“Growing up we didn’t live near a movie theater. Television was my portal into the world of classic movies and television shows. All these years later, I love what I do. Wasted time in front of the tube? Hardly! It got me a full time career: first, in production. For a time, on camera. And ultimately, in post-production.”
The early days of television formed the basis of Jim’s film education. Watching TV was only the beginning. His father was a Cinematographer, an early member of the CSC, and Martin Scorsese’s film professor at NYU. Jim was introduced early on to the way movies and television shows are made.
