James decided to put this documentary together to show the process of cancer, rather than just the treatment and aftermath. They faced the challenges of both respecting the treatment process and treating the family with dignity as well as molding the film as it went, rather than having a scripted process to follow.

James served as Program Director for the National Student Leadership Conference on Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of California at Berkeley. He has been involved with film making from a young age and had worked through the process of getting exposure and recognition for almost a decade.

Although technology has been growing more and more accessible and James has a great question to ask filmmakers before they even get started with selecting gear or equipment, he asks “Do you know how to tell a story?” which is an extremely good question.

I enjoyed speaking with James about his career and his vision on film making, talking about the barriers into the business. As a takeaway, if you can take a moment to educate and make a film that can help someone, you should do so without having to always further your career with everything you do.

Please watch the film below and remember that it is our duty as filmmakers and as human beings to find the good in situations that may otherwise be horrible. Be kind and thoughtful with your actions and reward will come in time.
