James is most commonly associated with the directorial success of Creative Doorway’s national and international cinematic brand commercial campaigns over the last 8 years in business, where his work with corporations grossing upwards of $20 million has rivaled marketing/production firms from top fortune 500 companies. James has competed for first place 2 years in a row, 2019 and 2020, for best brand marketing behind Hershey’s®Chocolate, best director for cinematic video, non-broadcast commercial behind Sony®Playstation, and was awarded best motion graphic designer directly behind Sony®. Accumulating award rankings above hundreds of top consumer brands like Viacom, Comcast, BBC, CBS Interactive, Cricket Wireless, and more. His camera eye and writing style are trademarks of Creative Doorway’s unique product placement, brand storytelling and silver screen production appeal.
However, outside of his signature directorial accreditations, James takes on more of a renaissance role in his workflow — and functions as the director, director of photography, creative director, cinematographer, and writer for all his film and brand campaigns, even winning at film festivals in the science fiction genre for best cinematography.
