From an early age Jamie has loved watching films and movies and today turns his incredible drive and ambition to making them. He says “I remember my parents taking me to the pictures to watch Star Wars - Return of the Jedi in around 1983. Not only have I been a huge Star Wars fan since, I was hooked on the movies, the smell, the ice cream lady, the pop corn, the darkness, the fire exit lights, the atmosphere”. With working in the construction industry for 20 plus years he has vast experience in project management in the Railway Industry and has constructed some major projects such as Stafford Resignalling, Lichfield Resignalling and Electrification, Rugby Resignalling, Milton Keynes, Thameslink Resignalling (Blackfriars London) and London Bridge and Reading Station! Huge jobs with multi-million pound budgets.
With his background in management and stills photography Jamie eased into producing, directing and cinematography. “It seems that all my skills acquired from an extensive history in business and creativity have all come together at the right time. My ambition is to bring back the movie atmosphere of old times, where people fell in love with the characters and felt emotionally attached, to them and the story. I feel for the first time in years Director Gareth Edwards achieved this in Star Wars Rogue One. This is the way movies should be made and a bench mark for my new career for the next 20 years!”
Jamie is currently directing and lighting his new film “Principle Deception”. Based on a story written by himself and his business partner Andy Lee, the film plays homage to Women SOE Agents of WW2. The following trailer was created in just a day for audition purposes.
With Hollywood, LA, Monster Creator Mike Hill, responsible for bringing Jamie’s vision to life, EVIE is a horror movie currently under construction. “The movie will bring some demons from my past to life and take people on a mental health nightmare!”
