Welcome To The Ranch

This is the landing page for Books, Screenplays and Film Services, plus innovative Designs & Builds by James Arnett.


James is a project man, an author, designer and a second generation filmmaker from New York City, New York, having completed two formal filmmaking programs and two internships before relocating to Los Angeles, California to work in independent film.

He also taught the Digital Filmmaking courses at LTU in Los Angeles during the transitional period between optical/chemical methods to digital methods for a decade, where he authored the essential reference book, “Guide Book For Guerrilla Filmmakers.”

James was contracted by the New York State Fraternal Order Of Police to write and produce their feature length "September Eleventh Memorial" series, after relocating to rural Arizona.

Over the years, James has built a very solid reputation for completing the most difficult projects without going over-budget, even turning production disasters around into something better than the original plan [you know, those plans that seem to always go wrong] by regularly offering creative and timely solutions.

Besides making movies, writing fiction, text books, screenplays and software, he designs and builds his own signature furniture at his Arizona Ranch.
