    About me

    James Uren is passionate about using emerging technology for storytelling. He has been making films for over 10 years. He has worked in a variety of roles on productions for commercial clients and funded independent film. After graduating from Cambridge with a Masters in Engineering, he started out in the industry as an engineer in the early days of high-end digital acquisition (Codex Digital). Alongside this he gained feature film experience as a sound designer (Dressing Granite, 2007) and documentary editor (Law and War in Rural Kenya, 2010), while making his own short films. In 2011 James started working solely in 3D stereoscopic and went on to win awards for his first dramatic short film (Special Mention Best Short Film, Dogville, Barcelona and 3D Innovation Award New Media Film Festival, LA). As 3D’s popularity faded, he moved to working in science and technology documentary. His recent film, Pain in the Machine, was funded by Cambridge University and has been screened at a number of international festivals. James now has a feature drama in development and a series of funded short documentaries in production under the banner Rise of the Thinking Machines.
