Normally the word 'nice' is reserved for really dull boyfriends you're desperate to ditch, so I'm not sure it's much of a compliment to say that CJ is the nicest guy I think I've ever worked with! But seriously...he really IS that 'nice'. The mark of a brilliant director is someone who instantly puts cast and crew at ease, and turns four arduous days of filming into an effortless fun-packed lovefest. Working with CJ is way too enjoyable to ever expect a half-decent movie to fall out the back of it but invariably it does. A bloody good bit of film, every time. I cannot recommend Christian enough. Excellent director. Excellent end product.
Christian James is a miracle-worker with a movie camera, conjuring top-class production values from the tightest budgets, never compromising on creativity to deliver on-time and always to satisfaction. Christian is a true collaborator, consistently in service of the project and the client.
Christian is one of the most affable characters I've had the pleasure of working with. He's a creative Director with high-energy levels and a hugely positive can-do outlook - these qualities make it a pleasure to work with him on every occasion. He takes the hard-work out of any production with his creative ideas, whilst getting the best out of a camera crew, actors and interviewees with such a likeable personality. As a talented, flexible, reliable and enthusiastic Director I can't recommend him highly enough.
Christian is a great film director and he knows every aspect of the filming process. He always provides us with innovative and creative solutions. Our blue chip clients always love his work and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
