Eight Armed Studio was spawned in 2007 when James (Eightarms) needed a name that represented his work ethic. Being a photographer, designer, videographer, and musician it seemed James has his hands in everything. Thus, Eight Armed became an appropriate name for the continuously productive studio. Our mission is to create work that is professional and intriguing (think three-piece suit with a mohawk). If you’re looking for something generic and sterile, keep on walking. We get dirty.
Currently working and creating out of the Boston area. James earned a BA in Graphic Design at UMass Lowell with a minor in Art History. Inspiration for design work comes from the music he listens to. Lyrics create scenes and sound creates the atmosphere. James has been drawing since the age of seven, so creation is something that comes natural.
Credited on IMDB as the video editor of the mob movie “BOYS” produced by the Silva Screen.
