Award-Winning Scottish Film Producer and Director James Rose

After graduating from Robert Gordon University, James Rose carved a successful path in the business world. However, a deep-seated love for the arts led him to pursue acting at The Oxford School of Drama. His talent shone on stage, television, and film, culminating in a globally recognized commercial where he portrayed the unforgettable "Simon the Ogre," a role that received the prestigious Silver Lion Award at Cannes Lions.

Driven by a desire to make a positive impact beyond entertainment, James furthered his expertise by becoming an award-winning therapist and well-being consultant. Equipped with a Master's degree in Psychology from Birbeck, University of London, he founded James Rose Coaching and Cognitive Direction, two companies dedicated to helping individuals and organizations achieve optimal mental health.

Combining his profound understanding of human behavior (earned through an MFA at Raindance Film School) with his business and artistic background, James established Tartan Underdog. This Scottish-American film production company is fueled by a passion for crafting emotionally resonant narratives that inspire, excite, and provoke thought.

Tartan Underdog goes beyond captivating audiences with compelling stories. We actively champion social issues and prioritize mental health awareness within the creative process itself. We are unwavering in our dedication to producing films that resonate deeply with viewers, leaving a lasting testament on hearts and minds.
