Jim believes that great filmmaking begins with a passion for great story telling. It’s starts with the writing and developing of strong scripts; while creating interesting and original characters. Bringing this all to life on screen, surrounded by a great team of people who also believe in the vision, is what Jim loves most about filmmaking. Every time we make a film we are chasing dreams. How blessed are we who get to do it.
“Your dream was given to you. If someone else can’t see it for you, that’s fine, it was given to you and not them. It’s your dream. Hold it. Nourish it. Cultivate it!”
