James Anderson

After training at South Seas Film School in 1999, James Anderson began his career on music shows Squeeze and Space, becoming a cameraman and editor on both.

Since then Anderson has travelled the world helming Making Tracks, and been AFTA-nominated for primetime's Food Truck.

... anyone can come up with an idea for a TV show — it’s about what you do with it, all the other elements, then selling the idea and getting people to invest in it that counts.
