James decided to dedicate his life to filmmaking at an early age 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.

James believes that the purpose of film and TV is to inspire change, deep thought, or just to escape from the mundane aspects of day to day life - and is hungry to expand his knowledge base, improve, and further his skills in order to contribute to this form of modern-day escapism.
