A man of many accolades, JV is a producer, director and editor, with a strong background in comedy and documentary filmmaking. He’s the series producer and director of Cash Cab Canada with host Adam Growe, currently in production on Season 8.
With his local Toronto arts collective Made By Other People, James has produced, directed and edited numerous short and experimental films, notably Animal Control (producer and editor), which premiered at TIFF in 2010, and We Ate the Children Last (editor), which is an adaptation of Yann Martel short story, which also had its premiere at TIFF in 2011.
Most recently, he produced the award-winning short film Slow Win which was chosen by Bruce MacDonald as a top film in the 2013 Toronto Urban Film Festival, and was screened to over a million TTC commuters on TVs throughout the system.
Despite being a bit strange, James enjoys a semi-normal lifestyle, riding his motorcycle, listening to records, and kicking back with a good Old Fashioned. He makes a mean one!
