Mr. James Adams Brooks: a screenwriter, director, and producer currently based in Nevada – 23+ Year Motion Picture/Television background.

A dynamic, creative Producer, with ability to envision the genesis of a creative idea and manage conceptual projects successfully from beginning to end. Resourceful and innovative, producing inspiring works throughout the industry. Film tax incentive conversant James Brooks has already started building a very solid reputation as a respected regional filmmaker, and has garnered consistent acclaim with a number of very well-received low budget full-length feature films, documentaries, music videos, industrial infomercials, short films, and award-winning commercial productions.

While constantly endeavoring to live up to his early accolades as the “epitome of the young urban filmmaker,” Brooks makes his home and creative hub for his personal production company here in Las Vegas but has had several opportunities to work around the globe.

Witnessing the huge influx of influential resources that had only just begun flocking to Las Vegas (creative talents from Hollywood, New York, and everywhere in between, all seeking to build upon this city’s unique and dazzling strengths as a production location from which to springboard and backdrop more and more Movies, TV Shows, and Reality Series), James set out to prove himself “someone to watch” – in a very unique manner. While outside powers were interested in bringing all that they had to offer together in this locale, James was determined to be one of the first regional producers to develop and spotlight the local pool of talent. In the process, he helped to build-up a terrific new resource of superior emergent talents: Writers, Directors, Editors, Actors, Costumers, Makeup Designers, Audio Experts, Musicians, Cinematographers, and all other manner of Production Personnel; every one of which he has been able to gather together under his control as a loosely coalesced “studio” –and whose combined forces he has been able to draw upon to see his various projects through to fruition…with remarkable end results.

James is the son of a deeply religious Minister father, whose ideals were the foundation of James’ soul and buoyant spirit, just as his mother’s steady influence as a dedicated housewife, overseeing the fantastically rambunctious home (which was filled to the brim and beyond with his 13 brothers and sisters) instilled his strong morality and heartfelt dedication to family; whereas that wild abundance of siblings helped to fill his dreams with playfulness and drama, as well as foster his ability to work so well for and with others –along with a keenly observed understanding of all the many possibilities for expression of personality that can lead to success and fulfillment.
