James Nicholas ‘Jimmy’ Thompson grew up in Bath, United Kingdom, developing his love for film when he acquired an old video camera at the age of 10 and instantly began writing scripts and directing films for his friends to star in. Thompson recently graduated with a First Class Honours in English Literature from Cardiff University during which he spent a semester abroad studying at State University of New York.
Throughout his studies, Thompson wrote extensively for the Cardiff student culture magazine, Quench, and the student newspaper, Gair Rhydd, and has since then written various articles and film reviews for Bath Film Festival where he worked as Copy Editor.
After the festival, Thompson moved to London where he began a Marketing Internship at the luxury cinema chain, Everyman Media Ltd. Though after a couple of months, he was offered a position at the UK’s leading distributor of Events Cinema, More2Screen, where he now currently works as a Marketing & Sales Executive.
