We are very excited to welcome a new special guest for Episode #14 of The Cinema Squad Podcast:
Mr. James Wallace!! Let’s meet him:
James Wallace was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. Growing up he was obsessed with movies and television memorizing useless factoids that would be great in a trivia game or Jeopardy. He made the move to California in 2004 after his Dad’s urging, due to giving up on a high school teaching career. Once in California, he went through the rigors of the industry, working on various low budget films, commercials, television shows and finally landing on the critically acclaimed show “House, M.D.” where he met Sean Wathen and Lee Perez of Cinema Squad. Where sometimes on the Cinema Squad Podcasts you may hear Lee refer to “Wallace” – that’s me! After the end of “House, M.D.” James went on to work as an Assistant Production Coordinator or Production Coordinator on shows such as “The Fosters,” “Togetherness” and “Silicon Valley.” In his spare time, James directs and produces short films while trying his hand at his real passion in the industry: screenwriting. If all else fails, he’ll have enough for a Behind The Scenes Tell All with what he has seen in the industry.
Be sure to tune into this week’s Podcast which is set to drop on Sunday, May 22nd. We’ll give you all the latest movie news covering everything from script to screen.
