James Kennedy has been making films for over 17 years, beginning with just his family camcorder and a group of friends. He has since gone on to shoot music videos for some of the worlds biggest musicians and TV commercials for some of the largest brands. However, his goal was always to use those commercial projects as a training ground for this moment when he could put his directorial experience into action with a great script.

Having funded, written, directed and produced a feature film at the age of 21 (Dead City) he is looking to further his career in film on an international scale.
