Biography: Film Maker / Director / Actor Jim Prescott

Jim Prescott is a Rock & Roll refugee rehabilitating himself through the discipline of film. With an emphasis on narratives about transformation, his work is otherwise free-form using film, video and digital manipulation, black & white and color, indeed whatever he deems necessary to tell the story. Sound and Soundtrack are primary in his work, and his attention in this regard is heightened by his experience in audio production, and as a jazz bassist and avant-garde composer. With his initial training as an Electrical Engineer and current experience as Executive Director of the JamBox Music Collective, Prescott's skill-set encompasses the entire range of the Film Arts, from budgets to technology, writing to acting. "The last few years there on the road, I was acting like it wasn't driving me crazy!" say's Prescott today.
