James C. Golden ~ C.F.O., Writer & Director
James comes to the Synn with a unique, real world work experience: serving and protecting the public trust as a Constable with the Waterloo Regional Police Service. But as a writer and director James has thrown himself into the film business by co-directing the short pilot project LAST NIGHT with Brad McMillan, and is currently prepping his feature directorial debut. James was also instrumental in the creation of the award-winning short “The Synnema,” a film produced by a team from Synn Studios for the Ed Video Media Arts Centre’s 24-Hour Filmmaking Competition. When not making his own films, James lends his expertise to the coaching of actors in the proper tactics of gun handling and standard police procedures on productions such as SHADES OF GREY.
