Shooting fashion and fine art photography caught the eye of the publishers of Playboy magazine and he was brought on as photographer for a number of years. This experience fine tuned Jim's, lighting skills and he merged his styles which made for a career as a thriving advertising, fashion, beauty, shooter published in Elle, Vogue, etc..
Jim shot his first music video in ’94 on 16 mm, he directed shot, and editing, learning as he went…He shot a short about a year later called “Georgina Blumes Nightmare” starring Melissa Mcbride” of Walking Dead fame..also on 16mm film… Jims still work is very cinematic as a consequence… as luck (and location) would have it, his still career blossomed from Miami and Atlanta… with an occasional music video, or industrial or motion beauty imagery gig along the way… Jim has made it has business to control all aspects of his projects.. a photoshop master jumping on the digital bandwagon in it’s fledgeling beginnings… he studied and continued to excel as an film editor and special effects artist both digital and mechanical.. Jim’s engineering background has come in handy here and Jim has a machine shop in his studio… as well as a recording studio.. Jim spends a lot of time, studying and continues to develop new ways to take advantage of the latest tech available.. 3 years ago, Jim decided the time was right to shift his focus toward the motion end of things with the coming of large sensor digital motion cameras. Having a collection of partially written scripts and ideas tucked away, the time was right to shoot a “full on feature film”… He stumbled on the story of “The Young Brothers Massacre” and studied and researched the topic and wrote the screenplay “Come On In We’re Dead” “The Young Brothers Massacre”…. The first filming started principal photography a year and a half ago on a shoestring budget, Jim, directed, DP’d edited and did special effects.…. the trailer can be seen http://www.comeoninweredead.com …. This project caught the attention of investors and other people from the industry and it was decided that the project was worthy of a decent budget and pre production is in progress now, for a fresh start of the film, with some A list talent. Jim has 3 years of his life invested dedicated to bringing this amazing story to the screen… along with help from a talented group of filmmakers at his side….
