James was an extremely conscientious and hard-working member of my team for over four years. He is highly creative – his showreel demonstrates his finely-honed practical skills, his individuality and sheer imagination. During his time at the Media Unit he took on every challenge with great enthusiasm and dealt extremely well with pressure. Before working for Glasgow University, I was a producer/director in BBC and ITV for over twenty years and have proven experience in identifying and recruiting young people with exceptional talent.Barbara Farmer, former employer, University of Glasgow Media Unit
I’ve worked with James on a huge variety of projects over the past few years, and I’m constantly impressed by his creative talent and professional diligence. As an editor, he has a great feel for story and tone that always brings out the best in any footage, and his great design skills have made him Production Attic’s first choice for motion graphics.Matthew Cowan, Company Director, Production Attic Ltd
James runs rings round his editing software; it’s all done with a casual confidence, and his end product leaves no room for complaint. He has a particular feel for blending music and effects. Would recommend his services to anyone.Ron Marshall, ex-BBC programme director
I’ve worked on a diverse range of projects, including drama, music promos and corporate video.
