James Brown III

Co-Founder/ Chief Creative Officer

James Brown III is the Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Story House Pictures, Inc. His former production company, Tríonóide Entertainment, LLC., was acquired by SHP, Inc. where James executive produced two award winning films, White Flags, and most recently, Early Light. Early Light was shot in Sheridan, Wyoming in partnership with CHAPS Equine Assisted Therapy and 12.5% of the film’s capital raise and proceeds were awarded to this Wyoming based organization dedicated to treating Veterans and children living with a myriad of mental challenges. The film has been selected in dozens of film festivals over the last year and was the catalyst to this journey of bringing a major film studio to Wyoming. 

Brown III founded Broadway Style Guide, a popular web-based lifestyle magazine focused on bridging the gap between Fashion and Broadway, where he served as the magazine’s Creative Director & Fashion Editor until he sold the brand to TodayTix in a major acquisition in 2017. He also served as Fashion Editor of Chill Magazine, produced by Out. Along with his father James Brown Jr., actor Boris Kodjoe, and Patrick Kodjoe, Brown III is a co-founder of World of Alfa, a web-based tailor made suit and clothing company.

With over 10 years of marketing, creative directing, artistic directing, design, journalism, and writing experience, James Brown III is the perfect person to lead the creative vision of Story House.
