ABOUT
Hi. My name is James Villeneuve. I'm a freelance director/editor who's been working in Toronto for the past fifteen years.

The short version of this website is as follows: I'm currently directing TV commercials, corporate videos and branded content. As an editor I've cut 10 feature films, crap loads of music videos and a bunch of stuff for TV. Feel free to take a look at the work I've recently directed on the video page. Please give my resume a peak while you're hanging around the website. It's fun AND informative.

Furthermore, I once touched an octopus with my bare hands while snorkelling.
