James Patrick O'Malley

A seasoned storyteller, James has created and produced award-winning live action film, animation and visual effects for advertising, corporate communication, cinema, events, rich media, out-of-home and special installations, while working in any required media or format; from film to digital, SD to 8K & new media like LiveStream, 360VR & S3D.

He has worked with a range of on-camera and voice talent, from pro athletes, musicians and celebrities, to seasoned actors, corporate executives, real people, animals and kids. He has shot on the water, in the water, in the air, on stages and, as preferred, mostly on location, but always on time.

His expertise goes beyond complex projects leading large crews, to his broad experience creating scripted and unscripted media, filmed shorts, music videos and live content with a micro crew or as solo creator from prep-through-post masters.

UNSCRIPTED SOLO FILMMAKER

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.

LIVE ACTION WITH ANIMATION & FX

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.

LIVE SHOWS & EVENTS

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.

VIDEO EDITOR & POST SUPERVISOR

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.
