James Gilmore is a writer, filmmaker, poet, story analyst, photographer, and game designer. He spent his childhood days exploring the Appalachian wilderness of the mid-Atlantic and his young adulthood tracing the innumerable streets of America’s major cities. After receiving a bachelor of arts degree in theater from West Virginia University in 2006 (along with minors in English, music composition and communications), he went on to graduate from Boston University in 2009 with an MFA in Film specializing in screenwriting. In 2010 he completed a screenwriting certificate professional integration program through the Boston University in Los Angeles study abroad program.
In his unending search for truth in small places, he has uncovered passions for the visual arts, the written word, humanity, and the profound experience of fatherhood. Other interests include philosophy, nature, food, fine Bavarian beers, gender studies, new and emerging technologies, culture, history, recycling, and an unquenchable thirst for learning and discovery. James presently resides in California with his wife and three cats.
