Jayden James

Jayden is a Victoria-based writer and filmmaker equipped with a breadth of storytelling experience from all stages of production including creative development (Matchbox Pictures), field producing (Survivor US), and feature producing (The Taverna).

When he’s not writing in some obscure Melbourne cafe, Jayden spends most of his time reading, exploring remote islands, and re-applying a copious amount of sunscreen.

With a passion for intricate storytelling, his original scripts cover a colourful array of themes and genres from a bush-ranging drama that challenges Australian ideals, to a comedic miniseries about a whimsical South-African travel host unraveling the world, to an animated feature exploring the socio-cultural history of the Himalayan yak herders. Most notable amongst his works is Jayden’s dystopian thriller script (Golden Soil), recently shortlisted for the 2020 Monte Miller awards.
