James Napier Robertson began his screen career as an actor on teen hits Being Eve and The Tribe. It was on The Tribe that he met actor Tom Hern. In 2006 the two formed a company (now known as Four Knights Films), and developed backwoods thriller I'm Not Harry Jenson. Robertson's second movie as director was acclaimed Moa award-winner The Dark Horse, starring Cliff Curtis as real-life chess champ Genesis Potini.

Be utterly determined and relentless, no matter how huge the problems seem. I couldn’t begin to count the number of times that the odds seemed stacked so high against us that it felt impossible. But we somehow struggled on each time, and now they’re all just memories. James Napier Robertson on making your first feature film, Flicks website
