Bio of James W. Hawk – filmmaker and published author
James W. Hawk was born in New Eagle, Pennsylvania, and grew up in East Cleveland, Ohio. He is of German, Irish, Scottish, and Native American (Seneca) decent. He attended Ohio University in Architecture and completed his higher education at Cleveland State University as a Mechanical Engineer. He pursued a career in industrial sales and marketing with a Fortune 500 company which resulted in relocations to Rochester, New York, South Bend, Indiana, and New Haven, Connecticut.
Jim's first independent film project was a two-hour cinema verite called Old School Roadster which aired on Connecticut television.
Jan Harlan (executive producer for Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg) viewed Jim’s work and gave his work high marks. F. Miguel Valenti viewed Jim’s work and assessed it as better than much of what is released these days.
One of Jim’s films was recently awarded semi-finalist at a science fiction film festival out of a thousand entries. One film was selected to be an exhibit at an art exhibition in Rome, Italy.
Jim wrote, produced, and directed his first scripted short film, Alpha to Omega: Part 4 with limited resources and plenty of ingenuity. Since that time, he has produced, written, and directed many narrative short films, documentaries, music videos, animation films, experimental films, time-lapse films, and industrial presentations.
Jim has also worked for the Connecticut Film Industry Training Program for three years as an Associate Producer and Director of the "behind the scenes" film of their short film project. 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 a local university. He has had his films shown at film festivals, local venues like Quinnipiac University, and on local television. His work is represented on IMDb.
He continues to make short films and has added “published author” to his resume. He recently published the first short story of his ATHOIA Anthology which is titled TO beta-VANVERDEN AND BACK on Amazon Kindle. Clyde Phillips, a writer and producer for the award-winning television series, DEXTER, gave VANVERDEN a maximum 5-star rating.. His second short story, FAILURE, was number two on the Amazon Top 100 Best-Selling U.S. Short Story list. His third short story, WILLARD’S FUNDAMENTAL FORCE, was number eleven on Amazon's Best Sellers in Science Fiction Anthologies.
