After graduating as valedictorian from my film school, I moved to Los Angeles in 2012 with no job, no car, nowhere to live, and an overdrawn bank account. Only a passion to create and entertain. Since then, I have a proven track record to work diligently and rise quickly to exceed expectations. My achievements include:
Producing a decade's worth of major national television shows for CBS, ABC, Fox, and more.
Making my feature directorial debut during the 2020 Covid lockdowns, with the satirical comedy "Coronavirus Conspiracy: Safer at Home." The first union-approved independent film to shoot in Los Angeles after the 2020 lockdowns, the film was co-distributed domestically by Lionsgate.
Writing more than 20 feature screenplays and pilots. Placing as a Semi-Finalist in the 2018 Academy Nicholls Fellowship.
"James is my first call when building a story team. He's a talented storyteller, a dynamic manager, and leader in the field and in the edit bay."
-Faye S, Executive Producer for CBS and ABC
"James Sunshine is one of the brightest producers I've ever worked with. His work ethic is outstanding and his attention to detail is exemplary. He really is that good. Also, his t-shirt game is legendary."
-David D, Executive Producer for HGTV
I am a creative powerhouse at my core
