About Jim

I have over 20 years in the Video production business. I really got the bug when I was in the US Navy and I was on leave in my home town of Seattle. I meet this clown (Yes a real Clown) and he introduced me to another local and very popular Clown from Seattle, Teeny the Clown. They had a local TV show and they had invited me to join them and be on the show. While I was not in front of the camera, I was helping behind the scenes with the Mic Boom. I was just in aw with the One Camera and that BIG OLD tape deck. Well that got me Hooked. But it wasn't until I got out of the US Navy and started college. I was taking computer maintenance & electronics and as a filler class I took the TV Studio class at the college. So I took in every show on all equipment and software that was held in the San Francisco Bay Area for the next 6 ~ 8 years. Some of my first video jobs were Weddings, Car Shows and a minor league Professional Football Team. I also was involved in producing, directing, camera & editing for a couple local TV Shows. My next big project was producing a test reel for a comedy western movie.
