James is a SOCIAL IMPACT STORYTELLER.
I’ve long been invested in how the systems we live in dictate the circumstances—and the historicity—of our lives. For nearly a decade, my work in documentary and in written journalism has examined how legacies are cultivated, performed, preserved, broken, and lost at the local level.
At any scale of story, I ask: What makes life valuable? Who decides whether that value will be recognized? What do the answers imply for most of us, who find ourselves on a vast page of history, unable to grasp the pencil that will etch our experiences into it or evade forces that could wipe them from the human record?
My strongest hats are:
- Producer (all-purpose, all web-based media)
- Director (documentary and non-fiction multimedia)
- Story Developer (documentary film and audio)
- Videographer (a.k.a. one-man film crew)
If you'd like to collaborate on a film or multimedia project -- or if you are a business-oriented producer looking to join a young documentary production company, then please write me a letter telling what you want to create!
JAMES IS GOOD TO HAVE ON YOUR TEAM WHEN IDEAS NEED TO GET REAL.
I've built and managed editorial teams, software development teams, consulting teams, big data infrastructure, print magazines, international online classrooms, and one hell of an animated gif library.
