James Favata

Senior Creative Director

Where you wanna go, brah? You could just pick the spot and let your app guide you. But maybe you need more than the fastest route to your local coffee shop and don’t even know it. As Senior Creative Director at LAI Video, James Favata uses his 10+ years of experience to help you explore new avenues, and who knows, together you may even end up off the map. This journey will inspire more than just a video; this creative visual media adventure will end with experiences you’ll want to watch and share. Because a stop at an offbeat roadside attraction like Foamhenge creates a bigger buzz than a morning cup of joe.

When James isn’t driving LAI Video’s creative content-making RV, he’s at work for family and friends, turning their life’s moments into cinematic stories. Visual communication and documentation is not a career choice, it’s his way of life. Bringing intimate docu-style storytelling techniques to his projects consistently evokes the response, “Wow, that looks like a movie”. Every project, from crafting the perfect Instagram post to mapping out a multi-faceted video campaign, gets the same critical eye, the same creativity, and the same beard.
