Film & Video Production
Meet Joshua and Nicholas. Also known as The Holden Brothers. Individually, they are talented script writers, directors, editors and entrepreneurs. Together they are Mishnoon, a multi-disciplinary creative force that is focused on producing high quality film and video content.
Josh and Nick grew up in the outlaw country music scene where the creative bug bit ‘em early on. You could find these two as kids lugging guitar cases around, sitting on amps in the bars and soaking up stories, somewhat unspoken roadies for talented musicians such as Stephen Bruton, Willie Nelson and family. After high school they moved from Louisiana to Austin, started playing in a band with Black Joe Lewis and subsequently pursued their education in film where they learned to transform moments and ideas into visual stories. In 2007, they launched Mishnoon with a sole focus on video & film production. The Holden Brothers have since directed hundreds of videos, written 5 feature screenplays, and premiered their first feature film, The Golden Rut, at The Austin Film Festival in 2016.
Origin of the name MISHNOON:
Majnun and Layla are the Romeo and Juliette of the Arabic and Persian culture. The story goes that when Layla died, Majnun went crazy and wandered the desert writing poetry in the sand. In Arabic, Majnun can be interpreted as ‘crazy/goofy’. Growing up in Louisiana with Lebanese roots, Josh and Nick's family would affectionately call each other ‘Majnun’ when someone was causing a ruckus. When starting their company, they used this bit of their history as the inspiration for the name Mishnoon.
