At Amazon Studios



Jim Thalman grew up not far from where they shot “ON THE WATERFRONT”, the famed Kazan, Brando film that forever changed the scape of film-making. His God-Parents actually met on the set, the deal was Uncle John would get the girls (my mom and aunt) close to Brando
if Aunt Joan, would go out on a date with him, he kept his end of the deal, she kept her’s and the rest is history or at least family. So needless to say Brando was always a topic of conversation. Jim's mother Frances, an avid Theatre lover, introduced Jim to the NYC theatre scene at a very young age, but not the Broadway scene, nearly as much as the Avant-Guarde movement happening downtown on East 4th St. in the heart of the Bowery, venues like LA MAMA were etched into my world with these really tough, no nonsense guys and sleek, sexy girls who were just as tough.
Decades later, Jim now sits on the Board of Directors for HExTC: a multimedia company that has produced such Award Winning Films as: "The Secret Under The Rose" (4 international Awards), "The Poker Lesson" (6 International Awards), with the Upcoming "16 Minutes" & "Black n Blue" both due for completion in the fall of 2017. HExTC has also developed the TV series "West Of The City" .
