James Napier Robertson began his career as an actor in the teen shows Being Eve and The Tribe. Finding acting unfulfilling, he moved into writing and directing with the short film Foul Play, before forming a production company with business partner Tom Hern. Since then Napier Robertson has directed two features: I’m Not Harry Jenson and The Dark Horse.

In this ScreenTalk, Napier Robertson talks about:

  • Feeling validated yet unfulfilled as an actor on Being Eve
  • Meeting his future production partner Tom Hern on the kids show The Tribe
  • Possibly taking on too many roles directing his short film Foul Play
  • Underestimating the budget on his first feature film I’m Not Harry Jenson
  • Thinking he’d almost killed one of the actresses on set
  • The responsibility of writing the true story The Dark Horse
  • Feeling very lucky to have created a dream cast for the film
