About James

I have worked in the Film & Television industry for over 14 years. I've had much experience on Film & Television Dramas, including Last of the Summer Wine, London's Burning, Rocket Man, Doctors and Films like Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, Magicians, The Bourne Ultimatum and First Night.

I have directed a short film called 'Wheeling Dealing', which has been shown at Cannes and many other film festivals.

I have Produced and Directed Promos and commercials at Sky. Including WWF Adopt a Jaguar Commercial and Anytime+ Promos.

I have my own Mac editing kit, with FCP7, Avid Media Composer and the Adobe Production Suite.

I have a full HD shooting & lighting Kit, with the BBC approved Canon XF305 Camera.

In June 2010, I founded 'Rainbow Trout Films Ltd'. Which I use for freelancing work for other broadcasters, along with my own projects and development work.

Location wise I split my time between London & West Yorkshire, and I travel worldwide depending on the job requirements. The most unusual place I've been is Uzbekistan back in 2004, working on a low budget feature film.

Specialties: Film, TV Drama, TV Comedy, Documentaries, Promos, Corporate, Commercials.
