Effective visual storytelling isn’t done by following the “numbers,” by finding that secret camera setting, or by that one lighting setup. Instead, creating powerful images that support your story begins by understanding the “whys” behind the “hows”. By teaching you the “whys” we aim to empower you to grow throughout your career so you don’t get stuck in one way of doing things or get left behind on dated technology.
We are here to keep you stay on the smart side of filmmaking.
Tim’s aspirations to be a filmmaker date back to grade school, where he incorporated video into school projects every chance he got. Despite this passion, his college education was much more traditional (biochemistry/biophysics). Just as he was nearly done with his Ph.D. in neurotoxicology, he saw the light, returned to film, and never looked back.
Since then he has worked on an array of projects for clients such as National Geographic, Adidas, Runner’s World, Autodesk, Nike, and the Oregon Historical Society.
Being one who strives to “shake things up a bit,” Tim enjoys unusual hobbies such as unicycling, triathlons, skydiving, mountaineering, and scuba diving.
