James Bastable

James Bastable attended the Cinema Studies program at the University of Toronto where he acquired a broad knowledge of film history, theory and analysis. After graduating with a BA Honours in 2007, he began hands-on training in post production at Humber College where a lifelong love of music and sound made post audio a natural pursuit.

James joined Sim as a mix assistant in 2011. He has since become a vital member of the mix team having worked on films such as Zoom, Hyena Road, and Saigon Bodyguards as well as series such as Vikings, Cardinal, Penny Dreadful and The Handmaid’s Tale.

In his free time, James enjoys cooking, playing guitar, and travelling the world. He owns a dozen black t-shirts and his spirit animal is the red panda.
