Filmmaker and Director John Michaels gives Testimonial for James W. Hawk

user
I met Filmmaker and Director John Michaels about a week ago and he gave me a testimonial for my work. Mr Michaels' testimonial states: "Jim is the most talented unknown I've ever met. His work is as close to perfect as it gets. Each frame is given so much thought that it is only a matter of time until we see his name on a commercial blockbuster.The biggest mistake you can make on your next project is by NOT hiring him." Here are Mr. Michaels film industry credits: ...

There is only one direction to go…FORWARD!

user
I recently read (again) the Steven Spielberg biography by Joseph McBride. There is a passage in the book that always gets my attention. “Early in 1977, when Close Encounters was still months away from completion, George Lucas showed a rough cut of Star Wars (without John Williams’s rousing musical score) at his San Anselmo home, in northern California. The audience included executives of Twentieth Century-Fox; Gloria Katz and William Huyck, who worked on the script; and several of Lucas...

RE-CUT AN EARLIER FILM IN B&W and “GOING HOME” WENT TO THE LHFF

user
“Our World Order” is re-cut in black and white  I recently re-cut one of my first films which is now entitled “Our World Order - redux”. The primary driving factor for re-cutting it was to make it black and white which I had started a long time ago, but was re-motivated as of late by “The Artist”. But as long as I was going to do the change to monochrome, I also cleaned up a few other things and before you know it was almost a new film. The story line is unchanged, but I...

THEATRICAL TRAILER FOR "ETHAN" IS POSTED ON FEST21 AND A NEW ACTRESS DEMO REEL IS COMPLETED

user
The theatrical trailer for ETHAN, a short film I recently completed, has been posted on Fest21. It can be viewed by going to the USER VIDEOS section of my profile page. This was a challenging project. The short film, ETHAN, is five minutes long. The challenge was to pull out a trailer without giving away the story. I think it came out good. The trailer is less than a minute long. Unfortunately the short film will not be available for viewing for a while due to the rules placed by many film f...

TRAILER for a new short filme, "ETHAN" now on IMDb

user
I just finished a trailer for my short filme, "ETHAN". Ethan is a little boy with a big problem. His father is the source of that problem. Ethan is wiser than his years and will bring that wisdom to bear in his attempted solution to the problem. See the short film, "Ethan" to see if father and son can reconcile their differences. This was not a simple project. The short filme is only five minutes long which does not provide a lot of material without giving away the fil...

Happy Holidays

There isn't much going on this time of the year. That is a good thing because it provides time to get existing projects finished or, at least, better organized. In addition, I'm working on two feature scripts and two short scripts. Have a happy holiday and may 2012 exceed your wildest expectations. Thank you for your support, Jim Hawk ...

Recent Film Festival Entries

On October 15, 2011 two of my short films were screened at the Silk City Filck Fest in Hartford, Connecticut. The first one  was "Ethan". It is a story about a young boy who is wiser than his years and how he solves a personal problem. The second one was "Eeny, Meeny, Miny, MOE...". It is the story of a cop who is dealing with a crumbling marriage. Both of these project lingered on in post production for the lack of a sound editor. Then all of a sudden two ...

Guest on the set of THE WEDDING

I was a guest on the set of The Wedding yesterday which is shooting in Connecticut. It stars Robert De Niro, Robin Williams and Amanda Seyfried to mention just a few of the great cast. Some of the people that were there included Amanda Seyfried, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes and, of course, Justin Zackham, the writer and director.It was a beautiful day which is worthy of mention due to all the hot and rainy days we've had lately. The house used for the set was fantastic. There are people that actu...

About James W. Hawk - filmmaker

Hawk James W.
(HawkMedia Studios and HawkFilme)

James "Jim" W. Hawk was born on March 22, 1945 in New Eagle, Pennsylvania. He is of German, Irish, Scottish and Native American (Seneca) decent. At the age of three, he was moved to Cleveland, Ohio. In 1972, he pursued a career in industrial sales and marketing with a Fortune 500 company which resulted in he and his family being relocate to Rochester, New York, South Bend, Indiana and finally, New Haven, Connecticut.

Jim's first independent film project was a two hour and four part documentary called The Old School Roadster on a Budget featuring Larry, a local car guy who built a Roadster in his garage. It was aired on television stations throughout Connecticut. The next project was a commercial for Doritos. The winner of the contest would have their entry shown during the Super Bowl. He didn't win, but he made an outstanding creative work nonetheless. Having these under his belt, he needed the next greater challenge...he wanted to make a short narrative film.

Jim wrote, produced and directed Alpha to Omega: Part 4 with limited resources, but plenty of ingenuity. He wanted to keep it simple so he developed a story line and screenplay featuring the last man on Earth. After lots of work and some luck finding resources, it all came together as his first narrative short film.

Since that time, he has produced, written and directed several short films, documentaries, music filmes commercials and industrial presentations. He has also worked for the Connecticut Film Industry Training Program for two years as an Associate Producer and Director of the "behind the scenes" film of the program for four years. He has been interviewed on television regarding the making of one of his short films. He has had several minor acting parts in independent films. He has taken filmmaking classes at Quinnipiac University. He has had his films shown at film festivals, on local television and at other public venues.

He is always either planning, producing or searching for his next greater challenge.
