James Patrick O'Malley

A seasoned storyteller, James has produced, directed, shot and edited award-winning live action film, animation and visual effects for advertising, corporate communication, cinema, events, rich media, out-of-home and special installations, creating unscripted stories, narrative film, tv spots, corporate, live event and music videos.

He has worked with a range of on-camera and voice talent, from music, theater and tv celebrities, pro athletes, corporate executives, real people, animals and kids, that were sometimes also animals. He has shot on the water, in the water, in the air, on stages and, as preferred, mostly on location, but always on time.

Constantly collaborative, James has supervised or supported hundreds of projects for a wide range of corporate clients, ad agencies, production companies and entertainers throughout the US, Brazil and Holland. He loves the fast pace of live-action production, the capture of the moment, and the real-time creative demands when producing great work with a great big team, or as solo or micro crew filmmaker.

His lifetime expertise goes beyond leading teams to collaborate on complex projects, to his broad experience in a wide range of disciplines and essential creative life skills that directly impact the tangible and emotional outcome of daily life, business, career and creative endeavors.

James consults and coaches artists, musicians, doctors, small business owners and a federal judge, and the coaching they require is as varied as each individual. And he holistically supports and empowers each one, because each success, failure, situation and event is not isolated from the rest, and so must be celebrated, measured or modified as a whole, and in real time, in order to truly become part of the new you.

This convergence of experience and philosophy is also the genesis of MIOStream.net which James created to empower Creators to improve their lives, focus on their dreams and constantly create more, to entertain and truly engage their fans, in a positive loop of love that grows, free of distractions, so they can live their dreams and love their life.

Many projects are original unscripted short form creations developed alone or directly with clients. Some projects were executed as a solo filmmaker and others with a micro crew. Also included are some scripted projects created solo or micro from prep through post.


Projects with chroma key live action integrated with animation and practical or visual effects. James is frequently supervising prep-to-post producer, director, camera and editor. On freelance projects he's a mix of producer, shooter and/or editor.


Capturing big events with small crews is another specialty. This reel is a mix of live shows captured with micro multi-camera teams or as solo shooter, and usually requiring smooth interaction with performers and the partying public.


As a multi-faceted freelance department head, James has edited and supervised custom workflows on music videos, unscripted shorts, feature films, news reports and other media with American, Brazilian, Dutch and British storytellers.
