With a spirit of exploration and a highly collaborative process, we partner with brands, artists, organizations and agencies for the creation of meaningful, beautiful films.

Our port of origin is a small production office in historic downtown McMinnville, about an hour south of Portland, Oregon.


We serve the greater Pacific Northwest on the regular, and travel everywhere.

Thank you for your interest in our work, and we look forward to meeting you.

Thanks! Message sent.


First Mate

Sea Dog

Captain Gabriel James started Ghost Village Films in 2015. He is a Producer, Writer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor.

First Mate Benjamin Lee joined the Skeleton Crew in 2023 as Production and Post-Production Assistant, Key Grip, Camera Operator, and Ship's Cook.

Our doodle dog, Bumper, is loyal to us but a friend to all.

The two brothers were raised on movies and music-making, DIY projects, books, board games and LEGO, Interstate travel, the Great Outdoors, and the deep love of family. Men of grit and good humor, they are skilled craftsmen, curious questioners, problem-solvers, and forever learners.


All these things and more are what make them great filmmakers.
