James is a filmmaker, co-director and producer of the "Indie Game: The Movie", a documentary that follows the journeys of indie game developers as they create games and release those works, and themselves, to the world. After two successful Kickstarter funds, together with Lisanne Pajot, James interviewed prominent indie developers within the community. In the movie, Lisanne and James show game development in the "past, present and future" tenses through each individual's story.

"Indie Game: The Movie", In Conversation

With over 300 hours of footage, the movie was entirely directed, produced, shot and edited by them alone. “Indie Game: The Movie” won the World Cinema Documentary Editing Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
