Here are the links to my websites that contain his comments:

His comments concerned five of my short filmes, none of which are available to the public, but theatrical trailers are:

-Eeny, Meeny, Miny, MOE… is not available because it has a pending distribution deal and film festivals will not accept films that are available on the internet. I am providing the links to view all of the trailers.

Eeny, Meeny, Miny, MOE... theatrical trailer link:      www.vimeo.com/39088929

Aleph to Taw - abreger theatrical trailer link:  www.vimeo.com/78279331

Our World Order theatrical trailer link:   www.vimeo.com/45363026

Ethan theatrical trailer link:    www.vimeo.com/33800697

-CONFLUENCE – promo video storyboard. This is not available to the public because it is a video storyboard that I use to promote my feature length script, CONFLUENCE, with the object being to attract funding. The storyboard is a rough graphic representation of the first two pages of that story.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support,

James W. Hawk - filmmaker/auteur

PS: If you have any difficulty watching the filmes when you get to Vimeo, click on the “start” arrow of the player and then click “pause”. While on pause you will see the grey progress bar moving to the right. This is the amount of download that has occurred. If you allow this to get near half completed, the film will not hesitate while you are watching it.

About James W. Hawk - filmmaker

Hawk James W.
(HawkMedia Studios / HawkFilme / OldMan Hawk Film)

James "Jim" W. Hawk was born in New Eagle, Pennsylvania. He is of German, Irish, Scottish and Native American (Seneca) decent. At the age of three, he was moved to Cleveland, Ohio. In 1972, he pursued a career in industrial sales and marketing with a Fortune 500 company which resulted in he and his family being relocate to Rochester, New York, South Bend, Indiana and finally, New Haven, Connecticut.

Jim's first independent film project was a two hour and four part documentary called The Old School Roadster on a Budget featuring Larry, a local car guy who built a Roadster in his garage. It was aired on television stations throughout Connecticut. The next project was a commercial for Doritos. The winner of the contest would have their entry shown during the Super Bowl. He didn't win, but he made an outstanding creative work nonetheless. Having these under his belt, he needed the next greater challenge...he wanted to make a short narrative film.

Jim wrote, produced and directed Alpha to Omega: Part 4 with limited resources, but plenty of ingenuity. He wanted to keep it simple so he developed a story line and screenplay featuring the last man on Earth. After lots of work and some luck finding resources, it all came together as his first narrative short film.

Since that time, he has produced, written and directed several short films, documentaries, music filmes commercials and industrial presentations. He has also worked for the Connecticut Film Industry Training Program for two years as an Associate Producer and Director of the "behind the scenes" film of the program for four years. 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 Quinnipiac University. He has had his films shown at film festivals, on local television and at other public venues.

He is always either planning, producing or searching for his next greater challenge.
