MotoVike Films uncovers the unseen truth in your story to shift perspective and create an emotional pull. Through cinematic storytelling, we turn a mirror to the viewer, allowing them to see themselves in the story.
We are purveyors of everyday magic. But, not the kind that requires studio effects or stuntmen. Our brand of magic is tangible and approachable. It appears when you change perspective and approach a subject in a way that uncovers the truth that was there all along.
WE BELIEVE EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL. WE WOULD BE HONORED TO TELL YOURS.

Josiah yearns to capture the emotion and detail of your ideas on film and give you an unforgettable visual experience. His personality can captivate a room, but can make an individual feel at ease, even with a camera on them. Josiah lives in Topeka, KS with his wife, son, and their three daughters. He enjoys frequenting the wilds of Colorado, fly fishing, and cruising downtown Topeka on two wheels.
