Graduate 2001 Leverhulme
Born in London in 1965, I left school at sixteen, directionless
discovering the films of Robert Breer and Stan Brakhage in
'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
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.
