Graduate 2001
Leverhulme Trust Scholar
Born in London in 1965, I left school at sixteen, directionless until
discovering the films of Robert Breer and Stan Brakhage in the early
'Nineties. I started working on my own film that same day. I took evening classes: Art, English Lit and Lang, did a Foundation in Documentary at Brixton College, 1992-93.  Central St Martin's, BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Film), 1993-96. After graduating, I did some 3-D model animation for pop videos and CD-Roms. After getting a call from a former tutor about the NFTS, I applied and was accepted.

The course has been invaluable in giving me the ability to research and develop ideas and an understanding of drama and mise-en-scène.  
I have also become literate in digital image technology.  Coming from a fine art background, the NFTS has given me and my work the professional dimension and direction I hoped it would.

James has recently been working for Sherbert and has completed work on the new projected adverts for Coca Cola in Picadilly Circus.
