James brings a subtle, nuanced and wise beyond his years approach to directing; he understands the power of narrative. A very cinematic storyteller, James is not afraid of holding on the moment and exploring the smaller narratives, which feel inexplicably big.
His work includes directing primetime television comedy for BBC3, commercials for Disney, King, Sony Playstation and Paramount Pictures. Music videos, which have showcased at SXSW and Ciclope Festival of Craft, short films backed by UK Film Council, EM Media, Wellington Films, and Creative England, which have played theatrically and at festivals the world over, and branded content for the likes of Microsoft, Mitchum, Hackett, RS Components, The Co-Op, City & Guilds.
He writes scripts, treatments / decks, and has worked in a creative capacity on the majority of his projects at the ideas stage, has experience pitching directly to clients, and working within an agency environment.
