James W. Hawk is a United States Army veteran.
James W. Hawk is an award-winning independent film director, writer, and producer. He is also a published author and photographic artist. He proudly served his country as a Scout in the 107th Armored Cavalry.
As a filmmaker, Dr. Raymond Foery, Professor Emeritus Quinnipiac University Film, Television, and Media Arts, said of Hawk, “A truly imaginative filmmaker with a highly sophisticated sense of cinematic acuity. Jim has been remarkably active in various genres. As a director of narrative fiction, he has shown a sure hand with actors and a sophisticated appreciation of mise-en-scene. As a creator of animated visual motifs, Jim has displayed a mastery of the latest techniques and a sophisticated sense of composition complemented by a rich appreciation of theatrical style. Each of his projects also reveals the mind of an artist grappling with the eternal philosophical dilemmas of our existence on this planet – as well as some speculation about those other planets out there. In short, Jim’s work forces us to think as well as to look.”
Hawk has had 105 films screened at 57 film festivals/venues worldwide. One of his films was exhibited at an Art Exhibition in Rome, Italy. Two of his films were award-winners, one of his movies finished as a finalist at a film festival, and four of his films finished as semi-finalists. He has more than 150 credits on IMDb.
