James Bickert on the set of Frankenstein Created Bikers

Who the hell am I? Well, I’ve been called brilliant and I’ve been called a fool. If you’re placing a wager, you might want to pick door number two. The way I look at it, we only have one life so I write, produce, direct, edit and market the films I want to see. Sometimes I’m pretty decent at it. Since everyone is serving up a slice of their own self-important reality these days, I’m throwing my plate in the sink. I suck lemons when it comes to the social media realm, preferring to stare at the silver screen over a phone, but like I said, I can make a feature film. Sometimes I’m pretty decent at it.  I’ve always been humble so this digital boasting approach is quite bizarre for me but I need to make films in this strange land. You do what you have to do. I grew up at drive-in movie theaters in the seventies and flea pit video stores in the eighties so that’s where my aesthetic loyalties swing; quite often Amos Vogel’s Film as a Subversive Art creeps in there too.  And rock n roll. Lots of rock n roll.  I hope you like my art, I work my ass off to make it. If you don’t get it, that’s cool too.  It’s just something I have to do. Thanks for visiting.
