Tim loves the craft of documentary filmmaking. He is a natural born storyteller and loves the process of sifting through hours of footage to find story ‘gold’. He loves road movies and was attracted to the ‘triumph over adversity’ narrative of The Ride. He, too, has great admiration for the characters in the film.
Tim has been an editor for over 20 years. While he is a documentary specialist, he has also cut TV drama, commercials, comedy, music videos, short films and dance films. He won 'Best Drama Editor' at the 2002 NZ Television Awards for Staunch and 'Best Documentary Editor' at the NZ Screen Awards 2005 for Haunting Douglas. In 2006 he was finalist in the documentary editing category of the NZ Screen Awards and the Australian Screen Editor's Guild Awards for his work on The Promise and the NZ Television Awards for Elgar's Enigma. Documentary projects include Coffee, Tea or Me (with Brita McVeigh and Gaylene Preston), Haunting Douglas, The Promise and Try Revolution (with Leanne Pooley), Sheilas: 28 Years On and Elgar's Enigma (with Annie Goldson), the much-awarded Topp Twins, Untouchable Girls, and Toki Does New York.
