James' career perspective

'The [Media Practice] course really mapped out the basic process of filmmaking and identified the key roles of the production team. Filmmaking and working in the media are incredibly closed communities, so learning the lingo and responsibilities of each department were essential steps to get my "foot in the door."’

James has worked on feature films including Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes 2, The Iron Lady and My Week with Marilyn.
