Joseph also had another big event in Hollywood Thursday night, premiering a feature film in Los Angeles called, "Lost and Found". Joseph wrote the film.

Joseph is a hands-on director guy and has been involved in storytelling and filmmaking for a while. When talking about virtual reality, Joseph says, "We think this is one of the most organic ways to consume media. A hundred years ago, I'm sure people were asking the same question when televisions first came out."
