Filmmaker - Adventurer

"He's a nice bloke... however he is mad."
The Times     
James Levelle extreme adventure filmmaker Free Ride Discovery Channel

James is an adventurer and filmmaker crazy for stories that explore how amazing the natural world is... and how amazing we humans can be too.

His award-winning films have not only taken him to some of the most extreme environments on the planet, they have opened his eyes to the power of film and its potential to change people's perspectives.

‘Free Ride’, James’s most daring and ambitious adventure so far had him team up with environmentalist, Rob Greenfield, on a audacious attempt to cross the continent of South America without any money – ten weeks, six countries and over 9,000km – which James describes as the most mind-blowing journey of his life.


What compelled him to take on such an intimidating challenge and how did he successfully travel across a continent without his wallet?


Times journalist, Hilary Rose, concluded, "He's a nice bloke... however he is mad."


Whilst the Guardian credits him for his indomitable spirit, "with his refusal to be beaten down... If he had to take a cat to be put down, he would still sound like Lord Flashheart geeing up the troops for battle."

James's fascination with the world we live in inspires his ongoing quest for uplifting stories in the most unlikely places.

In 2019 James set off on his greatest adventure yet... a 7000 mile odyssey across Europe, the Atlantic Ocean and South America. 


The challenge?

Travel across two continents and one ocean... fossil fuel free.

The purpose?

Discover from the next generation how they feel about the climate crisis, what we can do about it, and present what he finds in a film to the UN Climate Conference in Chile.
