James Ian Gray - Everyday Is A School Day At James's Blog

My Cinematography course.

Because I didn't get into film school, and spending over 20K on a course was just slightly expensive for me I decided to create my own.

Any this is the reason for my blog and for my site.
I shall be sharing more technical information, research, experiences, mistakes that I make on my journey throughout my blog.
But not only that. Fingers crossed meeting up with fellow like-minded people and blogging about them and their experiences and knowledge.

What People Say About James?

James is brillant and an asset to The Tunnel. He's now a regular part of our team and also my go-to guy for any future jobs. Very easy to get on with and knowledgeable too which is always a bonus!

Jody VandenBurgDirector - Tunnel

James worked beyond the call of duty to ensure that I realised my vision of the screenplay. His suggestions were insightful & his skills very high. The standard he sets himself makes him an asset to any film crew. I was in safe hands & so was my project.

K R BestDirector and Writer

James is a consummate professional, committed and prepared. Working with him on two films he took the time to understand what I wanted and provide a clear visual narrative, whilst offering informed decisions and advice without stepping on my toes as a director. He always makes sure he provides quality work on every shot so that the editing process is a breeze.

Andrew AndersonDirector and Writer

James is consistently polite, reliable, helpful, respectful and all the time maintaining a sense of humour. He is the technician of choice when the department require free-lancers to work on projects. I have no hesitation in recommending and commending this young capable professional.
