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. A passion that I've held as far back as I can remember. Since then I've carved out a very successful career in the highly competitive entertainment industry. I have a proven track record to work diligently, be a creative powerhouse, and rise quickly to exceed expectations.

I above all consider myself a storyteller and an "idea guy." I try and bring a sharp wit and a sense of humor to every project I touch, and I'm credited with:

  • Producing over half a decade's worth of major national television shows for CBS, ABC, Fox, and more.

  • Directing numerous short films that have gone on to win awards in festivals, plus advertisements that have aired nationally.

  • 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, Supervising Producer for Fox
