Tim began making films aged 9, went to Ravensbourne College aged 18 to study film-making, and got his first job at a company that trained politicians to go on TV. When the pop video boom came along in the early eighties, he helped to push the medium forwards, creating many iconic musical films which people still remember to this day. Subsequently, he directed much work for TV, short films, movies, documentaries and commercials. As well as working these days on many current projects, he also lectures in film at Chichester University and other places.
