Twist and Shout Communications

Jim’s 25-year-long passion for comedy filmmaking began when he discovered that he could combine the images he was drawing with sounds he''d captured in jars. He owns and runs Twist& Shout Communications, based in Leicester and Dallas, TX.

More recently, they have turned to making simple comedies for the "interweb" helping companies achieve notoriety despite their crushingly dull products and services. In another universe, he is the bastard love-child of Eddie Izzard and Nick from “The Apprentice”.
