his career working at WME before departing to pursue other endeavors. Maxwell has since produced a number of projects, including an insane television pilot starring cult film icon Tommy Wiseau, before giving birth to CNCNTRTE in April 2011 with Josh Shadid.
Following his studies at Brooks Institute, Josh worked as a Junior Compositor at Flash Film Works before leaving to pursue architecture photography. This pales in comparison, however, to Josh’s biggest accomplishment to date: having watched all three Stargate films, all ten seasons of Stargate SG-1, all five seasons of Stargate Atlantis, and both seasons of Stargate Universe.
