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) descent. 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.

Hawk’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 Hawk’s work and gave it high marks. F. Miguel Valenti saw Hawk’s work and assessed it as better than much of what is released these days.

One of Hawk’s films was an exhibit at a Rome Italy art exhibition recently. Four of his movies were semi-finalists at film festivals. One of Hawk’s films was recently awarded semi-finalist at a science fiction film festival out of a thousand entries. He has had films screened at 38 film festivals/venues around the world, with 81 films being official selections. He has had his films shown on local television.

Hawk 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.

Hawk 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 several times on television regarding the making of some of his short films. His work appears on IMDb, where he is one of the top lifetime contributors. He is a colleague of the USVAA (United States Veteran’s Artist Alliance. He also serves on the advisory committee of CARTMICA.

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 5-star rating.

Jim is also a photographic artist with his work appearing on Fine Art
