It’s a pleasure to welcome James Larese to our directing roster.

James Larese is an award winning director and visual artist, living between LA and New York.  His work is dynamic and striking, pushing boundaries and blurring the lines between commerce and art.

James’s career began in the mid 90s, as a visual artist seamlessly employing the latest technologies to produce art. In 2005 his work caught the eye of Will.I.Am. The pair clicked creatively, resulting in James directing a video for The Black Eyed Peas. Having never stepped onto a film set before, James chose to dive into the world of directing at the deep end.
