In James’ eyes no project is too ambitious. If a project has potential James can guarantee that he will guide it to completion using his experience as a producer from previous productions. James work mostly in film, short films, and is hungry for larger projects.

Every film, music video and commercial has one thing in common. They all aim to sell an idea or an actual product to an audience. In James’ experiences working with commercial clientele he has proven himself able to deliver a high quality media product, allowing for businesses to advertise in style, without overspending.



James believes that an incredible performance can be emphasised and nurtured with the correct, professional, video capture. Not only showcasing his ability but also promoting yours, the clients.

James decided to dedicate his life to filmmaking at an early age (17) and attended University to study Film Production at the University of Salford, based in MediaCityUK.

Through his degree and freelance work, James gained necessary experience which is invaluable such as; time management, people management, scheduling, budgeting, adhering to a client’s needs, working with kit houses, and most importantly producing an impressive final product under budget and on time.
