James Powell

Founder, Monster City Studios

If creativity could be bottled and sold, James would make a fortune. He has oodles of the stuff. As a child prodigy, James began building models, but they weren’t any ordinary models like most of us have built – from a kit – passing out from the smell of glue.Having done projects for companies such as Disney, Paramount Pictures, the Cartoon Network, Sony and others, as well as projects for notable celebrities and high profile clients, James has been able to apply years of industry experience to helping Monster City develop memorable, award-winning creations. We’re still searching for ways to bottle all that creativity.
