James Sarson

I’m James. A compositor interested in the invisible effects created for films and TV today. Being able to fool the eye is my passion and I really enjoy creating work that no-one notices.

I also enjoy working with directors/filmmakers to achieve their vision and expand their creativity by expanding the world they are trying to create.

This year my main project had been ‘Yellow Jacket’; a Mockumentary about a man who has ended up with a severe deformity meaning his head is that of a wasp. He lives a fairly normal life from an outside view but as the crew start to spend time with him at home, weird things start to occur. Other than that I have been working with a director on FMIP to re-build a castle and gatehouse for his medieval short film.
