The first film that influenced James was “man with a camera” by Soviet director vertov.

His undergraduate graduation documentary "19501 highlands" drew lessons from some of its designs, "19501 highland" has no script and no props. At the same time, it integrates the narrative mode of the feature film and adopts the form of multi-character and multi-angle hyperlink film. The unique design of the film also helped him get excellent graduation work at the undergraduate stage. James likes the narrative of hyperlink movies.
