James’s career began in 2007, when he joined Technicolor as Sound Assistant and Foley Recordist whilst on his placement year from the University of Surrey’s Tonmeister Course. Following university he joined Boom Post Production, becoming the principal ADR Recordist on Game of Thrones and Black Sails, contributing to both of their Emmy Award winning soundtracks. As part of the re-recording team at Boom, he worked on features such as The Imitation Game and major TV series, including Neflix’s Black Mirror and the BBC’s Call the Midwife.
Having re-joined Technicolor in 2017, he continues his passion for mixing and recording ADR, working on a variety of shows and formats. Outside of work, he is an avid jazz trombonist and runs a Big Band in North London. When not performing live with his band, he loves to play table tennis and enjoy the outdoors.
