With a strong sense of genre and a natural ability for storytelling, James has been writing spec elevated-genre scripts which have attracted local and international attention for the past several years. His conceptual sci-fi script Solitary progressed to the Quarterfinals Round of the 2011 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting, the Fellowship run by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. It was also one of only seven projects selected to be presented at the 2011 Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) conference. The script has been optioned by Porchlight Films and has secured an international sales agent in Arclight. Production will commence in 2015/2016.
James had another script selected for the Nicholl Fellowship, sci-fi/action Harvester, which went through to the Semifinals in 2012. James is currently developing the period horror Hamelin and the sci-fi/thrillers Coercion and Code. He is developing original projects with Porchlight and Hopscotch/eOne.
James’ short film Shift, which he wrote, directed and produced, was invited to screen at a number of film festivals worldwide including Cinequest, Boston Science Fiction Film Festival and Irvine International Film Festival. A feature version of the short is currently in development.
