I’m James, I make films about amazing people with extraordinary stories.
I shoot my own films and try to explore each new world I venture into with an open mind, following people through their own experiences of life. Filmmaking is a dialogue, you have to journey with characters to capture their stories honestly.
My film Trust Me, I'm a Robot follows a robotics inventor and his creative team of artists, designers and engineers. They build a new kind of robot based on the same principles of movement that Pixar and Disney use, and try to find out what it means to be human, by looking at what makes us behave and move the way we do.
I have just completed a 90 minute film about heart transplant for BBC Two and I'm currently working on an access based obs doc about Facebook.
