Jim Seaney
Writer / Director
Jim Seaney has had a passion for film since his childhood and has devoted much of his life to creating and developing award-winning productions. After graduating from Northwest Nazarene University, Jim started a video production program at Eagle High School (Idaho) from scratch and quickly built it into a nationally-recognized entity. In his 12 years at EHS, Jim's students won a plethora of awards at the state and national level including 11 regional Emmy's and one National Emmy for PSA's on Teen Dating Violence. Those PSA's were picked up for a national campaign and appeared in America's Most Wanted, the Austin Film Festival and were shown in all 50 states in various forms.

At this time, Jim was flown in as a consultant on production and leadership to various states from Florida to New York to Washington DC, where his endeavors even gained him access to the Oval Office. Shortly thereafter, Jim was contacted to shoot a project in Buenos Aires, Argentina and it was at this time that Jim decided to pursue his true passion, feature films.

Run & Shoot has literally been an outpouring of Jim's creative soul. As director and writer of Run & Shoot, Jim Seaney brings a great deal of passion and credibility to the production. As a former football player and coach, Jim has a vast insider's perspective to bringing realistic action to the screen. Jim also has shot football action for the world's largest high school sports website (Maxpreps.com) for the past 4 years and has been named their number one correspondent in the nation. Those that have worked with Jim know that as a leader he is very firm, yet compassionate and knows how to formulate a vision and bring it to life. The same skills that made Jim a winning football coach and a top leader in the classroom are the same skills that will help Jim be successful in the movie industry. His drive to be the best is undoubtedly what has fueled his success in teaching, the business world and inevitably the movie industry as well.

Jim realizes that there are many challenges to being a first time feature director and writer, but will lean on his vast production experience, leadership skills and undeniable passion for the project to turn Run & Shoot into the commercially viable project it has the potential to be. A pragmatic practitioner, Jim will surround himself with the right people with unique skill sets that will allow RocketDog Films to prosper.
