My name is James Rosario and I am an independent filmmaker who lives in the Asheville, NC area. I started Bigger Boat Pictures in the fall of 2013 as banner for all of my creative video work to fall under.

I am a writer, director, producer, and editor of short films, documentaries, music videos, and branded content. I love to tell stories, big and small, and would love to help you tell yours.

My roots are in the international punk rock community where I have cultivated a strong independent and D.I.Y. ethic, as well as an interesting and unique point of view. I tend to see things from a street level, both creatively and economically, giving me an edge that is hard to manufacture or invent.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any video needs. I’d love to help.


Bigger Boat Records

My wife and I also run a record label! Bigger Boat Records started in 2011 and releases and distributes music on vinyl. We are dedicated to a D.I.Y. philosophy, utilizing mostly re-purposed materials for our packaging, as well as hand screen-printing our record jackets, t-shirts, etc. all ourselves. Click on the links below to check out our releases, the records we distribute for some of our ally labels, and our blog, The Daily Orca, where you can find record reviews, movie reviews, film analysis, and a number of other articles relating to D.I.Y. filmmaking and music.
