After a successful career as an agency creative, working with some of the industry’s best directors, Tim was inspired to get behind the camera himself. His directing career started with a short film ‘The Moors’ which won STRAIGHT 8 and was nominated at BBC talent and Cannes ‘BEST NEW DIRECTOR’. His innate knack for casting, subtle performances and observed comedy have since garnered him awards at D&AD, BTAA, Cannes, Creative Circle and Promax GOLD. Shots have selected Tim twice; once for the Shark Evolution Top Ten New Directors and then again for their ‘Divine Collection’ with his VW ‘Service Plan’ spot making the APA Top 50. His Royal Mail ‘Coffee Cup’ TVC won a silver arrow in the ‘John Webster’ best idea in 30 Seconds’ at BTAA’s, and his Samsung Monkey spot has over 6 million hits on YouYube, (his late great uncle, the writer D.H. Lawrence, would surely have approved).
